King Eugene
I was browsing the web and came across an article about what boxer's have the best nicknames so I decided to bring the topic to the boards and see what you guys think. Right off the bat I'd say:

Jame "Lightsout" Toney
Evander "Real Deal" Holyfield
Riddick "Big Daddy" Bowe
Ray "Boom Boom" Mancini

I've always thought "Galaxy Warrior" was kind of lame.

Sounds like a Spectrum game from the 80's.
Keith
All listed are top notch.

How about the worst? For me.... "The Latin Snake".

It sounds like a homosexual porn star.

"The Pride of Wales"


The Welsh have no pride & the fact they hold up Calzaghe as something to be proud of shows that. That said I have a thing for Charlotte Church. I would do things to her that would get me stoned to death in some countries & hero worshipped in others...

Look at that rack!

JLUVBABY

michael "dynamite" dokes
"the easton assisin" Larry Holmes

"the canadian bearhugger" off super punch out in the arcades. lol...
JLUVBABY
out of curiosity what make the nickname "galaxy warrior" lame?... its not the best nickname but not the worst...
lloyd mayflower
Galaxy Warrior is like calling yourself ninja assassin. It promises more than any man can deliver and thus must result in a let down. You cant just throw two words together to make something that should be super cool and awesome n shit and expect to live up to it.

Also, for worst nicknames, Joshua "the grandmaster" Clottey must be up there

Thats it I am a leader not a follower. I'd lead Charlotte Church to depths of depravity that DeSade never dreamed.

Lance "Goofy" Whitaker was pretty bad.

If you were a boxer, you would obviously pick a nickname that made you sound like a big man, all tough and mean, rather than sounding weak feeble and underdeveloped, so you have to question the motivation of Stevie "2 pound" Forbes

He only weight 2 pounds when he was born.


I like the KO Kid.

Why does every Irish fighter have to be "Irish" ? Imagine if everyone did that ? Miguel "Puerto Rican" Cotto, Juan "Mexican" Marquez, Sam "African" Peter. Using your nationality as a nickname should be banned.

Well Africa is a continent, not a nation, and "The Nigerian Nightmare" isn't really too far off, if at all.
JD

No these guys are the best. The best of the best that is.


HaydelHammer
another lame one IMO was DaVarryl "TOUCH OF SLEEP" Williamson and Tony "THE PUNCHING POSTMAN" Thornton. wtf seriously.

"THUNDER" Gatti was kinda lame to me also...thunder? I don't know why this nickname didn't vibe with me.

I liked Iran "THE BLADE" Barkley since this dude looked the part of a guy that would pull one on you and rob your a$$.

White Buffalo and Black Rhino are all timers.
lloyd mayflower
The punching postman can be trumped in boxing nicknames by Rendall "The Binman" Munroe

rusty_trombone
I always liked the "hispanic who causes panic", i forget the guys name though.
Fitz
Juan Lazcano. I mentioned it in one of my earlier posts. Great nickname.

I always liked 'Kid Diamond'. Had a real good ring to it. I hated it when he changed it to 'Dr. Evil'. That was terrible.

Ditto on that. Kid Diamond was mint. Dr. Evil was horrendously corny.
