Former WBC heavyweight world champion Deontay “The Bronze Bomber” Wilder (42-2-1, 41 KOs) returns to the ring against top contender Robert Helenius (30-3, 19 KOs) in the main event of a FOX Sports pay-per-view from Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York on Saturday, October 15.
The co-main event features former IBF super middleweight champion Caleb Plant (21-1, 12 KOs) and former two-time WBC champion Anthony Dirrell (34-2, 25 KOs) going head to head in a 12-round 168 lbs contest.
Wilder is the scariest puncher in boxing, and the heavyweight division is where he reigned supreme until Tyson Fury came along. Wilder who contemplated retirement after his third bout with Fury said boxing called him back and he is back to excite the fans with his devastating punching power.
Helenius is a longtime heavyweight contender, and this is his time to become a household name, if he can upset Wilder it could lead him to a possible showdown with Tyson Fury.
