Matchroom Boxing has officially announced the date and opponent for Dillian Whyte.

‘The Body Snatcher’ will face ‘The Nordic Nightmare’ from Finland, Robert Helenius for the WBC Silver Heavyweight title in Cardiff on October 28th.

“It’s been a very frustrating few months trying to get someone to fight me. I thank Robert for stepping up and in two weeks’ time we will fight for the WBC Silver title in Cardiff. I love to fight and I’m looking forward to being back in the ring, getting the victory and moving on to challenge for the World Heavyweight title,” said Whyte in a press release.

Helenius was scheduled to fight Derek Chisora earlier in May this year but the fight never happened. The Finn is pleased to get another opportunity on a big stage this year.
