An Absolute Nightmare

The stage was set. By all accounts the WBA Heavyweight eliminator against Robert Helenius was just a formality for Adam Kownacki, on the way to a potential showdown with former Heavyweight Champion Andy Ruiz Jr.

What we got instead was the first major candidate for upset of the year as 🇸🇪🇫🇮Robert “The Nordic Nightmare” Helenius (30-3-0, 19KO) pummeled the Polish born Brooklyn based 🇵🇱Adam “Babyface” Kownacki (20-1-0, 15KO) in front of stunned fans draped in red and white Polish gear at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.20200308_110052

Helenius, a huge underdog at +1400, dropped Kownacki in the 4th round, and when the hometown favorite rose on uneasy legs, closed with a flurry that forced Referee David Fields to step in and stop the action.
