Recently, Bruno shared his opinion of Fury. In an interview with DAZN, Bruno warned Fury, saying, “He knows deep down in his heart if he was around in my day, they’d eat him for dinner. I’m not going to sit here and disrespect him, but we’re talking about a different era. He’s living on a different cloud to what I was on.”

“He’s number one. He deserves to be number one. I’ve got a lot of respect for him,” Bruno said. Frank Bruno fought in the era of fighters such as ‘Iron’ Mike Tyson and Evander Holyfield. So what he says is not entirely false.

The exact outcome of Fury fighting one of these legends can not be predicted. However, it is true that the current WBC heavyweight champion of the world would have a tough time facing those guys.
