The Nordic Nightmare, Robert Helenius (19-0), returns to action as previously reported March 21 in Tallinn (Estonia) and the opponent is now announced. It will be Ukrainan veteran Alexey Mazikin (18-12-2) in the opposite corner. Mazikin was a very good amateur and then turned pro with Spotlight Boxing in Hamburg and later joined Arena Box Promotion. But over the years Mazikin have gone downhill and what once was possible contender is now at best a decent journeyman.
