Sauerland Event is planning a mega-doubleheader on June 25 featuring WBA interim cruiserweight champion Yoan Pablo Hernandez against WBA cruiser boss Guillermo Jones for the undisputed WBA belt, plus heavyweight Robert Helenius making a quick return following his sensational KO of former world champion Sam Peter.
The WBA is planning a purse bid later this month for the Hernandez-Jones fight, however a deal could be worked out up until the last minute. Helenius will face an opponent to be named.
“We’re currently in discussions with several potential opponents. These are very high-calibre people,” stated Sauerland Sports Director Hagen Doering. “We we announce shortly who will go into the ring against Robert Helenius. We still have a bit of homework to do. Besides the venue, we will announce the ticket information during the coming days.”
