Dillian Whyte Defeats Robert Helenius For The WBC Silver heavyweight Title

Dillian Whyte Wins WBC Heavyweight Silver Title

Dillian Whyte has no doubt recently been looking for a shot at the WBC Heavyweight Title held by Champion Deontay Wilder and Robert Helenius was out there to hinder that on Saturday giving why problems in the early rounds, but the Brit was not going to his early slum affect the bigger picture.

Whyte (22-1, 16 KOs) had almost lost it in the second round, getting buzzed by Helenius but bounced back to dominate the 6-feet-6, 248½-Pound tired (25-2, 16 KOs), though didn't really look to have hurt Helenius in anyway through out the twelve rounds.

Going on to win the Bout via unanimous decision and seemed content with winning by big margins on all three scorecards (119-109, 119-109, 118-110), with his best shot coming in the fifth round when Helenius looked to have gassed out.

The fight looked all boring for two fighters, who came in the back of two and three wins respectively, Whyte’s second straight since his taxing, split-decision defeat of Dereck Chisora on December 10 in Manchester, England. Before Saturday night, Finland’s Helenius had won three fights in a row after France’s Johann Duhaupas knocked him out in the sixth round of their April 2016.

The WBC number three will now wait for WBC Heavyweight Champion Deontay Wilder to make his defense against former champion Bermane Stiverne (25-2-1, 21 KOs) on November 4 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.
