Deontay Wilder vs Robert Helenius: Date, UK start time, live stream, TV channel, undercard – here’s what we know so far
DEONTAY WILDER is making his big boxing return against Robert Helenius.
The Bronze Bomber was last in action back in October 2021, losing in the gripping third and final bout of his trilogy against Tyson Fury.
And Wilder says he is going for a FOURTH clash with the Gypsy King after he beats Helenius.
Wilder told Sky Sports: “I think that there’s definitely a chance of a fourth fight again.
“Boxing is a business. Many people call it a sport, but it’s not a sport.
“The heavyweight division is very small. I’m still a big fish in the business, especially here in America. As long as we’re all in the same division and all still currently fighting, why not? It only can lead to that. With all that being said, it’s definitely a possibility.”
