Two-time heavyweight champion, Anthony Joshua, has revealed what he told Dillian Whyte’s late replacement, Robert Helenius, after knocking the latter out with a brutal finish at London’s O2 Arena on Saturday.

Anthony Joshua was due to fight fellow British heavyweight rival, Whyte in a long-awaited rematch, but ‘The Body Snatcher’ failed a drug test seven days before the bout.

However, Finland’s Helenius stepped in at short notice but was no match for Joshua.

Anthony Joshua controlled the early rounds without dazzling before stopping Helenius in the seventh with a devastating right-hander to the jaw.

Speaking to DAZN after the bout, Anthony Joshua said: “Helenius, I told him to come again.

“I think he can cause people a lot of problems. Big thanks to him for coming in and saving the card.”

Anthony Joshua added, “It is a fickle sport, you’ve got to be real about this industry and not get caught up. I have done my job tonight.”
