    Haye was never no elite heavyweight, don't talk whet for gawd sake, beating valuev makes nobody elite..

    This. A 46 year old shot to sh*t Evander Holyfield was robbed blind against Valuev. His performance was as good if not better than Haye’s.

    I like Frank, like him a lot, I will always stick up for him and defend him when people abuse him but..

    Style wise, Haye would have been a problem for Bruno, the speed, the mobility, the style.. I think Bruno would have struggled.

    That said, if Bruno landed one right hand on Hayes chin.. GAME OVER.

    Haye would move around and pepper Bruno like Tyson did, likely land a big one. Obviously if Bruno can get his right hand to detonate he's in business but unlikely imo.

    Those of us that grew up watching Bruno remember him being the bigger guy, the fitter guy or the harder puncher in the vast majority of his fights, the wins at least.
    Against Haye, Frank enjoys none of these advantages and he's hardly going to outlast anyone is he ? It's an even fight between 2 guys at around the same level. Terry Lawless and Mickey Duff worked hard to keep Frank out of too many of those.
    Speed kills and I think Haye's clear advantage here makes all the difference. Expect Haye v Chisora all over again.

    Haye wins a decision or late stoppage. Either way he wins this fight

    He isn’t Bigger? Are you kidding? Haye was a 6ft 2 cruiserweight

    For me this is a shoot-out and is over inside 4 rounds.

    Bruno was very stiff and upright in the old school euro style and had pretty slow hands despite the one punch ko power.

    i'd fancy haye timing a right hander on franks suspect tash and finishing him off early doors.

    His punches come faster and David could certainly crack. I'd back him in a gunfight with Frank, yeah.
