After his gruelling world title fight with Oliver McCall- My head looks like ET gone wrong.
Frank Bruno (1995)
After winning the world title at the fourth attempt- Frank, you deserve a knighthood, or maybe even Lord of the Rings.
Desmond Lynam Sportsnight BBC TV (1995)
Before the Tyson rematch - Frank Bruno has a chin of such pure Waterford crystal, it gives rise to the old adage that people who live in glass jaws shouldn't throw punches. The biggest danger in fighting Bruno is that you might get hit by flying glass.
Jim Murray Los Angeles Times (1996)
Bruno still sounds like another British heavyweight, reminding us of Dorothy Parker's line: 'If all the British heavyweights were laid end to end, we wouldn't be surprised.'
Ring magazine

Frank Keating The Guardian (1988)
Frank Bruno says I'm chicken. Well you can tell him I've come home to roost.
Joe Bugner (1988)

Jim Jacobs (1988)
On rumours that Oliver McCall failed to provide a drug test urine sample after his defeat by Frank Bruno - Anyone who studied McCall's contribution to the fight would not have been surprised that he failed to hit a sample tube with the required amount afterwards. Bruno, of course, had no such trouble. He is well used to having the piss taken out of him by his fellow countrymen.
Peter Corrigan Independent on Sunday (1995)
On winning the world title - It was like a Michael Jackson concert, Pavarotti, Vera Lynn and VE-Day, all rolled into one.
Frank Bruno Sportsnight BBC TV (1995)
Since I didn't want to go round mugging old ladies or robbing banks, I took up boxing.
Frank Bruno
