Helenius returns Aug 29!

The “Nordic Nightmare” Robert Helenius (8-0, 4 KOs) will return to the ring on August 29 when he takes on Serdar Uysal (9-7, 4 KOs) on the undercard of the WBO cruiserweight title fight between Victor Emilio Ramirez and Marco “Captain” Huck. The Scandinavian heavyweight hopeful comes off a spectacular win in Helsinki where he knocked out experienced Scott Gammer in May. “Everything worked to perfection that night,” Helenius said. “Beating a strong opponent like Gammer at such an early stage of my career has given me an additional boost. On August 29 I will continue where I left it.”

Helenius was originally scheduled to box on Team Sauerland’s first ever fight night in Denmark on September 12. However, with his fiancée Sandra expecting to give birth to the couple’s second child, Helenius said it was impossible to find the right focus. “I might be a nightmare in the ring, but outside the ring, I am just a normal family guy and a dad,” he stated. “I would have loved to fight in Herning on the Kessler-Perdomo card but of course I have to support my wife. I could not have focused 100 percent on boxing.”

Helenius’ preparation for the fight at the Gerry Weber Stadion has been going well despite some late-night shifts. “Our first daughter Chillie is 18 months old and she does not always sleep the whole night. Sandra needs to rest, so I have to look after Chillie at nights. It took me a while to get used to getting less sleep than normal but it does not hurt my performance in practice. Everything is going fine. I have worked hard on my conditioning in the las t couple of months and I am pleased with the progress. It has been 15 months since I turned professional and I am very happy with my development. I want to improve with every fight and I am sure I will beat Uysal in Halle.”
