HELENIUS-SPROTT HEAVYWEIGHT BOUT SET FOR SATURDAY
Press Release: Is heavyweight Robert Helenius (18-0, 11 KOs) back to his best? On March 23rd in Magdeburg, Germany, WBO 168-pound titlists Arthur Abraham (36-3, 28 KOs) and Robert Stieglitz (43-3, 24 KOs) will meet for the second time within seven months after Abraham took Stieglitz's title away from him on August 25th. In the co-feature, Helenius takes on Britain’s Michael Sprott (37-19, 17 KOs) in only his second fight after a lengthy spell on the sidelines due to an injury. Helenius says he is in great shape to fend off the challenge of the very experienced Sprott. The Berkshire born fighter recently upset Helenius´ Team Sauerland stablemate Edmund Gerber. So Helenius knows that it won’t be a walk in the park on March 23rd. “I was present in Nuremberg when he beat Gerber,” said Helenius. “Sprott is technically gifted, so I will have to make use of my height and reach advantage. My jab could make the difference.” Epix will air the fight in the United States.
