Deontay Wilder and Robert Helenius are officially set for Saturday, with both heavyweights coming in at interesting weights.
The Bronze Bomber" returns to the ring for the first time in over a year.
Deontay Wilder wasn't sure if he'd ever return to the ring after losing to Tyson Fury for the second consecutive time via stoppage in October 2021. Admittedly, Wilder said he was 85 percent out the door.
But a May ceremony in his honor changed Wilder's tune. Now, the former WBC heavyweight champion is back and returns on Saturday to take on fellow contender Robert Helenius from the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y.
“It’s been a long journey for me," Wilder said when the fight was announced. "I thought so many times about whether I should stay out of the business or come back.
"Once I got my statue in my hometown and saw so many people arrive and celebrate with me and my family, to see all the emotions, grown men crying in front of their children and saying he is a real true king, made me feel like my job is not done. So, here I am once again, looking forward to returning to the ring."
