How Anthony Joshua Knocked Out Helenius In Heavyweight Bout With Right Hand Punch

Afimag.com –

The former world champion, Anthony Joshua, has knocked out Robert Helenius in a heavyweight bout on August 12, 2023.

The Nigerian boxer needed seven rounds to stop stand-in opponent Robert Helenius in the seventh round of their heavyweight bout.

Helenius was merely called up for the fight in Finland last weekend after Dillian Whyte was ruled out of the game over what could be described as all-British clash championed by adverse analytical findings in a doping test.

Recall that Helenius, who newly clocked 39, appeared in the ring a record of 32 victories and four losses from his 36 professional bouts.

His first experience at knocked out in the first round a fight against Deontay Wilder in October.

He, however, circumvented a repeat of such humiliating condition on August 12, although, with Joshua making a cautious start, boos rang out from a capacity crowd at London’s O2 Arena during the third round.

Joshua tactically disembarked with a left hook and then hit Helenius with a right to the face later in the round.

The local hero rocked Helenius again in the fourth before the Finnish veteran caught Joshua with a jab.

But the fifth round left Helenius with a bloodied nose and although Joshua made him stumble with a left uppercut, he survived and got through an uneventful sixth round.

Joshua did give his fans what they came to see when he knocked out Helenius with a powerful right-hand punch in the seventh.
