The Bronze Bomber said: “It’s been a long journey for me and as of today it continues.

“I thought so many times about whether I should stay out of the business or come back.

“Once I got my statue in my hometown and saw so many people arrive and celebrate with me and my family, to see all the emotions, grown men crying in front of their children and saying he is a real true king, made me feel like my job is not done.

“So, here I am once again, looking forward to returning to the ring. I am looking forward to coming to Barclays Center, a place where I have had my most devastating knockouts and a place I consider my second home.

“So where all my Bombzquad people at? It’s time to put on your war gear. And let’s go to work, baby. Bombzquad is back!

Helenius, meanwhile, has won his last three bouts and targeting a step up to world level.

The 38-year-old Swedish heavyweight is new to boxing in the United States with most of his career to date being in Europe.

The fight will be a final eliminator for Wilder’s old WBC title, currently held by the Gypsy King.
