Boxers may retire but their legacy and rivalries live on. One such iconic rivalry is that of Mike Tyson and Frank Bruno. The two former heavyweight titans fought each other not once but twice. In their first fight, back in 1989, the British boxer was the challenger, and, ‘Iron Mike,’ was the champion. When the two clashed, Tyson defeated him via a fifth-round knockout. Moreover, destiny had it for them to meet again. They met again for a rematch, back in 1996, and in this bout, Tyson not only got the job done again but did it much faster. He knocked Bruno out inside three rounds.

Not only that, the second defeat was the last time the former champion graced the squared circle. However, despite the defeats, Bruno had a celebrated career of 4o victories with only five defeats which is nothing to scoff at.
