A bit of both really. In his 45 fight career he went 40 wins with 38 by KO and 5 losses, all by KO. Also, he only saw the final bell in 3 of those fights, so his power saved him in 38 of them and his chin let him down in 5.

Hard to pick with the above information. Just how many of those wins may have gone the other way if his opponents took him deep in fight to the final bell------we'll never know.

Sorry gumbo, maths has never been my strong point, where did the 3rd final bell come from?

I stand corrected. He saw the last round in 4 fights but didn't hear the final bell in 2. He lost one by KO in the final round and won one by KO in the final round.

Say what you want about him, but he was fun to watch.

I don't think his chin was as terrible as people make out. It's more a lack of boxing fundamentals, technique and IQ. You're feeling it if a top heavyweight hits you flush. Bruno was very raw and powerful. Muscles and might over boxing ability.

He gassed so bad during the McCall fight. I picked stamina.
