    bruno had more chances than he deserved.
    tim witherspoon was a much underestimated fighter but don ******* froze him out after he'd lost the title

    You can talk **** about fights and fighters we don't have footage off and it's hard to catch you at it. When you talk **** about fights and fighters that are on youtube...of course you're going to get caught.

    3:00 Flush left hook. Bruno circles away, grabs, punches. He doesn't "just go to pieces".

    3:06 Right hand. Takes away Bruno's legs. He backs up, circles left out of the corner.

    3:08 Right hand. Bruno goes down. He gets up and calmly takes the 8 count. Comes back jabbing, circling away from the left hook, punching back. Clinches, circles away.

    Bruno has taken multiple big punches from one of the best hitters in the entire history of boxing at any weight. He boxes back, holds, hits, mauls. He holds, then boxes out against a stationary Tyson who looks more "frozen" than Bruno does. He backs up, making Mike miss. Inside he ties him, leans, and hits. He lands more blows than Tyson in round one. He boxes the PERFECT fight after shipping multiple flush punches to Mike Tyson. He doesn't "freeze". What you've said is the opposite of true.


    5:00 flush half formed uppercut. Bruno is fine.

    5:08 Bruno nails and hurts Mike Tyson.


    From commentary: "Bruno went down but not hurt! Bruno caught Tyson and did hurt him!"

    Bruno took a load of heavy punches throughout the 11 rounds with Witherspoon before he wilted. He took punches that Haye wouldn't even agree to be within a mile of.
    Haye's never fought a top-level heavyweight puncher. ****, you could argue that Audley Harrison will be the most dangerous puncher he's faced.

    Bruno certainly had inadequacies at the top level when it came to surviving and overcoming tough battles and men of equal power, but we are talking about a level well above anywhere Haye has come close to.

    Bruno was ridiculed and slated in the press for fighting the kind of stiffs and has-beens that Haye is fighting now.
    Haye's best win to date is a performance that matches what a decrepit old Holyfield can do. That's pathetic.
    He's more on the level of a Herbie Hide than a Frank Bruno. And all three of them aren't much good.

    Maybe you need to do that? What you are saying about Frank just isn't true, and the footage shows it isn't true.

    Bruno would have destroyed Mormeck inside a round or two. Barrett would be battered mercilessly in one-sided fashion. And in the British press at least, he would have been slated for fighting such feeble opponents.
    The question of his vulnerabilities would be unlikely to come up against such easy opponents.

    I don't think Haye would last long against Witherspoon, and I doubt he could keep away from Smith all night. Those guys would put him to sleep.

    If he manages to dethrone Wlad it will probably be 2-3 years in the future and another win over an old man.
    More likely Haye will retire after a win over Audley and a win over Bernard Hopkins.

    Why would I? It only took one to prove what you were saying was incorrect.

    No, I don't think Bruno was a natural...and I think that Haye is a natural.

    As for whether or not he could beat Frank Bruno? Let's wait and see if he can beat Fraudley first!

    I take it you don't like Haye then :lol: I don't think anyone would consider the undisputed Cruser champ Mormeck a feable opponent. Bruno may well beat him, I wouldn't debate that too much but how many fighters has Bruno actually beat who are better than Mormeck? McCall and maybe Coetzer or Coetzee
