Anthony Joshua vs. Robert Helenious Betting Odds and Free Pick

We are taking a trip to Greenwich, London, as we take a seat at the O2 Arena for an exciting clash on an 8 boxing bouts event.

The headliner match will be between Anthony Joshua and Robert Helenious, who are now facing each other as Dillian Whyte failed a pre-fight drug test and had to withdraw from the clash.

We have Anthony Joshua coming into the clash with a full camp, and looking to get another win into his resume, against a strong and experienced Robert Helenious who is taking a chance to make the most out of this opportunity.

This fight night has a lot of English fighters who are looking to impress their home crowd as they take a victory, but we expect the audience at the O2 Arena to go completely wild for the Headliner home representative Anthony Joshua as he faces the Finland Native.

Why Bet on Anthony Joshua

A 2012 Olympic gold medalist, Joshua beat Charles Martin in 2016 for the IBF heavyweight title. It was his first taste of world title gold but not his last. “AJ” beat Wladimir Klitschko for the vacant WBA belt and Joseph Parker for the WBO title.

The 33-year-old boxer-puncher has gone 3-2 in his last five contests, losing and then regaining championship status in two bouts against Andy Ruiz Jr. before being dethroned by Oleksandr Usyk.

Joshua rebounded with a points win over Jermaine Franklin in April and must now get past Helenius to keep his big-fight plans intact.

Why Bet on Robert Helenious?

Thanks to a failed VADA test submitted by Whyte, he is out and Finnish veteran Robert Helenius is the replacement. Helenius has a respectable record of 32-4 (21 KOs), but each time he’s stepped up in class, he’s been found lacking, and three of his four losses were by knockout.

Johann Duhaupas stopped him in six, Erkan Teper took him out in eight, and Deontay Wilder popped his balloon in one.

If Helenius were to upset the apple cart on Saturday, then it would be one of the biggest upsets in heavyweight history.

Final Betting Analysis – Anthony Joshua vs. Robert Helenious

Helenius had a full training camp for Wilder, whereas the 39-year-old only has days to prepare for this one. Joshua has been cautious of late, but he’ll be looking to get things over quickly and put this whole debacle behind him.

Providing all is well with the world, this fight is over before it even begins. Joshua is younger, fresher, quicker, stronger, and he’s a far better fighter. Expect AJ to let go with some big bombs and test the late replacement’s chin and ambition very early.

A fun bet would be a second-round finish, but we are simply backing Anthony Joshua to win this clash. 

Go for a victory for the English man at -2000. If you bet $100 at such odds, you could get $5 for a total payout of $105.
