Fighters Swap Insults

LAS VEGAS () -- As if defending the World Boxing Council heavyweight championship and "flying the flag for England" weren't enough, Frank Bruno has found something else to fire him up for his fight Saturday against Mike Tyson.


It is something Tyson said earlier in the day Monday: that he felt Bruno "in his heart" did not believe he could knock Tyson out.


"He's on a different planet," Bruno said angrily at a news conference after a public workout in preparation for his scheduled 12-round WBC title defense. "Who does Tyson think he is?


"Deep, deep down, I don't think Tyson's ready, and he has nowhere to run," said Bruno.


"Tyson's been in prison for three years and has only had 10 minutes in the ring. It can't be beneficial for him. It can be beneficial for me."
