Helenius Hits Back At Chisora:
"You Are Going To Get Knocked Out"
Robert Helenius (24-1, 15 KOs) has hit back at claims made
by Dereck Chisora’s (26-7, 18 KOs) coach Don Charles ahead
of their rematch for the WBC Silver World Heavyweight title
on May 27 at the Hartwall Arena in Helsinki, Finland.
‘The Nordic Nightmare’ holds a controversial split decision
win over Chisora from their all-action showdown December
2011, which many, including Charles, believed the British
boxer did enough to win.
“Every fighter needs an incentive, and the incentive here is
to correct the original decision,’’ said Chisora’s trainer.
‘’Dereck has to be the referee, judge and the jury. We are
not leaving anything to chance.
“I hate giving fighters instructions to go out looking for
the KO, but for this fight, Dereck is under strict
instruction to go out there and knock this guy out.
“Robert is a good fighter, but without a doubt he has not
been the same man since he first fought Dereck. Dereck
knocked every last inch of confidence out of him. I am very
confident that Dereck will knock him out!”
On hearing these comments, Helenius has issued a video
message to his long-time rival, in which the Finnish
heavyweight states: ‘’You can be the judge, you can be the
referee, I don’t care, you are going to get knocked out
anyway, On 27th May, I’m going to be coming to the ring with
both my hands so you better be ready!’’
