Deontay Wilder will be battling the dangerous puncher Robert Helenius on October 15th in his comeback fight in a WBC heavyweight title eliminator on FOX Sports pay-per-view at the Barclays Centre in Brooklyn, New York.
Former WBC heavyweight champion Wilder (42-2-1, 41 KOs) has decided not to play it safe for his return fight, as he’s picked one of the hardest hitting fighters in the division in 6’6″ Helenius for their 12-round clash in the main event.
Deontay Wilder says he is very excited at coming back to Brooklyn to continue to bring greatness to the world because that’s where he had some of his best electrifying knockouts.
The winner of the Wilder vs. Helenius fight will be the WBC mandatory challenger to champion Tyson Fury, who currently says he’s retired.
