Former WBC heavyweight world champion and boxing superstar Deontay “The Bronze Bomber” Wilder makes his much-anticipated return to the ring to face top-rated heavyweight Robert “The Nordic Nightmare” Helenius this weekend.
Wilder has been missing in action for over a year since he ended his trilogy with Tyson Fury with two consecutive losses. He contemplated retirement for some time, but he decided to step back into the ring after being presented with a statue in his hometown and seeing what his achievements mean to many people. Now, he’ll be looking to get closer to the title he held for five years in this PBC WBC title eliminator against Swedish-born Finn Robert Helenius.
Wilder vs Helenius is packaged as a PPV, and other noteworthy fights include Caleb Plant vs. Anthony Dirrell and Frank Sanchez vs. Carlos Negron.
Main Event Preview
Deontonay Wilder (42-2-1, 41 KOs)
Wilder is The Ring’s No. 2-rated heavyweight contender, behind Ring/IBF/WBA/WBO world champion Oleksandr Usyk. The American is known for his exceptional punching power, having knocked out 41 of the 45 opponents he has faced. He held the WBC heavyweight title from 2015 to 2020, making 10 successful defenses. He then lost it to Tyson Fury at Deontay Wilder vs. Tyson Fury II in February 2020. Wilder and Fury stepped out again for a trilogy fight in October 2021, but the former could not regain his title after an 11th-round knockout. After a year, he will now face Finland’s Robert Helenius in a fight he definitely sees as a must-win.
Robert Helenius (30-3, 19 Kos)
Robert Helenius has only lost three fights in his career and is currently ranked 2nd by the WBA. Unlike Wilder, the 38-year-old “Nordic Nightmare” is on a roll, having won six of his last seven bouts. The second last fight was a huge win as Helenius pulled a surprise by stopping an undefeated Adam Kownacki in the fourth round, winning the vacant WBA Gold heavyweight title in the process. The two then had a rematch on the main card of Wilder vs Fury III in October 2021, with Helenius getting a technical knockout victory. He is now set to face Deontonay Wilder in a 12-round bout.

Alternatively, you can download the PPV App (from ppv.com) from the store and purchase the event for the same amount.
However, if you are not in the US, you need to use a VPN, as these two apps are geo-restricted. We suggest that you go for Surfshark as the VPN has lots of servers in the US, and it’s also super-fast.

Fite TV has an app in the Amazon and Google Play Store, and you won’t need a subscription to purchase the PPV.
Note that Fite TV provides content depending on your region. The subscription service is only offering Wilder vs Helenius in a few countries, so you will need to have Surfshark and connect it to a country such as the UK.

⚠ Free Streaming Precautions
Free sports streaming has been a concern among broadcasters and content distributors for many years. This is because, in many cases, these streams are pirated.
Broadcasters have collaborated with ISPs and governments to curb the practice, resulting in blocked streams, copyright notices, and legal actions.
👉 For this reason, we highly advise using a VPN if you wish to watch Wilder vs Helenius for free. This will help hide your activities and anonymize your connection to make it untraceable.
✋ However, you’ll also need to choose your VPN carefully, as some do not offer good privacy, and others are quite slow.

Method 3: How to Watch Wilder vs Helenius On Firestick Using Free Streaming Sites
Kodi addons source their links from various streaming sites, so you can always go to the source if you have to. However, free streaming sites usually feature lots of ads and pop-ups, so we suggest you first install Blokada on Firestick or Android TV box.
Apart from Blokada, you will also need to ensure that your Surfshark is running and connected to a server. This will prevent your ISP from knowing that you are streaming from a possibly sketchy site and make you anonymous.
From there, you can select a streaming site from the thousands available on the internet. Some of the best sports streaming sites include:
You can use Firestick’s default browser, Silk Browser, to access these websites. The browser is pre-installed on all Firestick devices, but you can also get it from the Amazon store if you don’t have it. When you visit a website, head to the boxing category, and you’ll find a link.
Wilder vs Helenius is bound to be an exciting heavyweight fight, with both fighters knowing that a win will take them to the top. The main card also features lots of exciting fighters, and you can use the above methods to watch the PPV event. Just remember,
