Anthony Joshua vs Robert Helenius: What channel, TV details, how to watch, when is Anthony Joshua next fight
Anthony Joshua will face Robert Helenius this weekend at The O2 in London. Here's everything you need to know ahead of the fight.
Fight fans are gearing up to catch the return of British boxer Anthony Joshua this weekend as he takes on The Nordic Nightmare Robert Helenius at London's 02 Arena.
The Watford born Joshua will take on the giant Finnish boxer this weekend after he stepped up to be the replacement for Dillian Whyte, who pulled out of the scheduled battle following Whyte returning “adverse analytical findings” during a random anti-doping test.
Interestingly, Helenius himself just came out of a fight just last week, where he went toe to toe with Mika Mielonen who he knocked out in the third round last Saturday to claim his 21st knockout win of his career.
Joshua, who praised the Finn for taking the fight at short notice, said he was "laser focused" on the boxing match adding: "I can make steps forward to bigger and better things but the road map has a checkpoint. Saturday night. May the best man win.”
The 6'6 Helenius is looking to "take the opportunity" to try and shock Joshua this weekend and will be hoping to fare better than he did against Deontay Wilder in 2022 when he suffered a quick knockout loss.
