Bruno Quits Ring

LONDON () -- Former world heavyweight boxing champion Frank Bruno reluctantly quit the ring Friday after an eye specialist told him a single punch could leave him blind.


Bruno, 34, who lost his World Boxing Council crown to Mike Tyson in March, said he was in shock over the forced retirement.


"I never wanted to end like this, but at the end of the day I'm glad I had a good innings," said Bruno, who was only the third Briton to hold a world heavyweight title.


Bruno had been back in training and was hoping to have another shot at the world title he won last September but lost on his first defense.
