Default Rate Frank Bruno

For me he was one of the hardest punchers EVER and only that got him anywhere and eventually to a world title.

As an all round boxer though very limited.

What do you think?

He could box a bit. He just came along at bad times in terms of challenging for titles. In todays crop of heavies a prime Frank Bruno might hold two of the belts with only Klitschko and a few others to worry about as competition

If the game shakes me or breaks me, I hope it makes me -- a better man

Frank Bruno eh?

He was about as flexible as a cow on a trampoline, because of all the weights he did, which was one major major downfall of his. He was also scared ****less of fights, which made no sense since he was a boxer, and when he fought Tyson the second time round he was getting psyched out by everyone, including the man in my avatar. He also had a series of unfortunate events in his life, like Tyson - in that one of his beloved trainers died and he always had problems with his ***** - erm i mean wife.

So yeah, too many distractions, trained completely wrong, never made an impact... from what I have seen he could box a little though, and like Giant one says, he would stand a chance now, but he was fighting in the 90's so forget it.

i like him

he was one of the hardest punchers ever...he could kayod tyson if only he had the one thing he really lacked....a killer instinct

when he had tyson shaken he didnt jump on him like he should have as he had a confidence issue and was taken aback by the surprise that he had him shaken

i also respect his heart a lot...to compete for titles so many times in a tough era deserves a lot of respect...true brit

also he comes across to me as a very nice guy
