Apparently Bruno was out on his feet at one point, and Terry Lawless ( Bruno's trainer ) had to stear him back to his corner, and work hastily to revive him. Frank came out for I believe the 8th round, and managed to put together a win.
Cummings almost scored a 1st round KO.
If he had connected with that shot a few seconds earlier Bruno would have been stopped. Luckily for Bruno the bell prevented the finishing shot being delivered.
