This weekend we are set to see Daniel Jacobs face Luis Arias at the Nassau Coliseum in a big middleweight bout. Stay tuned for a post on the Jacobs vs Arias bout. On the undercard, we have some decent fights including Conor Benn’s debut stateside and a heavyweight clash between Mariusz Wach vs Jarrell Miller.
Dillian Whyte vs Robert Helenius… Will it be a good scrap? Dillian Whyte is most known for being rival of world champ AJ. He was Joshua’s first tough test and was seen to wobble Joshua in round two of their fight. Robert Helenius is an established heavyweight, most notoriously scoring a controversial split decision victory over Dereck Chisora. Helenius is a solid heavyweight and could be a tough test for the Briton. Whyte is a potential world title contender and can take some heavy shots, taking Joshua 7 rounds and taking Chisora the distance.
This Saturday Anthony Joshua fights Carlos Takam in Cardiff, Wales. Joshua is set to defend his IBF and WBA belts (along with his IBO title which isn’t a real world title *cough* *cough* Chris Eubank).
