Default Re: Frank Bruno vs the new crop of Heavyweights? How would he fair?

And it was the same thing Audley Harrison did for afew rounds, constantly making David Haye reset.

Bruno showed the slight ability to do this.

Its the most simplistic of skills but requires some athletic ability which allot of fights don't have.

Bruno was able to do it slightly, but don't as astutely as Kiltschko.

If he did not have the ability to keep stepping out of range, he would not of achieve so much.

The Bruno who fought Lewis WAS the best version of Bruno.

After that point he got carried away with body building, and retained too much non-functional muscle. Flexibility decreased, and he just simply took it too far.
I agree with this. I think Bruno was at his best against Lewis, too. That version has to rate highly in this current lineup. I can see ways for both Bruno and Haye to win that, convincing arguments for both.
