Default Re: Did you like Frank Bruno in the 80's and/or 90's?

He never really improved any over the years, he barely put up a fight in either Tyson bout and although he boxed well against Lewis, once he got tired it was the same old story.
If you get a chance, watch the Floyd 'Jumbo' Cummings fight. Bruno was out on his feet and saved by the bell, otherwise he would have been murdered in that one even before he fought Bonecrusher. It's worth watching with the sound up just to hear that monsterous body shot that eventually took Cummings out.
