Persson’s Euro News
By Per-Ake Persson
The Nordic Nightmare, heavyweight Robert Helenius, and IBF cruiser champ Yoan Pablo Hernandez joined manager Wilfried Sauerland on a trip to the Hall of Fame weekend in Canastota and the two fighters continued to Miami for ten days of continued rehab training.
Helenius is now almost back in full training after the serious shoulder injury he suffered in the fight against Dereck Chisora late last year. No comeback fight have been set yet and Robert told Finnish journalist Juhani Gronberg there´s still concern about overworking the shoulder.
In regards of Hernandez he suffered a broken hand against Steve Cunningham in February and vowed then to be back quickly but is still not medically cleared.
Finnish heavyweight Jarno Rosberg is now in the Wladimir Klitschko camp in Austria, which have created big attention in Finland, especially when it is claimed that Rosberg is doing well in sparring. Jarno is like Klitschko´s opponent July 7, Tony Thompson, a southpaw.
French jr middle Cedric Vitu have been stripped of the EU title - but only after being appointed mandatory challenger for newly crowned EBU champ Sergey Rabchenko.
Vitu´s mandatory challenger was Belgian Jackson Osei Bonsu, who now will face the highest available challenger.
The WBA unification fight at supermiddle between Brian Magee and Karoly Balzsay appears to be off for the time being. Team Magee, who won the purse bids, had planned to stage the fight July 7 in Copenhagen but Universum and Balzsay have as of yet not returned a signed contract. Word out of Hungary is that the WBA regular champ never went into serious training as he is still recuperating from the very tough defence against Dimitri Sartison April 21.
Last word isn´t said yet but don´t be surprised if the WBA strip Balzsay of the title and crowns, Magee, currently interim ruler, regular champ. With this title Team Magee can get several lucrative offers, particularly from Denmark where Brian have stopped both Mads Larsen and Rudy Markussen - so why not a third showdown there and against the Viking Warrior, Mikkel Kessler, himself?
