Early Life: Source Wikipedia

2013

On 23 July, 2013, Bruno was featured in the BBC Three documentary with his daughter Rachel in Rachel Bruno: My Dad and Me.

2012

As of May 2012, Bruno was living in Glasgow with his new hairdresser girlfriend, Nina Coletta in the Gorbals area of the city.

2011

Bruno completed the 2011 London Marathon which is the third marathon he has run successfully. He has also run numerous half marathons. He is also a patron for The Shannon Bradshaw Trust, a children’s charity. Bruno regularly makes personal appearances and also sells autographed items of memorabilia.

2009

On 15 August, 2009, he appeared on The Weakest Link beating Duke McKenzie in the final for £12,800. He had a small role in the 2008 British crime drama Cass. Bruno made brief guest appearances in episodes of the ITV comedy show, Harry Hill’s TV Burp in February and October 2011. On 21 April, 2011, Bruno appeared on the ITV1 chat show The Alan Titchmarsh Show, where he was candid about his previous health issues. In 2011, he made a guest appearance in Sooty. On 20 April, 2012, Bruno was featured in the ITV series Piers Morgan’s Life Stories.

2006

In December 2005, Bruno announced that he was to become a father for the fourth time since finding new romance with old friend Yvonne Clydesdale. The pair, who first met five years previously at a health resort, began dating months after bumping into each other at a wine bar near his home. Yvonne gave birth to baby Freya on 10 May, 2006. On 10 October 2006, Bruno and Clydesdale were jointly awarded £50,000 damages for libel against The People newspaper and publishers MGN in respect of false claims made about their relationship.

In 2006, Bruno published an autobiography Frank: Fighting Back. It won the Best Autobiography category of the British Sports Book Awards.

In 2006, he was one of a number of celebrities who were recorded on the World Cup song, “Who Do You Think You Are Kidding Jurgen Klinsmann?”.

2003

On 22 September, 2003, Bruno was taken from his home near Brentwood in Essex by medical staff assisted by police officers, under the provisions of the Mental Health Act 1983. He was taken to Goodmayes Hospital in Ilford, where he underwent psychological and psychiatric tests. He had been suffering from depression for several months beforehand. He was later diagnosed as having bipolar disorder. On 9 October, 2005, Bruno admitted that cocaine use, which began in 2000, had contributed to his mental health problems. Media coverage of Bruno’s problems raised controversy, the principal accusations being gross intrusion and insensitivity. Particular criticism was aimed at The Sun, whose headline in the first editions the next day read “Bonkers Bruno Locked Up”. Second editions retracted the headline and attempted to portray a more sympathetic attitude towards Bruno and mental health in general. As an attempt at atonement, the paper established a charity fund for people suffering from mental illness, although some mental health charities condemned The Sun’s latter action that day as being grossly cynical in the light of the former. On 24 February, 2008, Bruno offered his support to former footballer Paul Gascoigne, who on 21 February had been sectioned under the Mental Health Act. Bruno also spoke on his own personal experiences in the mental health system at a conference run by Hari Sewell, on 22 June, 2009. Bruno was sectioned again in 2012 and taken to St Andrew’s Hospital in Northampton for five weeks. In December 2013, Bruno spoke to the Daily Mirror in support of their mental health campaign, stating: “Mental illness is a terrible thing to have to cope with but I’ve learnt it’s a fight you can win if you live your life the right way”.

2001

In January 2001, prior to that year’s general election, Bruno announced that he wanted to stand as the Conservative candidate in the traditionally safe Conservative seat of Brentwood and Ongar against the independent Member of Parliament, Martin Bell. His proposed slogan was “Don’t be a plank, vote for Frank!” However, this idea was quickly dismissed by Conservative Central Office. In an interview with BBC Sport at the time, Bruno laughed at the story and denied he had any intention of standing.

1995

On 2 September, 1995, Bruno finally became world champion by outpointing WBC Champion Oliver McCall over twelve rounds. Bruno did not last long as champion – the contract he signed to get McCall meant he had to face Mike Tyson in his first defence. Tyson beat Bruno on a stoppage in round three, Bruno performing unusually poorly in what turned out to be his last bout as a professional, due to a severe eye injury caused by Tyson. Bruno was advised not to fight again to avoid running the risk of causing any more damage to it, which could result in permanent blindness. Bruno retired soon after the fight.

In 1995, the year of his world championship, he released a cover version of “Eye of the Tiger”, the theme song of the movie Rocky III. It reached #28 in the UK charts. In 1999, he featured on the celebrity special in the second season of Fort Boyard.

1993

In 1993, he had a third world title chance against young Lennox Lewis, who was making the second defence of the belt (his first of three championship reigns). The Lennox Lewis vs. Frank Bruno fight was the first time that two British boxers had fought for the world heavyweight title. Lewis beat Bruno on a stoppage in round seven, Bruno again failing to take his title chance after leading the contest on points up until what proved the final round.

In 1993, Bruno briefly appeared as a guest on CITV’s Finders Keepers hosted by Neil Buchanan. The episode aired on Tuesday 30 March that year.

He was the subject of a This is Your Life programme in 1993, when he was surprised by Michael Aspel.

1991

In 1991, he opened “The Ultimate” at Lightwater Valley which was, at the time, the longest roller coaster in the world. He described the ride “scarier than Mike Tyson”.

1989

In February 1989, Bruno challenged Mike Tyson for the undisputed world heavyweight title. In the opening moments, the fighters came together with huge punches. Bruno’s legs buckled, and he took a big step back, inadvertently stepping off the ring apron. Most agree that he would have gone down, at least to a knee in any event, and this was called a knockdown. Bruno did not complain, and instead gathered himself to continue, ultimately rocking Tyson (for the first time in Tyson’s career) with a left hook toward the end of the round. However, Tyson recovered and eventually beat Bruno when the referee stopped the contest in round five with Bruno taking heavy punishment, lying helpless on the ropes.

1987

Bruno once again got himself back into title contention with wins over former contender James Tillis and journeymen Reggie Gross and Chuck Gardner. In October 1987, Bruno faced the veteran Joe Bugner in an all British match up. Bugner although long past his peak, was coming off impressive wins over Greg Page, James Tillis and David Bey. Bruno won by TKO in the 8th round, the referee stopping the bout, although it appeared the protesting Bugner could have continued.

1986

Bruno got back into title contention with an impressive one-round KO win over former WBA champion Gerrie Coetzee of South Africa, and, in July 1986, he challenged Tim Witherspoon for the WBA heavyweight title. After once again leading on the cards for most of the fight, he ran out of steam and was defeated by knockout in round eleven.

1982

Bruno grew up in Wandsworth, South West London. Growing up with five brothers and sisters in a terraced house, Bruno’s mother is Jamaican and his father was Dominican. Bruno got into many street fights during his youth and he began to box seriously while at Oak Hall Reform School in Sussex, an establishment for “problem” children. As an amateur boxer, he amassed a 20-1 career, losing only to Joe Christie while representing the Philip Game Amateur Boxing Club. His amateur career culminated with boxing for Young England and becoming the youngest-ever Amateur British Champion at eighteen years of age. He became a professional boxer in 1982, starting with 21 consecutive wins by knockout. In 1990, Bruno married Laura at a small church in Hornchurch, England. They had two daughters: Nicola and Rachel, and a son, Franklyn. They divorced in 2001.

1981

Bruno became a professional boxer in 1981, quickly achieving 21 consecutive wins by knockout. This streak caught the attention of international boxing magazines, such as The Ring, KO Magazine, Boxing Illustrated and Ring En Español. During this period Bruno defeated former world title contender Scott LeDoux, the fringe contender Floyd Cummings, Belgian champion Rudy Gauwe, British contenders Tony Moore and Eddie Nielson, and opponents such as Bill Sharkey, Walter Santemore and Ken Lakusta. However, in May 1984 the up-and-coming future world heavyweight champion, American James “Bonecrusher” Smith, halted that streak when he defeated Bruno by knockout in the tenth and final round of their bout, with Bruno leading clearly on all three judges’ cards.

1980

Bruno’s image was enhanced by his relationship with the BBC boxing commentator Harry Carpenter, which, in their many interviews, was generated Bruno’s best-known and most-quoted phrases “Know what I mean, Harry?”, his appearances on Comic Relief programmes in the early-1980s and his frequent appearances thereafter on television and on stage (in pantomime).

1961

Franklin Roy “Frank” Bruno, MBE (born 16 November, 1961) is a British former professional boxer who competed from 1982 to 1996. He had a highly publicised and eventful career, both in and out of the ring. The pinnacle of Bruno’s boxing career was winning the WBC heavyweight title from Oliver McCall at a packed Wembley Stadium in 1995, in what was his fourth world championship challenge. Bruno faced multiple top-rated heavyweights throughout his career, including two fights against Mike Tyson in 1989 and 1996, and a domestic clash against Lennox Lewis in 1993.
