Former heavyweight champion, Bruno returns to boxing

 

Former world heavyweight champion Frank Bruno is set for a return to boxing after being granted a British Boxing Board of Control licence that allows him to become a trainer.
The highlight of his own career was defeating Oliver McCall at Wembley in 1995 to win the WBC heavyweight title.
Bruno won 40 out of 45 fights in his career, with 38 of those by knockout.
“Great to be in the ring coming from a different angle,” Bruno, 55, said on his Instagram page.
Bruno, who did not fight again after being knocked out by Mike Tyson in 1996, has suffered with bipolar disorder in recent years.
He made his professional debut in 1982 and fought the legendary Tyson twice – in 1989 and then seven years later, both in Las Vegas – before becoming a television personality.
