Frank Bruno ‘Gloves Off’ Documentary (2005)

A very insightful documentary following the career of one of Britain’s most popular sportsmen, Frank Bruno. Following the height of his career in 1994-1995, when he finally fulfilled his dream by becoming the Heavyweight Champion of the World, Bruno’s life spiralled out of control after suffering defeat to Mike Tyson in his very first defence of the title. Bruno retired soon after the fight and what occured in the subsequent years is almost unbelievable. Frank actually ended up being sectioned under the mental health act following some bizarre behaviour. A really sad story because nobody can possibly dislike Frank Bruno. A real gentleman with an incredible sense of humour. Thankfully he is a lot better these days, which is great to see.
