Deontay Wilder will reportedly face Robert Helenius on October 15 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York on FOX Sports PPV. Wilder has been out of action since his stoppage loss to Tyson Fury in the third fight back in October of last year.

According to reports from Boxing Scene, a deal to stage the contest hasn’t been completed as of Wednesday but is close to being finalised.
