Default Joe Bugner

Was speaking to his manager last month(went to a boxing dinner to see Joe Fraziers , he's also his manager).He mentioned how popular he is over there.Is this true because when he asked a few of us what we thought about bringing him over here to the UK to do some show we told him that he wouldn't draw a crowd at all.

'Aussie Joe' is highly regarded here.

Are you unfamiliar with the "Aussie" Joe moniker?

Joe is popular here. He probably should write a book. He'd have some stories to tell.

Don't think they have ever forgiven him for defeating Henry Cooper.

He really is a great fella. If he got a chance to meet and greet or do a long interview in the uk, im sure the poms would forgive him

Just a pleasant gentleman, full of life. And yep, his hands are huge.

This is true.


Bugner for all his niceness could also play the villian earlier in his career. Some fighters change there public profile in time i.e. George Foreman. Nasty bastard in his prime, cuddly George in his latter life.
