Boxing fans enjoy heavyweights for one reason. Deontay Wilder has 42 wins, after all, and 41 of those are by knockout. Also, Wilder turns 37 on October 22nd. What better way to celebrate than by defeating Robert Helenius on Saturday night? Advancing in the WBC Heavyweight Eliminator would be a little early birthday present.
There exists an interesting peace with Wilder now that has not been present for some time. He has trained heavily for this fight. The last time “The Bronze Bomber” stepped in the ring was a year ago. In that fight versus Tyson Fury, Wilder looked game early but tired lately as he lost via an 11th-round TKO. The Alabama native said he felt heavy after that fight. His goal for this fight was to end up in the 220’s. Wilder does look in much better shape.
This fight has been a long time in the making for Wilder. Again, he is not burdened by having to fight for the title or Tyson Fury. There are some weird issues and allegations with Fury and a few British fighters. Aside from that, Wilder has that right hand, as seen above, that makes his fights worth the price of admission. Below are the heavyweight boxing bets as Wilder enters the “sunset part of his boxing career”.
The heavyweight division is still a division that is loaded with tons and tons of intrigue. However, little of that bothers a fighter like Deontay Wilder. Again, this fighter was the WBC Heavyweight Champion for five years (7-0-1 before losing the title to Fury in 2020). He has little to prove. For the soon-to-be 37-year-old fighter, this bout is about showing he is back. Yes, Wilder, as he is still a huge heavyweight boxing bets favorite.
Now, this is the type of fight which should be advantageous to Wilder. The problem is that there is always this chance that Robert Helenius could end the fight too. Many still believe that Wilder could win the WBC Heavyweight Title once more. It was not surprising to anyone. Honestly, counting out Wilder is never a good idea. After all, Wilder has a four-inch reach advantage. That 83-inch reach and large wingspan catch fighters off-guard.
Deontay Wilder thinks if he wins this fight on Saturday that his next bout is with Oleksandr Usyk. Does “The Bronze Bomber” need to come out swinging? You bet he does! Wilder transformed his body which shocked quite a few pundits and followers alike. There was some concern, no doubt about it.
Deontay Wilder indeed, has stayed a heavy favorite. Bettors do not consider his age a detriment or his slight lack of activity. He has fought once every 7.6 months and is in the ring for the first time in a year. Again, the former WBC Heavyweight Champion’s intense training was extensive.
Therefore, the 6-foot-7 Wilder must use his reach and wingspan to stick, move a little, then set up that right hand. Again, everyone remembers the count when the heavyweight knocked down Tyson Fury in fight number three. It seemed Fury was down for more than ten seconds. We may never know if it truly was a “long count”. Wilder knows now that staying in shape and keeping that stamina is essential to winning.
Wilder wants to get in the ring and take care of business already. Some pundits believe a title shot is near, Wilder does, and fans are clamoring for that. This is why Wilder is set up to knock out Helenius in Brooklyn. Take the prop of Under 7.5 rounds at +100. This could be a short fight. The moneyline is safer at -700 but…
With the big fight nearing on Saturday, the prime online Vegas boxing odds are out, offering the Nordic fighter as a large underdog. Robert Helenius does enjoy Brooklyn. This is far, far more for him more important than any title shot. This is more of “his title fight” to set up something huge for 2023. Could he catch Wilder early in this fight? That may be possible. However, there are some concerns.
Robert Helenius may be just about 6-foot-7 but only has a 79 inch reach. That is one problem. Though the Nordic heavyweight is the WBA Gold Heavyweight title holder, Helenius did get the benefit of a low-blows DQ which turned into a TKO in the second Adam Kownacki bout. The first fight featured the Swedish-Finnish pugilist surprise Kownacki.
As this fight beckons, it is one of those matches with the look of one punch or combination changing everything. If Helenius can take the early shots, he indeed has a punchers’ chance.
The heavyweight boxing bets say take Deontway Wilder on October 15th.
