Tyson Fury will be ‘dinner’ in the heavyweight era of Mike Tyson and Lennox Lewis, says British hero Frank Bruno
FRANK BRUNO claims Tyson Fury will be ‘dinner’ in his classic heavyweight era.

Now the current champion Fury has built a relationship and friendship with British boxing symbols.
But that didn’t stop Bruno from admitting the Gypsy King would have no depth in his generation.
Talk to DAZN, he said, “Deep down in his heart he knows if he’s around me during my day, they’ll eat him for dinner and breakfast too.
“I’m not going to sit here and disrespect Tyson Fury, but we’re talking about a different era. He’s living on a different cloud than I’m on.
“Good luck to him, he’s number one, he deserves to be number one. I have a lot of respect for him. “
Fury, 33, most recently knocked out Deontay Wilder, 33, in the 11th round of their epic October movie trilogy.
And with Anthony Joshua, 32, set to face a rematch with Oleksandr Usyk, 34, after his loss in September, an undisputed decision No card for now.
Instead, the WBC ordered Fury to defend his belt against longtime rival and mandatory challenger Dillian Whyte, 33.
Not since Bruno’s 1993 loss to Lewis, 56, in Cardiff, England has had such a blockbuster domestic world title war.
Bruno, 60, said: “It was a good game, Dillian Whyte was very strong. Tyson Fury is dangerous and canned.
“What he learns, Dillian Whyte won’t know, it’s going to break him down. If you [Whyte] hit Fury, he will fall to the floor.
“Tyson Fury will show him some movement and annoy him. He can adapt.
“If you are south, he can go south, if you dig deep, he can dig deep.
“He fought the most dangerous man on the planet, Deontay Wilder, who threw his toys out of the cart.”
