Frank Bruno vs. Mike Tyson (1989)

In 1989 Frank Bruno, fighting out of Wandsworth, faced Mike Tyson for the Undisputed Heavyweight Championship of the World.
Despite being rocked in the opening moments Bruno rallied through the round and shook Tyson with a left hook in the closing moments, echoing Henry Cooper's famous blow on Cassius Clay so many years before.
Unfortunately Bruno's fight continued to echo Cooper's efforts with the fight being stopped in the fifth round in Tyson's favour.
