Deontay Wilder returns to the ring on Saturday for the first time since his knockout loss to Tyson Fury in their trilogy fight a year ago. He'll face Robert Helenius at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York (Fox PPV, 9 p.m. ET).
Wilder (42-2-1, 41 KOs) possesses a powerful right hand, and he was able to put Fury on the canvas four times during their three epic fights. Wilder also has a good left hook and has shown some improvement with his body punching under new trainer Malik Scott, something that could be key against Helenius.
Helenius (31-3, 20 KOs), is riding a three-fight winning streak and is only slightly shorter -- .5 inches -- than Wilder. His last loss was an eighth-round KO to Gerald Washington in 2019, a fighter who Wilder stopped in five rounds two years before.
Will Wilder land his right hand to end the fight or can Helenius stay away and outbox the power puncher?
