Default If Frank Bruno was around today, how do you think hes fair?

Not too bad Id punt.

His size and strength are attributes seen less and less in HW boxing these days.

Ok, no one would say he was a hall of famer, but he wasnt that bad you know! The Ks would beat him, and i also believe Haye would also as Frank isnt capable of handling that kind of speed delivered with the power that Haye punches with, however...

Id pick Frank over ANY other HW right now, and my God, boxing needs his kind of personality again.

3rd HW behind the Klitschkos. Lol at Haye beating him, Haye's chin is as bad, if not worse, Bruno would have knocked him the fuck out.

Bruno wouldve jabbed Haye to exhaustion then KO'd him

Big Vit KOs him.

Wlad is 60/40 to win by KO/lose by KO

He'd be a serious contender for sure. He'd batter Haye. The Klits might be a step too far.

He could KO Wlad and Haye if he was able to land clean. But Vitali brutalises him.

He would be the champion.

Haye would be KOed. Wlad and Vitali would be tough fights but Id favour Bruno.

Bruno actually had a pretty decent chin he just lacked survival instincts when he was hurt.



he was giving lewis a lot of trouble until the stoppage notice the multiple big power shots lewis landed to stop the fights Bruno did not even attempt to clinch and hang on.
