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 with 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 gentelman’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 on the comeback trail.

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.”
