Anthony Joshua vs. Robert Helenius: How To Stream, Betting Odds And Fight Card
August 12 will see the return to the ring of British heavyweight Anthony Joshua (25-3). the O2 Arena in London was set to host the rematch between AJ and Dillian Whyte until The Body Snatcher failed a pre-fight drug test. Matchroom announced the cancellation of the PPV bout between the two, with Eddie Hearn and his team working overtime to save the card. Joshua will now face a late replacement in Finnish heavyweight Robert Helenius (32-4).
Joshua comes into this rematch on the back of an unconvincing unanimous points win over American Jermaine Franklin on April 1 this year. It will be fascinating to see AJ and his tactics for the fight now he has had a longer period with Derrick James. His Finnish opponent comes in as a late replacement following a third-round TKO victory over Mika Mielonen on August 5. Despite the late replacement, AJ will be under pressure to put on a show against Helenius, with all the negativity surrounding the card after Whyte’s removal from the event.
Can James get AJ focused despite all the upheaval in the build-up? Or can Helenius cause an Andy Ruiz-like shock and stun the boxing world? Check out our recap from the Joshua vs. Helenius press conference.
