Joshua and Helenius ready in London

Anthony Joshua and Robert Helenius met the weigh-in for their heavyweight bout that will take place at the O2 Arena in Greenwich, London.

Joshua marked 250 pounds, while Helenius stopped the scales at 249.25 pounds and both are ready for their showdown in the English capital.

Former world champion Anthony Joshua is on the mend after suffering two consecutive losses to Oleksandr Usyk between 2021 and 2022. He came back to defeat Jermaine Franklin in April and will now make another fight against the veteran Helenius.

For his part, the native of Sweden with Finnish nationality, arrived at the last minute to this fight but with all the motivation in the world to give the surprise. He knows that this is an opportunity that doesn’t come along every day and he wants to take advantage of it against an opponent as renowned as the Briton.

Joshua has a record of 25 wins, 3 losses and 22 knockouts, while Helenius has 32 wins, 4 losses and 21 knockouts.
