Leaner, Meaner Wilder Could be a Problem

Not many boxers can come back after suffering not one but two straight beat-downs. That is what Wilder is looking to do as he contemplated retirement, but he is instead poised to box Helenius. Wilder also stated that he will be coming in a bit lighter than he did against Tyson Fury. A leaner Wilder should be a more dangerous boxer.

Wilder has had issues gassing in the past. That’s what cost him against Fury. But coming into this fight in a fitter condition, Wilder should be able to move around more freely while preserving himself. He can ill-afford to tire, especially against a power puncher like Helenius.

The question will be if Wilder can sustain the same punching power for which he is famous. While Wilder may lose a bit of “oomph” to his punches, he is still a heavyweight weighing over 220 pounds. He may not dust Helenius with one punch. But over 12 rounds, he’ll do enough damage to put away his challenger, as expected in the sportsbook.

Helenius Looks to Put Wilder Through Nightmare

Helenius will look to live up to his moniker by testing how much fighting spirit is left in Wilder. The Nordic Nightmare, like Wilder, is a finisher. His knockout-to-win ratio may not be as eye-popping as Wilder’s, but he’s knocked out the likes of Adam Kownacki (twice) and Lamon Brewster. He also beat Derek Chisora, albeit via a controversial decision.

Helenius was supposed to be boxing’s next big thing. But he’s stumbled repeatedly, though he’s in his biggest fight against the former WBC champion. The Finn, like Wilder, also fights with a high guard. This can prove problematic against Wilder as the American has the style to expose him.

However, Helenius has every bit of a “puncher’s chance,” especially since Wilder is coming in lighter. At 6-foot-6, Helenius will be just as big as Wilder. They shared the same card last year and will now share the same ring.

Wilder vs Helenius Head-to-Head

Wilder and Helenius are similarly sized as heavyweights – both tall and lanky. The former will have a four-inch reach advantage and is two years younger. Helenius weighed in at 246 pounds against Adam Kownacki.

Wilder vs Helenius Prediction

Don’t blink with this fight. We have two power punchers with suspect defenses going against each other. Both Wilder and Helenius fight with a high guard that can get penetrated by the right combinations. They’ve been starched before and only know how to win by marching forward and outslugging the other boxer.

In a sense, these boxers have many similarities. But Wilder is heavily favored because he should be faster and hits a tad bit harder. In a heavyweight fight, that may be all he needs. It’s worth betting online on Wilder, though the most worthwhile play here is to take a stab at the under as this one could end early.
