Helenius won bronze medal in 2000 at the European "cadet" (U17) championships in Patras; he lost to Croatian Mario Preskar. In 2001, he earned another bronze at the Junior European Championships in Sarajevo, losing to hard-hitting Russian Islam Timurziev.

Helenius lost in the first round of the 2001 Finnish Amateur Boxing Championships to eventual gold medalist Janne Katajisto. Katajisto defeated Helenius in the final the following year.

Mianyang Helenius won points over David Price in 2005, but then lost to Rustam Saidov.

The year 2006, on the other hand, was his breakthrough year. He came in second at the 2006 European Amateur Boxing Championships in Plovdiv, this time on points, but not necessarily defeated by Timurziev. By this time, all of Helenius' victories had been decided by surprise, including against Bogdan Dinu.

Helenius has been fighting in Germany in the Box-Bundesliga (Premier League) for Hertha BSC since 2006. If Helenius turned pro after the Olympics, promoter Sauerland-Boxstall had purchased an option. He lost to Marko Tomasovi and Jaroslavas Jakoto in the Olympic qualifiers. Helenius defeated Sergei Kharitonov, a MMA heavyweight champion, in the amateurs, by a score.

Professional career

land. Helenius turned professional in 2008 to face Wilfried Sauerland, a German nation. Helenius defeated former British heavyweight champion Scott Gammer in 2009 and defeated Taras Bidenko in the third round stoppage.

Helenius took the biggest leap forward in his professional career in January 2010 over former WBO heavyweight champion Lamon Brewster. Many commentators wondered if the Brewster match had arrived too early for the big Finn, but Helenius kept his tenacity and punching ability by grinding Brewster down to a humiliating TKO in the eighth round. Despite breaking a bone next to his right hand's knuckles in Helsinki, Helenius went on to defeat Gbenga Oloukun on March 26, 2010.

Helenius won the vacant EU heavyweight title over In August 2010, against unbeaten Grégory Tony. Helenius won the second round of the Attila Levin for the first time on November 27, 2010. He also won the vacant WBO InterContinental title in the same match.

Helenius signed to face another former world heavyweight champion in Samuel Peter, trying to capitalize on the excitement of his huge win over Lamon Brewster. In their marquee rematch match, Peter was coming off a humiliating 10th-round loss to unified heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko. On April 2, 2011, a brawl took place. Peter began the fight by committing to a common body and head assault. Helenius survived the storm and soon found his signature right hand in the middle rounds. The score cards were split as the 9th round came to an end, but Helenius won, leaving Peter out cold on the canvas for a long time over the tenth number. Helenius defended his WBO and WBA InterContinental titles against Sergei Liakhovich in Munich, Germany, after a technical failure in round 9 on August 27.

Helenius claimed the vacant European Championship title (EBU) by defeating Derek Chisora by a 12-round split decision in Helsinki, Finland, on December 3rd. The decision was highly criticized by most pundits and observers, who believed Chisora had done enough to get the call. Helenius claimed that he had injured his right arm in the first round of the tournament and was therefore unable to use it fully. A fracture was discovered, but it was deemed to be minor. The verdict was widely condemned by the crowd and pundits, with Freddie Roach who was describing it as "just terrible" and 'Helenius was supposed to be the next big thing and the man to beat the Klitschko's, but Derek completely exposed him, and I'm being generous in giving him four winning rounds.'

The match was decided "a gift," according to the Ring, reducing Helenius' ranking from fifth to sixth challenger. On the other hand, his slugger fighting style has been described as lazy but effective; he seems to be not doing much, but keeps putting men down.

The injury necessitated an operation to recover fully and to minimize any chance of further injury, a long distance from fighting. Helenius beat veteran Sherman "The Caribbean Tank" Williams on points in Helsinki on November 10, 2012, extending his undefeated record. The contest was the main event on the only Sauerland Events Viasat Nordic Fight Night card that had not been held outside of Denmark.

Lobjanidze had no chance and fell to the ground in every round before he was forced to leave the match during the third round.

Helenius had been supposed to face Erkan Teper for the EBU heavyweight title on December 19, 2015, but Teper had to cancel the match and had to give up his title due to a crash. Helenius was matched with Rivest replacement Franz Rill as a result of Teper's retirement from the European heavyweight championship and the IBF's international heavyweight championship. Helenius won a clear and binding 12 round unanimous vote; Rill was adamant, but Helenius dominated proceedings, with his jab and strong counter punching knocking his opponent to the ground in both the first and fourth rounds.

Helenius vacated the European belt on January 20th, 2016 after refusing to face mandatory challenger Derek Chisora. Helenius, rather, met Johann Duhaupas in Helsinki on 2 April for the vacant WBC Silver Heavyweight title. Duhaupas knocking Helenius out of the sixth round of the game, marking the first loss for the first unbeaten Helenius.

Helenius met Konstantin Airich, a German boxer, in his home town Marienhamn on September 10th. This was his first match since losing to Duhaupas. Helenius finished the game in the first round, knocking Airich out in 49 seconds.

Helenius and Sauerland announced in October 2016 that they had come to terms with their labour conflict from 2015 and that they would host at least two more matches together.

Helenius beat Gonzalo Basile in 48 seconds in a lackluster scrab at Hartwall Arena in Helsinki on December 17th.

On May 27, the competition will have fought for the vacant WBC Silver heavyweight crown. The combat was however postponed to take place after the summer 2017 campaign was postponed. Helenius went on to face Russian Evgeny Orlov on June 17th, 2017 and gained a convincing victory in the 6th round after Chisora's match was postponed.

Helenius will face Dillian Whyte on October 15, 2017, after Whyte had a difficult time finding an opponent. Whyte ruled the match from the third round to a unanimous decision in the final round. Helenius said afterwards that he knew the risks for accepting the match on such short notice and with just a week of preparation, but that it was risking for money in the case of a need for resources.

Helenius met Yury Bykhautsou in Rakvere, Estonia, on March 17th. Helenius was hospitalized during the game but the team went on to win by an 8-round split decision. Helenius rematch with Bykhautsou in Olavinlinna on August 11, 2018 after being dissatisfied with his results during the match.

Helenius face undefeated Adam Kownacki in a WBA championship eliminator on March 7, 2020. Although Kownacki was the most favored, Helenius brought about a big surprise by defeating Kownacki in the fourth round of the vacant WBA Gold heavyweight championship in the process. Helenius was the requisite challenger for titlist Anthony Joshua after the victory. Joshua, on the other hand, was already scheduled to face Kubrat Pulev and Kownacki, who were using his contractual rematch clause.

The match was postponed several times due to various reasons, but Helenius returned on October 2021 against Adam Kownacki, according to Helenius' boss. Helenius' dominance of Helenius was evidently defeated Kownacki after six rounds of dominance against a clearly defeated Kownacki. Before being disqualified in the sixth round, the former had inflicted his eye and then collapsed in the face of repeated low blows, causing Kownacki to be disqualified. The result was later changed to a technical knockout victory for Helenius, which was later extended to a tactical knockout victory.
