Helenius vs Sauerland
By Per-Ake Persson
At a press conference today in Borgaa (Finland) Kalle Helenius, father and trainer of Robert "Nordic Nightmare" Helenius, stated he will on Monday report Sauerland Event to the police (!) for risking his son’s health and mistreating his career.

It was also claimed at the press conference that Sauerland insist on existing contracts and it also appears that the ongoing negotiations about a co-promotion deal with Helenius’ new yet to be named promoters have broken down.
The background is the fight against Dereck Chisora two years ago in Helsinki on a Sauerland / P 3 Boxing co-promotion. Robert had apparently had problems with his right hand and shoulder already in training and suffered serious injuries in the fight to both the hand and the shoulder - problems that caused long layoffs and in the two figthts Helenius have had since then his once explosive right have been missing. This fall Robert and his family returned to Finland and the contractual dispute began.
Chris Meyer states that there is an existing contract for two more years with an extension for the time off due to injuries and also says there was a deal for a fight in Helsinki in March of 2014 that is now off but also states they can offer Robert fights in Germany on ARD.
"We have not done anything illegal or even wrong in any sense" writes Meyer in a mail.
