Robert Helenius (13-0, 8 KOs) has promised his Finnish fans a spectacular KO victory over Attila Levin (34-3, 27 KOs) when they clash for Scandinavian heavyweight supremacy at Helsinki´s Hartwall Areena on November 27. Seven of Helenius´ last eight opponents did not last until the final bell, including former WBO Heavyweight Champion Lamon Brewster and EU Heavyweight Title Challenger Gregory Tony. Next in line to taste Helenius´ feared punching power is Levin. “I will make sure the first defence of my EU Heavyweight Title will be one to remember,” Helenius said. “Levin is a tough guy with a lot of experience, but my goal is to be the best – the best heavyweight in Finland, in Scandinavia and ultimately the best heavyweight in the world. A KO victory over an accomplished fighter like Levin will not only make me the number one in Scandinavia but also further raise my international profile.”
Helenius has set his sights to become an international superstar. Millions of German fans saw his victory over Tony on German public TV giant ARD back in August. “Whether in Germany, Finland, Scandinavia or America – the boxing fans love to see fighters with a big punch. As my record indicates – I have knocked out seven of my last eight opponents – I have a lot of power and I will make sure Levin will get a taste of it on November 27. I want to please my home fans in Helsinki and that is why I will knock Levin out.”
