BASIL FRANCIS: MR. UNIVERSE. MR. WORLD: The Man Mountain


Giant 270lb (123 Kg) Basil Francis pumped and posed for us in this 'muscle worship' tape shot on the day after he won the NABBA Amateur Universe overall title. He has also won a Professional Mr. World title, Mr. Britain, Mr. Europe and top EFBB British titles and more.

As an ex-Rugby football player, who scared most opponents off the field, this is a man-mountain at a height of 6'2" (190 cms). Basil is a huge man with genuine 22" arms and is one of England's most popular bodybuilders of all time. Many contest highlights are included as Basil competes with his peers.

1987
There were 3 huge events in September 1987. On the 12th it was the NABBA Amateur Universe won overall by Basil.
Then on September 19th in Antwerp it was the NABBA Worlds and Basil won tall class 1 and lost the overall to Olev Annus.
Next weekend on 26th September in UK it was the Amateur Super Body Power Classic with the NABBA Pro Mr Universe.

Basil was entered for the Pro Universe but deciding not to go up against Annus again, the eventual Pro winner, and entered the Super Body Power Cassic instead. Basil won his class and then won overall Mr SBP of 1987. I did not put out a separate video on this amateur event but will put out a lightly edited version if requested.
Most of the top competitors were in the Amateur Universe video from 2 weeks before.

My editing notes from the event show that I did use odd segments of my footage from the '87 SBP Classic in various individual features. The segment showing Basil posing and winning the SBP was used in Men of Muscle #1 DVD which is GMV-196DVD, click here for details.

1988
I did put out a Super Body Power video which was GMV-084, sold out on VHS and hence was never shown on our site. Will fix that as soon as possible. See it one day on DVD!

That same event had the 1988 NABBA Pro Universe contest as the main event and Basil made his Pro debut that day. He placed a very good 3rd in a very hot field where the results were as follows:

1 Charles Clairmonte
2 Jerry Scalesse
3 Basil Francis
4 Marlon Darton
5 Eugene Laviscount
6 Jeff King
7 Rufus Howard

Photos below were taken during the making of the DVD.
