“As far as these robes are concerned they are very special and lots like this rarely come onto the open market."
London (PRWEB UK) 17 October 2015
Estimated to fetch between £5000 and £6000 per robe in an upcoming online auction, which all come direct from Frank Bruno's agent, the proceeds from any sales will go towards his own charity - The Presidents Sporting Club/Essex Disabled Sports Foundation (Registered Charity No.1001176).
The charity has already raised well over £2 million which has been donated to schools and organisations to provide opportunities for disabled children.
Auctioneer Mark Stacey of Stacey's Auctioneers& Valuers says:
“As far as these robes are concerned they are very special, and lots like this rarely come onto the open market. It is a great opportunity for a boxing fan to secure unique memorabilia such as this. It will be a privilege to sell these lots at auction for such a worthwhile cause as the Essex Disable Sport Foundation.”
The online auction which starts at 10:30am on Monday 19th October and will include:

In the last round of 10 with Bruno ahead on points Smith famously got Bruno on the ropes and it was stopped prompting premature headlines like "Another British Bubble is Burst". Lovely hooded blue gown with white trim. Frank Bruno and Nike to front.

Frank wore this in his entrance to his 21st fight v Cumming at the Royal Albert Hall on 11/10/1983. Black material with Silvery White glossy trim and lettering stating Frank Bruno to rear.

Frank Bruno wore this on his entrance to one of his most critical fights which was the first one after his defeat to Bonecrusher Smith on 25/9/1984 at Wembley.

Nike and Frank Bruno to front and is stunning. Direct from Frank Bruno’s agent.
