Anthony Joshua, the two-time heavyweight champion, has talked revealed what he told Robert Helenius after knocking him out with a brutal finish at London’s O2 Arena on Saturday.
Joshua was due to fight fellow British heavyweight rival, Whyte in a long-awaited rematch but ‘The Body Snatcher’ failed a drug test seven days before the bout.
However, Finland’s Helenius stepped in at short notice but was no match for Joshua.
Joshua controlled the early rounds without dazzling before stopping Helenius in the seventh with a devastating right-hander to the jaw.
Speaking to DAZN after the bout, Joshua said: “Helenius, I told him to come again.
“I think he can cause people a lot of problems. Big thanks to him for coming in and saving the card.”
He added, “It is a fickle sport, you’ve got to be real about this industry and not get caught up. I have done my job tonight.”
