Anthony Joshua, the two-time heavyweight champion, shared what he said to Robert Helenius, the late substitute for Dillian Whyte, after knocking him out at London’s O2 Arena on Saturday.
Originally set to face British rival Whyte in a rematch, Joshua’s plans changed when Whyte failed a drug test a week before the fight. Finland’s Helenius stepped in at the last minute, but he couldn’t match Joshua’s prowess.
In the match, Joshua controlled the early rounds and finished off Helenius in the seventh round with a powerful right punch to the jaw.
Speaking with DAZN post-fight, Joshua commented, “Helenius, I told him to come again.“I think he can cause people a lot of problems. Big thanks to him for coming in and saving the card.
“It is a fickle sport, you’ve got to be real about this industry and not get caught up. I have done my job tonight.” he added.
