Bruno tells Haye to button his lip


Recommended Posts

Frank Bruno has urged David Haye to rein in his trash talking and has warned the WBA heavyweight champion it would be folly to underestimate challenger Audley Harrison.


Harrison and Haye have been involved in serious verbal sparring sessions in recent weeks and former world champion Bruno feels the champion has overstepped the mark on occasions. Bruno is a fan of Haye's boxing qualities and would prefer to see him dedicating his time to training rather than running his mouth off.


"I like David Haye, I like his style," Bruno told Sky Sports News. "I don't like the way he is rabbiting on about certain different things, but I am not his manager, his dad, or his guru.


"The way that he is jumping around saying certain things, I would like him to cool it down a little bit as it gives boxing a bad name."


Haye and Harrison will step into the ring in Manchester next month and Bruno feels the challenger's size advantage could tip the balance in his favour.


"He is a good fighter," Bruno said of Haye. "But Audley Harrison, you have to look at the credibility of the guy. He is a southpaw, he is natural heavyweight and with that left hand he can connect. That sways my way, but as a natural heavyweight he is more underestimated than other people give him credit for.


"He has a good pedigree I am going to go for Audley Harrison, but I hope the best man wins."
