He suffered an eye injury which led to him having to retire following his 1996 defeat to Mike Tyson. 

Frank has also revealed how former opponent James Bone Crusher Smith – who was one of only three men to beat Bruno – is also keen on a rematch.

Revealing the offers on social media Frank, who now runs a mental health charity the Frank Bruno Foundation, said: “My office gets some interesting calls.

"Today, do I want an exhibition match with James Bone-Crusher Smith.

"Two weeks ago it was Roy Jones Jr. I would love to fight but my eyes are not good and sadly we had to decline. I am disappointed.”

Frank’s comments come amid reports two of his former opponents are planning to lock horns. 

According to reports Tyson wants to step in the ring with Lennox Lewis. 

Tyson recently declared himself ‘invincible’ following his successful return to the ring last year.

The former undisputed heavyweight champion returned to the squared circle last November for an exhibition bout against Jones Jr.

Tyson’s clash with the four-weight champ ended in a draw, although the 54-year-old turned in a much better performance than expected.

And Iron Mike still feels on top of the world after getting himself back in shape and back in the ring.

During a recent episode of his Hotboxin’ with Mike Tyson podcast, he said: “F**k the comeback.

“Everybody knew I was in the gutter, everybody knew I was doing dope, it’s about this.

“I want to be up more than anybody in the f***ing world deep down.

“No one can stop me, I’m invincible.”

Tyson was in talks over a trilogy fight with former rival Evander Holyfield later this year.

But The Real Deal has agreed to box Kevin McBride, the man who retired Tyson in 2005.

Tyson has since claimed he’s set to have a rematch with Lennox Lewis, telling TMZ: “I’m going to fight Lennox Lewis. Yeah, September.”

The last undisputed heavyweight champion of the world told TMZ: “If the public wanted it then we would probably talk.

“I don’t know. I don’t really have nothing pushing me in the ring right now.

Lewis recently confirmed talks over a blockbuster bout are underway, saying: “We’re talking.”

Lewis, 55, is open to the fight but admits he has no real motivation to get back inside the ring.

“People would love to see that fight but I don’t know.”

Tyson and Lewis fought one another 19 years ago at the Memphis Pyramid in Tennessee.

Lewis came out of the bad-blooded contest on top, knocking out Tyson to retain the WBC, IBF, IBO, The Ring, and lineal heavyweight titles.
