Robert Helenius is a heavyweight boxer who has previously held multiple regional titles. However, ‘The Nordic Nightmare’ has never held a belt in any of the major bodies of boxing. So for him to say that Tyson Fury is an easy fight because of his fight style, is pretty interesting.
He did just that in a conversation with SkySports. The Finnish pugilist said, “Of course, I feel I would beat Fury. He looked great against Deontay Wilder, but he would find a much less favourable style against me. I would knock Fury out. He is an easier style for me than Usyk for sure.”

Tyson Fury, who last fought in October 2021, put up one of the best performances of his career to end one of the best trilogies in heavyweight history. ‘The Gypsy King’ went toe-to-toe with one of the hardest, if not the hardest puncher in the division.
Despite Wilder knocking Fury down twice, he came back strong to produce an 11th round TKO of ‘The Bronze Bomber’. Fury’s performance helped him retain his WBC belt and look forward to bigger fights.
Tyson Fury is currently interested in a crossover event with a UFC champion.
