Dillian “The Body Snatcher” Whyte (22-1, 16 KOs) won a dull pedestrian 12 round unanimous decision over 33-year-old Robert “Nordic Nightmare” Helenius (25-2, 16 KOs) to snatch the vacant WBC Silver heavyweight title on Saturday night at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff, Wales.
The judges’ scores were 119-109, 119-109 and 118-110. It was a clear win for the 29-year-old Whyte, but not a good one in terms of making a case for him beating or even challenging WBC heavyweight champion Deontay “Bronze Bomber” Wilder next February. Boxing News 24 scored the fight for Whyte by a 119-109 score. In other words, Whyte won the fight by 11 rounds to 1 score.
