You got to give it to Hearn, he milked as much as possible before the wheels fell off.
First time he got punched in his career against Whyte his legs went.
Was gifted the title against the worst heavyweight champion in the history of pugilism.
His biggest win against Klitschko, still got floored against a flighter Fury our boxed easlily 18 months previous.
Just a pumped up body builder, modern day Frank Bruno.

Glad I didn't leave Black Coffee early to watch it now. What a show up. Arguably he needed that wake up call. Had too many near misses in the past. (Yay for the bloated though)

Frank Bruno was a far better boxer than most people gave him credit for: Forty-five fights, 40 wins, THIRTY EIGHT KO's. The only 4 men to beat him were James 'Bonecrusher' Smith (went on to hold the WBA and IBF titles at different times), Tim Witherspoon (who was WBA champion at the time), Mike Tyson (twice) and Lennox Lewis. Bruno's record stands up to pretty much any modern era heavyweights and all his defeats except for the 'Bonecrusher' Smith fight were for the world title and all were aginst future Hall-of-Famers.

Yep and when he stepped up against the best he fell short, his biggest victory was against a crack addict.
