Former heavyweight contender Robert Helenius (26-2, 16 KOs) will be fighting an eight round rematch against 31-year-old journeyman Yury Bykhautsou (10-16-3, 5 KOs) on August 11 at the Opera Stage in Olavinlinna, in Savonlinna, Finland.
At Savonlinna, Finland:
- Edis Tatli vs. Frank Urquiaga, 12 rounds, for Tatli’s European lightweight title
- Robert Helenius vs. Yury Bykhautsou, rematch, 8 rounds, heavyweights
In a big surprise, the 34-year-old Helenius barely squeaked by Bykhautsou in defeating him by an 8 round split decision last March in Estonia. This was supposed to have been an easy fight for Helenius, but it turned out to be a much harder one than expected.
Helenius is taking his career backwards to face Bykhautsou a second time seemingly to try and improve on the performance from the first fight.
