Editor Matt Christie authors a heartfelt column on the desire of Frank Bruno to make an comeback and says boxing still needs the heavyweight hero

Editor Matt Christie address the Frank Bruno desire for a comeback in this week’s issue of Boxing News magazine. This is out now on our app and the print version is in stores on Thursday (February 4). Here is an excerpt in Brook’s own words.

BRUNO’S demons will not let leave him alone, that much is clear. The solution, sadly, is not. He has spent longer trying to find peace than he did pursuing the world title, and his recent pleas to fight sound like a cry for help that should not be ignored. Bruno’s best chance of survival, real survival, is finding the strength to accept that he will never fight again. He can be welcomed back, but as a trainer, or perhaps as a counsellor who many will look to when the nightmare of retirement takes hold. Without question, Frank Bruno still has plenty to offer boxing.
