Anthony Joshua: Glory beckons in clash with Helenius


Anthony Joshua is getting ready for a possible second victory in a row tonight. He will fight Robert Helenius at The O2 arena in London today, Saturday, August 12, 2023.

At first, Joshua was supposed to have a rematch with Dillian Whyte, almost eight years after their first fight. But Whyte couldn’t be part of the event because he failed a drug test.

After a few days of uncertainty about Joshua’s opponent, Robert Helenius agreed to step in. This is Helenius’s second fight in just one week.
