Robert Helenius vs. Dereck Chisora
Was Helenius having an off night? Or was he awarded the proverbial hometown decision?

Saturday night at the Hartwell Arena in Helsinki, Finland, Robert Helenius (11-0) met Dereck Chisora (15-1) in a clash of future heavyweight contenders. Big things are expected of big Helenius, aka The Nordic Nighmare, but he looked soft and squeaked out a split decision victory. Was Helenius having an off night against Chisora? Was he awarded a hometown decision? Or has he been overhyped?

    mdmd I wonder what fight you were watching because it certainly could not have been Helenius vs. Chisora!  Maybe you need to watch that fight again!  It seems you favor Helenius but I like both fighters and whosoever wins I’m for him.  Don’t take a fight from a man just because you favor him; it’s not fair to the other fighter.  Be fair!!!

    Chisora didn’t get anything done though Helenius hurt his right hand at the fist round. And Helenius blocked almost every hit made by Chisora. Chisora couldn’t hurt Helenius at all. Chisora was hurt in the first round and even he admitted that.
    Without the injury Helenius would be knocked down Chisora on the second round. Every warning what ref gave to Chisora was right. He was pushing with his head all the time. Can’t wait for the rematch. Chisora will go down.

    People know that Chisora beat Helenius in Saturday night’s heavy-weight fight!  Helenius got clobbered by Chisora.  It’s a shame that the Judges took that fight away from Chisora.  The Boxing Commission should look at those Judges when they makes decisions like such as was made Saturday night.  It’s just not fair for them to do the that.  If the Judges like a certain fighter it is certain that he will win.  Also, the Ref kept giving Chisora warnings when Helenius didn’t get a one.  What’s up with that?!  I think the Commissioner needs to fire some of those Judges to make the others stand up and take notice.  If they have gotten too old to judge a fight, then they should retire.  Let someone that is fair do the judging.  What happened Saturday night was a disgrace to the Judges; they need a strong talking to or fired!
