ATG on GFL.TV Exclusive: Helenius speaks on injury, Klitschkos + more

In 2011, undefeated heavyweight contender Robert Helenius 17-0 (11KOs) was being touted as the next big thing in the heavyweight division. Many experts were picking the 28 year old power puncher to succeed Wladimir Klitschko as the next dominant champion.
A fight with Dereck Chisora in December of 2011 halted some of the momentum towards heavyweight supremacy and although Helenius would go on to a points win over Chisora in his homeland of Helsinki, Finland, question marks were raised over the decision.
Helenius offered no excuses for his uninspiring performance, but it was later found out that he fought the fight with a severely injured shoulder, an injury that has kept him out of action for almost a full year.
