    Bruno stopped Larry Frazier...what about the other Frazier, Joe? Some who sparred with Foreman and Bruno say that Bruno hit about as hard.

    Terrible matchup for Frank. I think Frazier stops Bruno in 6 to 8.

    Marciano vs Frazier would have at least been interesting. Instead we get Marciano vs Foster and Frazier vs Bruno lol

    Tim Witherspoon wore out Frank Bruno, in their July 19 1986 encounter in London, and Witherspoon stopped him in round 11. Joe Frazier, an all time great would get underneath Frank's punches as he fights out of a classic European stance, and rip that mighty left hook to the body. Joe would apply so much pressure that Bruno would feel as if he was suffocating. Frank swollen about his midriff, would collapse in round 7, from an array of brutal body punches.

    All of them are calm compared to Marciano vs Mayweather.

    There was one about Marciano vs a Cat the other day

    Frank Bruno was pretty good. I think Frazier beats him but it won't be that easy. Bruno had a ramrod jab and serious power. Not even Frazier is going to just walk through him.

    Frazier would eat his cornflakes out of Bruno's skull.

    Thank you. Some sense of sanity. Bruno may even score a knock down.

    Bruno was not a bad fighter or challenger and quite possibly he gives a stiff test to quite a few champs...

    But the evidence to pick him or to establish him as a favorite is pretty slim to non existent. It is like picking Tua to hypothetically do what he was unable to do in reality. Could Tua or Bruno give a good account of themselves as a solid contender/challenger ? Possibly?

    But there is not much reason to pick them unless one ascribes to modern is better theories.
