Is Robert Helenius (18-0, 11 KOs) knows he will have to be at his very best when he faces Britain’s Michael Sprott at the GETEC-Arena in Magdeburg, Germany on March 23.
Helenius takes on Sprott (37-19, 17 KOs) in only his second fight after a lengthy spell on the sidelines due to an injury.
However, Helenius will certainly have to be in great shape to fend off the challenge of the very experienced Sprott. The Reading, Berkshire born fighter proved his class during his win over Helenius´ Team Sauerland stable mate Edmund Gerber, who at the time was the IBF´s number five ranked boxer. Therefore Helenius knows that it won’t be a walk in the park on March 23.
“I was present in Nuremberg when he beat Gerber,” said Helenius. “Sprott is technically gifted, so I will have to make use of my height and reach advantage. My jab could make the difference.”
