‘Know what I mean, Melksham?’ Boxing legend to host intimate evening

Story posted on

BOXING legend and former WBC heavyweight champion of the world,  Frank Bruno MBE, is hosting an intimate evening at Melksham Assembly Hall on Friday 25th October from 7pm. 

Frank will be interviewed live on stage by a special guest interviewer and he will answer questions about his battles both inside and outside of the ring.

Franklin Roy “Frank” Bruno, MBE is a British former professional boxer who competed from 1982 to 1996. Bruno had a highly publicised and extremely eventful career.

The pinnacle of his boxing career was winning the WBC heavyweight title, in what was his fourth world championship challenge. 

He also held the European heavyweight title earlier in his career. Bruno was one of the most well-loved and recognisable boxers in British history, and faced multiple top-rated heavyweights during his career including two bouts with Mike Tyson and a domestic clash against Lennox Lewis.

He won the WBC title in 1995 after defeating Oliver McCall at a packed Wembley Stadium. Bruno was known for his excellent punching power: he won 40 of his 45 bouts and 38 by knockout, giving him a 95% knockout rate from the fights he won; his overall knockout percentage is 84.44%.

Like Henry Cooper before him, Bruno has remained a popular celebrity with the British public following his retirement from boxing.
