‘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.
