Joshua vs Helenius - Fight time and where to watch

Published on: August 8, 2023 (Updated on: April 22, 2024)

Anthony Joshua (AJ) will fight Finnish boxer Robert Helenius (The Nordic Nightmare) on Saturday 12 August, 2023. The fight will take place at the 02 Arena, London, United Kingdom.

Anthony Joshua was slated to fight Dillian Whyte but the fight was cancelled due to adverse analytical findings which resulted from a random anti-doping protocol. As a result, Robert Helenius of Finland, instead of Dillian White, will be fighting Anthony Joshua on Saturday.

Where to watch Joshua vs. Helenius on Saturday 12 August, 2023

Who is likely to win between Joshua and Helenius?

Robert Helenius was defeated last year (15 October, 2022) by Deontay Wilder in a first round KO and this might suggest that Helenius is no match for Joshua who is a two-time heavyweight champion. However, the circumstance leading to Joshua vs. Ruiz 1 where Joshua was defeated by Andy Ruiz is quite similar to the one which has resulted in the current bout between Joshua and Helenius.

Recall that Jarrell Miller was originally slated to fight Joshua in 2019 before being disqualified due to positive test for banned substances. While Ruiz was the underdog at the time, Joshua's loss came as a shock to many people. It is thus difficult to predict who would win the Saturday 12th bout. But like Anthony Joshua often says, 'let the best man win'.
