Helenius-Chisora presser

Dereck Chisora (15-1, 9 KOs) continued his provocation of WBA / WBO Intercontinental Heavyweight Champion Robert Helenius (16-0, 11 KOs) today at the final press conference at the Hartwall Areena in Helsinki, Finland. The two 27-year-old contenders will clash for the vacant European Heavyweight Title on Saturday. “They say Helenius is a great hero in Finland but let me be honest they don´t have many heroes in Finland,” Chisora stated. “Where I come from we have Wayne Rooney, John Terry and Andy Murray, we have darts, we have snooker, where I come from everybody wants to be a hero. I am competing with many athletes and me taking your unbeaten record will be the best thing I have ever done for my career. I will knock you out.”

Chisora has promised a “hot evening” on Saturday night, predicting once again to “make love to him in the ring.” Helenius remained ice-cool. “That is disturbing, what is wrong with you? You talk too much. I don´t care what you say or plan to do. I will be the new European champion on Saturday night.” And his coach Ulli Wegner added: “Robert has fists of steel and Chisora will find out what that means on Saturday night. We have worked on Robert´s punching power and he has gotten even stronger.”

Meanwhile, Hall of Fame Promoter Wilfried Sauerland does not expect Chisora to be around for the post-fight press conference. “Chisora has a big mouth. Talk is cheap. I am not sure whether he will show up for the post-fight press conference. Robert has knocked out three former world champions and two of them were unable to face the press afterwards. We will find out about Chisora. I know for sure that Robert is going to win on Saturday night.”
