Robert “The Nordic Nightmare” Helenius is to fight Mateus Roberto “Tsunami” Osorio from Brazil in the historic Estonian city of Narva. The fight will take place on Saturday, 30 November. It’s an intermediate fight for Helenius, who has set his sights on the United States.
Former European champion Robert Helenius on Saturday will be opposed by Brazilian Mateus Roberto Osorio . Helenius and Osorio are competing in Narva, Estonia.
“When I win this fight I have another one coming up in the US. This fight is a stepping stone for my return to America again. Yes, I admit that I had planned for a year that looked very different to the one I’ve had. But I still want a shot at a World Championship fight – so right now my focus is one fight at a time,” says Helenius.
If Helenius wins his fight against the ‘Tsunami’ from Brazil, a significantly tougher fight awaits in the US this winter.
“The promoters liked what they saw last summer and sent us an email after the defeat in Minneapolis to say that they wanted to see Robert in the USA again,” says Robert Helenius’s coach Johan Lindström.
“The upcoming fight in America is nailed on, but we do not know where or against whom. There are a number of different possible opponents and even a re-match against Washington can happen,” continues Lindström.
