Default Re: Mike Weaver vs. Frank Bruno

In '86 I think it's likely Bruno wins, unless Weaver catches him with the hook a la Weaver's fight with Truth Williams.

Prime for prime I like Weaver, probably similar to Weaver's fight with Coetzee although I think Frank would last slightly less than the 13 rounds Coetzee did...

I don't think Bruno had a single win against an elite heavy IN THEIR PRIME...he always tended to come up short. Mickey Duff always said Bruno did not have a top class temperament. I believe Bruno always seemed to use up too much nervous energy against the real top guys, and his losses to the elite seemed to be self-fulfilling prophecies...
