Helenius fell backward on his back. The bell rang when he was down. Helenius seemed to beat the count at nine, but after rising to his feet he staggered uncontrollably forward across the entire ring. Helenius went straight into the ropes and tried to hold on, but collapsed as his legs were gone, and he did not arise for a knockout loss at 3:08 of the sixth round, ending the contest. In order to have actually beaten the count, Robert Helenius had to stay on his feet after getting up, but was unable to do so. As such, an official ten count knockout then occurred.
