Frank Bruno MBE

Frank Bruno MBE

In 1989, Frank challenged Mike Tyson for the unified world heavyweight title in Las Vegas.  Although not winning, it was fair to say the whole of the UK was willing Frank on!

Frank kept winning fights, helping him to retain his spot as one of the world’s leading Heavyweights.

On 2 September 1995 Bruno finally became World Champion by outpointing McCall over twelve rounds.  The whole of the UK hailed Frank as King Broooono!!

He was awarded an MBE in 1990.

Famous for his banter with the legendary commentator Harry Carpenter, in 2003 Frank was diagnosed as having Bipolar disorder.  His well-documented illness put Frank in the public eye and he uses this media attention to help with the stigma attached to mental health and to help raise the standards of care given to those suffering from mental health issues.  Frank supports many charities for mental health both financially and with his time.
Frank feels strongly about mental health which is why he set up the charity The Frank Bruno Foundation.
