  • If Helenius would utilize a stiff jab he could win this easily, but he won’t and he’ll get starched by Adam…

  • Kownacki may be plump, but this is such a mismatch, I can’t envision on any planet where Helenius would last more than three rounds. Rather see Pigs Ass Ruiz get in shape and take a run at Kownacki! That’s a pick-em fight if Ruiz stays out of the pizza shop and bars!

  • Helenius is a decent boxer- puncher with no chin. He won’t last under the pressure more than 4 or 5 rounds.

  • Hellenius once looked promising, but that victory he had over Chizora was a disgrace. Chisora won at least 8 rounds. I guess they were concerned, since Finland in recent years has only had Hellenius and that guy who fought a light weight, and actually lost a split decision in Finland in a world title fight. I think Kownacki by KO.

    • I agree, that was one of the biggest if not the biggest robbery I ever seen. Chisora won that fight easy

  • And we need to see this because??????? O yeh Kownacki looked so ordinary against Arreola in his last bout. Lets see Kownacki fight someone better. Hey PBC, please stop feeding the fans this shit.

    • It’s a stay busy fight. Kownacki is fun to watch too, so that’s reason to watch. Short of fighting one of the up and comers, the rest of the Division lacks talent. Somebody mentioned Whyte below, but is that enough to truly excite you? I’d love to see him and Ruiz, because stylistically I think they’d mesh well, but I’ll just take the stay busy for now.

  • I like this fight for Kownacki. Opponent has a good record and is a solid contender. If he wins he’ll be right there for a title shot eliminator. This is a decent test for him.

  • This guy Kownacki is the guy to retire, once and all, the heavyht champ wannabee Dillian Whyte, Whyte is talking trash but he isn’t as good as he claims to be… Kownacki can take a punch and he is relentless throughout an entire fight… Whyte has no stamnia and gets sloppy mid-fight as he doesn’t take his training seriously enough… holding on to too much flab.. I see Kownacki KO-ing Whyte and sending him packin’ to “Dancing With The Wannabees Show “
