Bugner was 100% Hungarian, born there to Hungarian patents. he is a top 100 of all-time HW. Beat Cooper, Ellis, Mac Foster, Bey, Denis, Page-lost to Middleton and Marvis Frazier though.

You are too witty for this forum, and thus clearly not an Aussie

Not really "loved"
More a case of being related by birth!
The guy was a great boxer in his time and in hi sprime but you wont find many people here preaching about the great things that "Aussie Joe" did!

Was he loved... Of course he was Australia loved Joe and i did too, a very good solid bad guy type of heavyweight.. fond memories...
