  • Good for Washington he needed it, the Nordic nightmare really really hasn’t looked good in a long time good even fight.

    • I’m glad Washington finally got a decent victory KO. Hopefully he can keep the momentum going and get back into the thick of heavyweight title contention.

  • Robert Helenius is officially done as a threat in the division. He hasn’t been in a while, but I guess he had contractual issues or injuries or something that kept him out of the ring for what should have been the most crucial years of his career. Or perhaps he was never that good to begin with, wither way, we’ll never know

  • I’m not surprised Helenius was knocked out. Anyone who fights with his chin untucked like he did is asking for it. That was one of the first things I leaned from my coach when boxing in the Marines. ‘Tuck your chin to your chest.’ My be some pathetic trainers out there.
