Dictating range against him is horribly difficult; You go around, you're getting flashed with a hook or a right hand. You go under, hundreds of pounds of chiseled manflesh comes down on your back, and that does NOT feel good. He's brute strong and deceptively fast, and he could kill wild animals with his right cross.

I'd put him in with a great shot against any I've faced, and I'd pick him to beat 99% of them. Too much power, too strong, too masterful with spacing.

I can't personally attest to Frank Bruno, but he seems a level below this. I like what I see, and he clearly has some great attributes and savvy, but he lost most of his big fights by decisive knockout, and that speaks to problems.
great insight
