Video: Deontay Wilder brutally knocks out Robert Helenius with unbelievable right hook


Deontay Wilder didn’t need long to get back in the win column.

Robert Helenius was knocked out by Wilder in Brooklyn’s Barclays Center on Saturday. He had been fighting for his life with an aggressive right hand.

Wilder was slow to get started, moving on the outside and Helenius following him around in the ring. Stalking Wilder ended up being a terrible idea, though.

With the round nearly at an end, Helenius got Wilder backed into the corner and tried to seize the moment, but Wilder fired a short right hand that caught Helenius clean and put him out cold, where he stayed for several minutes before finally leaving the ring under his own power.

The win moved Wilder to 43-2-1 in his career and was his first win in almost three years, as “The Bronze Bomber” lost a pair of bouts to Tyson Fury in 2020 and 2021. Wilder encouraged everyone to love one another after the fight and suggested that he fight Oleksandr Usyk, or Andy Ruiz, for his next opponent.
