Bruno is a level below Wlad in terms of skills but would have a punchers chance.

My money would be on Wlad.

Klitschko. Both guys have weak chins, except Wlad is the bigger puncher and more skilled.

I've taken Bruno by knock-out, which is a pretty sad indictment of the current HW scene. Bruno always landed with maybe the exception of the second Tyson fight where he was just plain scared. And i reckon too many of Frank's nukes would have Wlad on ***** street.

I fancy Wlad. A better technician than Bruno, able to keep Frank out of range for the most part before landing a bomb around round 9/10. If Frank manages to catch him at any stage though it could be all over.

I don't buy the idea that Wlad is technically the better boxer. Bruno was never outboxed, in fact he even had the edge against Lewis if I remember correctly.

Bruno would be able to absorb Wlad's punches (for a few rounds, at least), but there's no way Wlad would take Frank's big right hands.

The fight would last as long as it took Bruno to land a flush shot.

This is a close fight, because the exact same thing can be said but replacing 'Bruno' in the line above with 'Wlad'

frank bruno is my hero!! he never got the respect he deserved!
he got written off time and time again! he never gave up!
he stood toe 2 toe with bonecrusher,witherspoon,tyson+lewis & the rest + his persistance paid off!
i reckon he could have taken klischko out!!

frank wasn`t "jst plain scared" he went into that fight with a torn cornea! he new the game was up! but he still went in regardless!( due to a bit of jiggery-pokery during the medical!)

I think whoever lands the bombs first would win. Both had/have suspect chins but being patriotic I'd plump for Bruno to get the job done inside 5 rounds.

Vlad's skills are too good for Bruno, Bruno had stamina problems, but I always like Bruno.

What is this bollox about Wladimir out boxing him? Bruno had one of the best jabs of all time. Wlad would have to come forward and pressure Bruno to win this and he is simply not capable of it.
