Anthony Joshua and Robert Helenius hop into the ring at the O2 Arena in a hastily arranged showdown after AJ's showdown with Dillian Whyte was scrapped.


Whyte returned "an adverse finding" from a doping test at the weekend, leading to the cancellation of their rematch, but Helenius has stepped into the void to save the card and hopefully put on a big display.

AJ's last outing saw him defeat Jermaine Franklin at this same venue, though the underwhelming circumstances of the victory did little to boost his ailing stock.

Remarkably, Helenius last fought on Saturday against fellow Finnish boxer Mika Mielonen. He boasts a solid record across Europe, but has suffered defeats at the hands of Whyte, Gerald Washington and, in his most recent fight before last weekend, Deontay Wilder.

British boxing fans will be keen to see whether AJ in particular can restore some pride to a record that has taken a bruising in recent years. He will hope his two defeats to Oleksandr Usyk won't be his last world title showdowns, though he is running out of time to reverse the decline.
