    That could happen. But Witherspoon was a better fighter than Bruno OR Page. And Frank was leading in that fight until Tim nailed him with a colossal overhand right

    Greg Page should beat Bruno,,but you can say that about a lot of Page's opponents he fought at that time. Anytime I see a fantasy fight with Page's name it draws out the same response , he could win ,,,but?

    I am not into moral victories but plain old fashioned victories.

    We need to make Frank Bruno week a thing, though I'm not sure how much new content we can churn out for a week on Bruno for decades to come

    Frank Bruno must be Flavor Of The Week.

    Same here !! We have that in common! But I wasn’t pointing out a moral victory. Only that him losing to Witherspoon in a competitive fight isn’t necessarily a reason to favor Page ! :)

    If Page turns up on form, then I give him the edge.

    If he doesn't turn up on form, then Bruno will.
