    I was just watching Carnera on youtube and he fought a lot like Frank, constantly using his long reach by pumping the jab and panicing everytime a fighter got up close, plus he had no chin, the difference was Franks power, but could Carnera`s reach help him against Frank? Would Valuev`s reach be too much for Frank?

    Bruno was more durable than Carnera and fought a lot more punchers.

    To answer your question . No.

    Bruno never panicked every time someone got up close, where has that came from?
    Later in fights when gassing then tagged he didn't know how to hold, grab or whatever to survive, fair enough.

    Carnera on his best day and brunos worst makes it to round 5 before Frank puts him down with a big right hand.

    This was aimed at fans that think Carnera was really good and British fans who think Bruno was really good too if that makes any sense.

    He panicked everytime Tyson got close in both fights, in the first fight he kept grabbed Mike by the neck and slapping him with his other hand.

    Bruno was far from a great fighter,but-----
    No one had to pay any of his opponents to take a dive.

    Haha I was just joking mate.

    I think I would pick Bruno to win this one. Even Loughran could go the distance with Carnera and he was outweighed 90 odd lbs.

    I think that both Carnera and Valuev were more consistent at world level than Bruno.

    I am not making Bruno the favorite here.

    Valuev could do a Smith or Spoon on him. Doesn't get stopped anyway.
