Highlight of Frank Bruno's career!
McCall was a tough champion, beat Lennox Lewis, strong, awkward, bulldog like fighter, but Bruno was able to use his jab, use his size, and having prepared well for the fight, he was able to win the belt from him.
This was one of the highs of British boxing, Bruno was very popular, he is best known for losing to Mike Tyson and Lennox Lewis, but people were always behind him, and in this fight, his hard work paid off, and he became a world champion.

In the early rounds, in the first half, the jab was the point scoring difference, it was fast, it was well utilised, and even when that jab didn't land, it kept McCall moving, kept him at distance, and at times, stopped him in his tracks.

In the late rounds, there was a lot of holding, wrestling, the majority of the time, Bruno overpowered McCall, as the bigger, stronger fighter, but McCall, particularly in that last round, certainly applied his own pressure, when Bruno tried to take a rest, McCall was good at coming in swinging, not with much offensive method, but an awkward target to hit, and his inside fighting ability worked well. Whenever he found the right distance, Bruno was abke to fire that hard 1, 2, and sometimes get in the hook involved, it landed clean, and with power, often McCall would throw more shots, do more for the duration of some late rounds, but not with real quality, and he wasn't able to really have a dominant rally against Bruno the way he probably thought he could against a fighter who gasses, and a fighter who has come apart before when pushed back.

This was a great performance from Frank Bruno, and you have to be happy to look back at this fight and see big old Frank win his world title!
