I think "Smokin'" Joe Fraizer is an excellent nickname.
The worst has to be "Fast" Eddie Chambers, don't know why I just despise it.

Anthony "Sugar Ray Clay Jones Jr" Small is probably the worst nickname by far, but yea I agree "fast" isn't the best of names lol.

Don't really have a favourite nick name.

I think 'Fast' Eddie is a take on 'Fast' Eddie Felson, a movie character played by Paul Newman in The Hustler. 'Fast' Eddie was a pool hustler. So I think the meaning of the name is a little deeper than you may think. I think it means that the 'opponent' may think he can beat me, but in the end I will out slick you, out fight you, and ultimately, out 'hustle' you. In the end, I will be victorious. Just my opinion. Any rebuttle?

Worst was Sam "Boston Tar Baby" Langford. Seriously? Why not just call him Sam "The Punching N_gger" Langford? That would be practically just as politically correct.

He also went under Boston Terror or Bonecrusher which is actually pretty cool as far as some names go.

I always disliked ''sweet pea''

Wikipedia says this :

As a youngster, Whitaker was known to friends and family as "Pete", and when he began to emerge as a top amateur, fans in his hometown of Norfolk used to serenade him with chants of "Sweet Pete." This was misinterpreted by a local sportswriter as "Sweet Pea", and when this erroneous report came out in the local newspaper, the new nickname stuck.

I dislike names like Dariusz ''tiger'' Michalkzewski too, thAT'S just so cliché

Hands of stone/ manos de pedra is one of the best

Michael second to Nunn is pretty cool too

I may be wrong, but I don't believe Louis ever anointed himself with a nickname. Newspapers began calling him "The brown bomber, The tan terror" and other such ames that I don't recall at the moment. I guess that doesn't make it any better a nickname though. :dunno:

Not only the worst nickname I've ever heard (so bad even the announcers feel embarrassed saying it).
But probably one of the worst boxers I've ever seen.
