Helenious happy with gift

Frank Warren has fired off a letter to the European Boxing Union calling for an immediate rematch after his charge Derek Chisora was denied a clear victory over hometown favourite Robert Helenious last week.

"Giuseppe Quartarone and Manuel Oliver Palomo both unbelievably had it 115-113 to Helenius while Leszek Jankowiak scored it 115-113 for Chisora. " said Warren in his column in The Sun newspaper "But Chisora won it by at least 4 rounds in my eyes."

"Boxing writer Dan Rafael said it was a 'highway robbery, an outright theft' while top trainer Freddie Roach said the decision was terrible.

"I've sent a letter to the European Boxing Union asking for an immediate rematch." he concluded.
