One of the most eagerly awaited fights, at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff tonight, is the heavyweight clash between Dillian Whyte and Robert Helenius.

For Whyte it is the perfect opportunity to edge closer towards a WBC world title fight against Deontay Wilder, the unbeaten big-punching American.

In the build up to the fight, there has been a lot of talk of Whyte, if he wins, facing Wilder in February 2018, although the purse Wilder wants is open to discussion.

Whyte has only suffered one defeat in his professional career, back in 2015 he was stopped by Joshua Whyte and ahead of the fight the Brixton fighter has remarked,

‘A lot underestimate me until they are stood there on the night and realise I am better and stronger than they think.

‘We are really having problems getting opponents. When I get past this we can speak about future plans.’

Helenius, with his height and reach advantage, could frustrate Whyte but, here at Vital Boxing we reckon he will prevail and the end could come in the latter rounds for the durable and experienced Helenius.
