no offense to dlh fans, but "the golden boy" sounds kinda gay. and if you consider ali's nickname as "the greatest", that sounds corny to me.

no mention of mike "the bodysnatcher" mccallum?

here's a few somewhat wierd nicknames i've heard from the early days of boxing:

harry "the harlem thunderbolt" smith
edward "unknown" smith
edward "bearcat" wright
joe "the king of the middleweights" butler
young peter jackson "the baltimore demon"
amos "mysterious billy" smith
"big" bill hartwell "the kansas tornado"
homer "the black ghost" robertson
"the black thunderbolt" kid norfolk
billy "the black demon" wilson
harry "the black panther" wills
frank craig "the harlem coffee cooler"

The Manassa Mauler. Hands down. It actually relates to Dempsey, and is the perfect nickname for him.

The Brockton Blockbuster is another great one.
