    Dereck Chisora has been confirmed by Finnish newspapers and the boxing media as the opponent of Robert Helenius for the Dec 3 event in Helsinki, Finland.

    This will be for the EBU (European) heavyweight title.

    Also on the card is Alexander Povetkin vs Cedric Boswell for the "world" WBA heavyweight title.

    This doubleheader will be televised in the US by EPIX and in the UK by BoxNation.

    Helenius will KO Chisora in about 8 rounds, IMO.

    An Helenius win should be his last fight until he gets a title fight, he's earned it more than any other heavyweight out there.

    Agreed. I peg Helenius as the only serious threat to the Klitschkos (though I would still pick either brother over him).

    He equals the Klitschkos in size, has a solid chin and solid power. Also, has fought through some trouble against Lyakhovich so he has does not crumble mentally when behind or hurt.

    Chisora will be KO'd and will probably try to pull what Haye did against Wlad so as not to get knocked out.

    Helenius appears to be the top heavyweight challenger, but no, I don't think he's a serious threat to the amazing K brothers. Not yet anyway. No one is. No one ever has been. They are the greatest heavyweights in history. But then Helenius has only had sixteen pro fights. He is actually far ahead of where the K's were at that stage of their careers. Both of them were still fighting "opponents" in their 16th pro fight whereas Helenius is disposing of big names and former champs one after the other and knocking them out cold in the bargain!

    This is a monster card for CF fans. Two BIG White/black match-ups in the heavyweight division. I really want to see this one. Any way besides internet stream to catch this event??

    Epix is a start up movie network that is the equivalent of HBO or Showtime. If you don't want to watch a pirate stream you can always long haul it to Manhattan as it is being shown on a Times Square screen.:becky:

    Epix also has a free trial on their site. I signed up about 6 months ago and still see every fight on their website. Picture and sound quality is usually very good.

    "If you don't want to watch a pirate stream you can always long haul it to Manhattan as it is being shown on a Times Square screen"

    Really? Right out on the street? Showcasing a great young white fighter? Wow what next - the Klitschkos?

    Manhattan is a long haul from here, and I've had my fill of the place - except they've turned the Times Square area into something like Disneyland since I left! What happened to all those "Check it out my man" dudes who used to stand in front of the porno joints? Are they out of work now?

    Oh yeah, Epix, I remember now. I signed up for a free trial to watch Vitali vs. a fat slob negro from Cuba, tho I seem to vaguely recall watching it on a P.S. instead. I just tried signing in again and it let me.

    Oh, they don't want us to mention P.S.'s on here any more, so via PM will be the way.

    Those Negroes sure know from fashion.

    Chisora was beaten by Fury who isn't nearly as good as Helenius. I know styles make fights but I think Helenius should be able to get rid of him like he did with Sam Peter. The way blacks act before fights is sickening. Most of them are nothing more than over grown children.

    Another tall Scandinavian heavyweight is on now: Jarno Rosberg (11-0, age 30) is fighting Argentinian Manuel Alberto Pucheta.

    Helenius and Povetkin will win but Helenius is a much better fighter and would KO Povetkin if they fought.

    Yes. I think Helenius would knock him out if they ever fight.

    Povetkin looking very good. Best of seen of him since 2007-2008 when he beat Byrd and Chambers.

    Boswell was almost stopped late in the 7th round.

    KO for Povetkin.

    Boswell took a lot of shots, then went down hard. He stood up at 10 and then fell back down.

    I hope lots of people were watching on that billboard in Times Square. If there is one sport that disproves the joke of black athletic supremacy it is boxing. Unfortunately, boxing is not a major sport in the U.S. anymore.
