Robert Helenius Hopes To Get Obligatory Crack at Usyk-Joshua Winner

Heavyweight contender Robert Helenius is hoping that his latest victory will land him a compulsory shot on the winner of the upcoming rematch between Oleksandr Usyk and Anthony Joshua, who’re being positioned to collide for a second time within the first quarter of 2022.

Final at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, Usyk outboxed Joshua over twelve rounds to seize the 4 world titles.

Joshua has since exercised a direct rematch clause.

Earlier this month, Helenius picked up a dominating TKO win in his pay-per-view rematch with Adam Kownacki. Their combat was a part of the PPV card for the Tyson Fury vs. Deontay Wilder trilogy combat.

The rematch with Kownacki was sanctioned by the WBA as a remaining eliminator.

Helenius and his handlers are hoping the WBA will order a compulsory combat with Usyk or Joshua in 2022.

“Proper now we’re targeted on the WBA necessary place,” Helenius’ supervisor Markus Sundman informed Sky Sports activities.

“Robert fought a WBA elimination bout in March 2020 in opposition to Adam Kownacki, and he positioned a stamp on that victory within the rematch on October 9. Usyk ought to actually be Robert’s subsequent bout. There isn’t a extra deserving challenger within the WBA. Charr, Bryan, Dubois, are they extra deserving? I believe not.

“Typically you need to dig your heels within the floor and combat for one thing essential, and I am unable to consider something in sport extra essential than the heavyweight championship. We are going to do what is important to guarantee Robert’s rightful place as Usyk’s subsequent WBA necessary.

“Ultimately, after all we’ve got respect for [WBA President] Gilberto [Mendoza] and the WBA, and we predict that in the end they’ll do the proper factor and formally order Robert as the subsequent necessary. The WBA necessary is due subsequent, and that have to be Robert.”
