Matchroom has been trying to put this fight together for a while now.
It was reported that Helenius initially turned down multiple offers from Eddie Hearn, but the promoter told exclusively to Boxing Social that he wasn’t done trying even though there was very little time.
“We gave them multiple offers but apparently they want to fight in November or December. Helenius is a fight that we wanted for Dillian. I think Helenius fights a good fight. I’d still like to try and make that fight but we are running out of time,” said Hearn on Wednesday at the Groves-Cox press conference.
