Frank Bruno teaches UK how to 'goggle box'


Ahead of Joshua vs Klitschko this weekend, Frank Bruno has been recruited by TalkTalk TV to teach the nation a new type of boxing. The former World (WBC) and European heavyweight champion is joined by his son Franklin in a new tutorial video to teach the nation how to "goggle box" when they watch the big fight from a different corner – their armchairs.

As boxing fans prepare to shout at the TV, question the boxers' tactics and berate the referee's decisions, Frank shares his advice on pre-match preparation, embracing the passion and cooling down after. "I've been known to get up and shout, or body pop and breakdance as if I'm in the ring myself," Bruno reveals.

As with any armchair boxers, both Frank and his son Franklin have given their predictions on Joshua's chances, with both backing the young Brit. "I think Anthony Joshua has got a good chance," said Frank. "He's got youth on his side, he's a very powerful puncher and could potentially knock Klitschko out very early. Klitschko is a great fighter though, with a lot more rounds under his belt, so you never know."

This weekend sees the biggest fight in recent memory, as Joshua looks to defend both his unbeaten record and IBF heavyweight title against former champion Klitschko. In front of 90,000 fans at Wembley Stadium the two will come to blows for the vacant WBA (Super) and WBO heavyweight titles.

From 6:00pm on Saturday 29 April, TalkTalk TV customers can watch every punch, jab and knockout blow on channel 416 for Britain's lowest price of just £17.95.
