Bruno V Tyson; THE BIG NAME VEDICT


CHARLIE MAGRI

ONE of our best little guys, Magri believes that his punch offers Bruno a king-sized chance of genuinely pulling off a big upset.

The former world flyweight title-holder said: "Frank's got a great chance of winning. I don't think Tyson's half the man he was following his time inside. In the first few rounds he'll use his pole-like stiff jab to rock Tyson back.

"Tyson, coming in low and crouching, will be throwing big shots back. Bruno can then use that big right hand to set him up with a left hook, or deliver some pile-driving uppercuts."

The former WBC flyweight king added: "Frank's certainly got the power to trouble Tyson.

"But if he's going to do it, and I think he can, then it's got to be inside the first five rounds. Any longer and Frank's suspect stamina swings the odds completely the other way."

ALAN MINTER

I'VE no doubts - it's `Typhoon' Mike Tyson to blow away Frank Bruno after a whirlwind start.

Britain's former world middleweight champ insists: "Unfortunately, as far as Frank's concerned, as soon as the bell goes, it's over. In fact it could be finished in the first round, and I don't think it's going to last more than three.

"Bruno will come out jabbing, trying to keep Tyson away, but whatever he throws he won't be able to stop him.

"You can teach a man to jab, throw right-crosses, uppercuts, whatever, but you can't teach him how to fight.

"Tyson is a natural fighter, educated in the ways of bobbing and weaving, moving from head to waist.

"Sure, Bruno's got a puncher's chance but he suits Tyson perfectly. Tyson's wicked, a real nuisance, and I don't think he's lost it. I'd love Bruno to pull it off, but somehow, I just can't see it."

DUKE McKENZIE

TRIPLE world champ Duke McKenzie thinks we can all start getting ready to celebrate a Frank Bruno National Day.

McKenzie, the first Great Brit to win world crowns at three different weights, says: "If Frank wins they should call a public holiday in his honour. That's because if he beats Tyson, and I firmly believe that's going to happen, he'll be more popular here than the Pope and Princess Di put together."

McKenzie adds: "Frank's got a beautiful jab, and he'll be sticking it on Tyson, and all those psychological problems will start to hit home at Tyson.

"Once Mike's in that ring, and all the hype, glitz and glamour is gone, he'll be there alone. And I can see him in deep trouble, coming unstuck big-time.

"Tyson's no longer the ferocious animal he once was, the man who ruled the division virtually by fear alone. Those days are long gone."

NASEEM HAMED

THE WBO world featherweight champion says: "My heart is going out to Frank. All he needs to win is a positive mental attitude.

"He can win but he's got to want the fight so much. Just one punch and Frank will become the most famous boxer Britain has ever produced.

"One right-hander can put Frank in history as the man who brought a phenomenon called Mike Tyson to his knees and halted a legend's comeback.

"Frank can do it. He can take Mike Tyson out. Nothing is impossible.

"Tyson will be up for this fight. He is out to show he's back to his intimidating best. If Frank wins it will be in the first five or six rounds, but I can't see the contest going beyond eight rounds.

"Frank, I am with you in spirit, hoping that you win, praying for your success."

JOE BUGNER

THE former British, European and Commonwealth heavyweight champion says: "Good luck to Frank when he fights Tyson. I want Bruno to hammer Tyson so we can get it on again.

"That's my big dream. I want revenge on Frank Bruno. Maybe I'm biased. I don't like Tyson as a person. I don't think he's done boxing any favours and I wouldn't want my kid to follow in his footsteps. I couldn't afford all the court cases. …
