Frank Bruno has announced his intention to return to boxing… At the age of 54. The former heavyweight champion revealed the news on This Morning to hosts Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield.
Bruno beat Oliver McCall at Wembley to claim the WBC heavyweight title more than 20 years ago but he now wants a return to the ring. And despite his age, he feels that he wants a return.
‘I’ve been in the gym all the time, that’s why I want to come back into boxing,’ he said. ‘I’m going back into boxing as well.’

When asked if that was a good idea, he replied: ‘I haven’t got a choice. I train every day.’ Bruno was diagnosed with bipolar disorder in 2003 and it would be very unlikely that he would be granted a license by the British Boxing Board of Control.
