Was watching a rebroadcast of Lewis Bruno last night and in the voice over on Espn Classic, a comment was made of Tommy Morrison and it got me thinking...What if Morrison ever squared off with Bruno. Who's chin goes first? Which fighters subpar stamina will become a factor in the bout first?
Could Bruno catch Tommy early in the manner that Micheal Bentt did? Absolutely. What happens if Morrison opens up on Bruno early and has JUUUUUST enought stamina at about the 6 round mark when Frank begins to wilt? Will he be able to finish the day? Would Tommy go all out, as he almost has to? Would his boxing, that he showed in the Foreman fight allow him to win a distance fight?
Could this turn into a borefest ala Bonecrusher Bruno?
My initial reaction would be to take Bruno mid rounds, especially if he can hold up to Morrison's punches. But I could see Morrison taking out Bruno dramatically ala the Rudduck bout as well. Eye closing, looking like he's wearing down and all of a sudden, big hook and Frank falls apart.
That's going to be my call. Morrison is all over Frank early, but can't put the right punches together and Frank seems to be outlasting the quick paced Morrison and starts to take over in the 5th and 6th rounds. Frank is laying some good leather on Morrison and seems to be coming on when a hook out of no where catches Frank on the button and he falls back into the ropes and Tommy unloads on him until the ref calls a halt or Frank is the loser on a late 6th round tko due to the 3 knockdown rule being in effect.
I think this could be a corker.
