At the height of his powers, Frank Bruno was the most popular sportsmen in the country and to this day the former world heavyweight champion remains a national icon. Born in London in 1961, Bruno turned professional in 1980 and 21 consecutive wins by knockout quickly earned him a reputation as one of boxing's most entertaining and explosive fighters and it was not long before he had his first shot at a world title. In 1986 he challenged American Tim Witherspoon for the WBA title but despite leading the contest on all three judges' cards, he was knocked down in the eleventh round. His second chance came three years later against Mike Tyson and although he was eventually stopped in the fifth, Bruno won a legion of new fans with a juddering left hook in the first round that visibly rocked Tyson and gave the Londoner brief hope of pulling of a sensational shock. Bruno refused to give up on his dream of winning a world title and nine years after his clash with Witherspoon, the dream was realised. Bruno faced American Oliver McCall for the WBC belt and after 12 gruelling rounds that tested the stamina of both fighters to the limit, Bruno emerged the victor on points. He was finally a world heavyweight champion. His reign was to last for only one more fight as Tyson claimed the belt in Glasgow the following year. It was to be Bruno's last professional bout and he duly retired in 1996 with a proud record of 40 victories from 45 fights, 38 of those 40 wins coming by knockout. Own a piece of sporting history Frank Bruno was an icon during his 16-year long professional career and this beautiful canvas captures the popular English heavyweight going toe-to-toe with 'Iron' Mike Tyson during the WDC world title fight in Glasgow in 1996. The canvas is personally signed Bruno himself and is a stunning piece of sporting memorabilia that shows the great man in the heat of battle as he defended his WDC crown.
