Absolutley...

I remember wanting to put my foot through the TV that night to put my foot in Honeygan's mouth... I so wanted Nigel Benn to KHTFO...

I supported Frank all the way from the: "Oh my god it is Cummings all over again!" days; to the: "Get in there Frank!" moment; but irony had kicked in by the 12th, and I so wanted McCall to stop him...

It would of been the most fitting finale for Bomber Bruno. But sadly that came in the farcical Tyson rematch...

He didn't have a bad chin. Just fought some very good punchers and never knew how to clinch and get himself back together.

Nothing wrong with Brunos chin, it was his stamina that caused the problems
