On Saturday, at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff, Dillian Whyte can take another step towards a world heavyweight title fight.

Whyte will be taking on Robert Helenius for the WBC silver-heavyweight title, a belt that should, for the winner, open up a route that will lead to a showdown with Deontay Wilder.

For Whyte it is another huge test of his ability. Having been knocked out by Anthony Joshua, the Brixton fighter rebuilt his reputation. However, when he was matched against Dereck Chisora and given the decision, on points, many felt that Chisora had been robbed.

On Saturday, Whyte takes on Robert Helenius, a fighter recognised as a big-puncher, but somebody who doesn?t, perhaps, hit quite as hard as he used to since under-taking a shoulder operation back in 2011, ironically in a fight against Dereck Chisora.

But Helenius is coming to the UK convinced he will beat Whyte and will become a world heavyweight champion with the boxer who was born in Sweden but who boxes out of Finland, remarking,

?It will be a tough fight for Dillian more than it will be for me, and it will be a loss on his record, that?s it. I hope he stands and fights with me and doesn?t run, as his reputation suggests.

?I will definitely become word heavyweight champion. I have no doubts.?

Can Whyte get past Helenius to take another step towards a showdown with the unbeaten slugger Deontay Wilder?

Here at Vital Boxing we reckon he?ll rise to the occasion and take the verdict.
