BOXING fans have called for Frank Bruno vs Mike Tyson III after Bruno showed off his incredible physique on social media.
Tyson, 53, is on the comeback trail and has been seen working hard in the gym in recent weeks, looking sharper and better than he has done for years.

But former world champ Bruno, who fought Iron Mike twice at the peak of his powers, has given the American a run for his money.
Fans’ favourite Bruno, 58, shared an impressive image of him punching a heavy bag while looking in lean condition with his back ripped and muscles bulging.
Hard-hitting Bruno, who won the WBC belt at Wembley Stadium in 1995, simply wrote: “Evening workout.”
His many fans were quick to praise his shape, with fellow former world champ Barry McGuigan writing: “Looking great Frank, keep it going champ.”
Legendary announcer Michael Buffer added: “Sir Frank is and always has been the gentleman’s gentleman.
“It’s always a thrill for me to see the huge fan reaction, the love, that he gets from the crowd when I introduce him in attendance at ringside!”
Phil G wrote: “Fetch the sellotape, Frank’s ripped!!”
Inevitably, fans wondered if Bruno was himself looking to make a comeback.
The Londoner has not fought since losing his title to Tyson by third-round TKO in Las Vegas in 1996.
That bout with Tyson came seven years after a fifth-round TKO, also in Las Vegas, in a unification title fight in which Tyson was truly rocked for the first time in his career.
Now, 24 years after their last meeting, fans want to see a trilogy match.
Woodinho wrote: “Are you taking on Tyson again?!”
4eva West Ham added: “Reckon you could take Tyson on Champ.”
While Ian said “Legend, Tyson rematch 3.”

Earlier on Wednesday, Bruno also wrote a touching tribute to Willie Thorne, following the snooker legend’s sad death.
“A huge shock to see my old friend Willie Thorne has died,” he wrote.
“Not only a prolific snooker player but also a real character, we spent a number of years on different sporting TV programmes the last few years.
“He will be greatly missed by all that knew him.”
