Deontay Wilder gives five-word response to Oleksandr Usyk attending Robert Helenius fight | Boxing | Sport
But having been out of the ring for over a year, ‘The Bronze Bomber’ will return on October 15 when he faces Finland’s Robert Helenius at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center. Helenius, 38, also hasn’t fought since last October, overpowering Poland’s Adam Kownack on the Fury v Wilder undercard.
Usyk meanwhile, has returned to his homeland, citing the need to let injuries heal before he fights again in 2023. But he is due to fly out to America to see if Wilder can reignite his winning streak, with his last two clashes with Fury representing the only defeats of his 45 pro-fight career.
I heard Usyk is gonna be there,” Wilder said to FightHype.com. “I’m looking forward to seeing him. It’s gonna be a great fight, it’s gonna be a great card overall.” And he then teased a future bout with ‘The Cat’ via a blunt five-word message: “I hope he takes notes.”
