    Cleveland Big Cat Williams 1959 vs Frank Bruno 1986. Big Cat broke Sonny Liston's nose before being stopped. Frank Bruno is a tough heavyweight stopped by Witherspoon and Tyson, who wins and why?

    This could go either way. Williams' superior hand speed and stamina would be the difference for me. Williams late TKO.

    He was a talented heavyweight who was around at the wrong time as Tim Witherspoon and Mike Tyson. We could always match prime Sonny Liston against Frank Bruno, Lol.

    Cleve would destroy Bruno, no doubt about it. Stronger, tougher guy who also had a lot of skill and never had a problem getting off in the ring, contrary to what some say.

    Williams crushes Bruno

    Bruno can't handle big punchers ... Williams had top level power

    Liston is a bad matchup for Bruno... Better, more rangey, harder jab would shake up Bruno badly

    Williams should win this.
    He was just better.
