Hughie Fury considering heavyweight clashes with Robert Helenius and Michael Hunter, says promoter Ben Shalom

Hughie Fury looks set to return to the ring against Robert Helenius or Michael Hunter, as promoter Ben Shalom plots a return to world title contention for the heavyweight. Fury was keen to take on Derek Chisora after beating Christian Hammer in October last year, but with that fight failing to materialise, a clash against Helenius or Hunter appears most likely.

Though the WBC previously ordered “The Gypsy King” to face either interim champ Dillian Whyte or unified champion Oleksandr Usyk, Arum claims that neither of them are on the table, as Usyk is due for a rematch with Anthony Joshua and Whyte’s terms were too “greedy.”

Robert Helenius Beats Down Adam Kownacki, Stops Him in Sixth

LAS VEGAS – Robert Helenius proved Saturday night that his first stoppage of Adam Kownacki wasn’t a fluke. The 37-year-old Helenius basically beat up a defenseless Kownacki throughout their rematch, until referee Celestino Ruiz determined that Kownacki shouldn’t continue during the sixth round of their scheduled 12-round heavyweight fight at T-Mobile Arena. Ruiz deducted a point from Kownacki for low blows in the fifth round and halted their one-sided rematch in the sixth round because Kownacki, whose left eye was swollen shut, had taken too much punishment on the Tyson Fury-Deontay Wilder pay-per-view undercard.
