Robert Helenius vs Sherman Williams set for November 10

Boris Streubel

Robert Helenius will return to the ring on November 10 against Sherman Williams.

Robert Helenius will face Sherman Williams on November 10 in Helsinki, marking the return of the "Nordic Nightmare" after nearly a year out of the ring.

Helenius (17-0, 11 KO) was last seen struggling badly to a controversial decision win over Dereck Chisora in December 2011, and says he's anxious to get back in action:

"This will be an exciting fight. Williams has proven his class in a lot of battles, he is strong and rugged, but he will not leave Finland victorious. I am taller, I am stronger and I am better. The Tank will crash in Helsinki on November 10!"

Williams (35-11-2, 19 KO) is a 40-year-old veteran from the Bahamas, now living in Florida, who has never reached major heights in the sport, but is tough and is a fine choice to get Helenius back in the ring. Helenius, if he's healthy, should win handily, but Williams says he's confident he can pull off the upset:

"He's 6' 6", 6' 7" but guys that size rarely stand-up straight. I'm sure I can reach him. I've been in the ring with big guys before like Jameel McCline, who I fight in his hometown at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City. I beat him from pillar-to-post but only got a draw. I've sparred with Wladimir and Vitali and reached them.

"I looked at Helenius' record and he's beaten some name fighters, but I think he padded his record by beating them long after their primes. Helenius is going to be eating a lot of 'Conch' on November 10th."

Williams last fought on June 28 in China, beating Chauncy Welliver by split decision. Before that, he was looking strong against Evander Holyfield over three rounds in January 2011, before it was stopped and ruled a no-contest.
