I Got To Raise Hell – Anthony Joshua Speaks On Fight With Robert Helenius



A fired-up Anthony Joshua exchanged words with opponent Robert Helenius during a long, intense stare-down as the heavyweights weighed in for Saturday’s bout at London’s O2 Arena.

Briton Joshua, 33, weighed 17st 12lbs, a pound heavier than Helenius.

The 39-year-old Finn took the fight at a week’s notice after Dillian Whyte failed a voluntary drugs test.

“You got a problem with me?” Joshua asked Helenius.

In a swift retort, Helenius told Joshua: “I don’t got a problem with you.”

Having just weighed in at Westfield London shopping centre on Friday, Joshua told his opponent: “We’re going to fight now or we’re going to fight tomorrow. Either way we’re going to fight.”

He instructed Helenius to “stop acting up”, adding: “Let’s stay calm, let’s stay cool.”

The exchange was a stark contrast to Wednesday’s respectful news conference, where both men shared pleasantries and shook hands.
