What do you think the worst, least intimidating nickname was? I would have to say Michael Spinks's was "the Spinks Jinx". Ive never liked that nick name, I don't like Jermain Taylor's either which is "Bad Intensions Jermain Taylor" which I think is also cheezie.

Lance " Goofi" Whitiker -- does this really need explaining ??

Oleg "The Big O" Maskev -- I think Fres oquendo did this one too. Horrible

Wlad "Steal Hammer" Klitschko -- Sounds like a cheesy action movie

There are too many to name, though I do beleive that Goofi is it.

I don't mind that one, its just not intimidating. It almost gives you the wrong idea if youve never heard of him.

Or how about Carl "the truth" Williams.
I was thinking about that one! I mean... what does "THE TRUTH" mean... the truth is he was knocked out in 90 seconds by Mike Tyson way back in the year 1989!!!

Some times they get stuck with dumb names like Gentleman JIm Corbett or Carl the truth Williams. I feel sorry for them when they get stuck with bad nick names like that.

Who do you think comes up with them? The fighters themselves or all of those goddamned 'Spin Doctors'??

I don't know. Larry Holmes got his nickname (the Easton Assasin) from his manager Richie Giacheti.

I really like "The Jinx" Michael Spinks. His introduction from Michael Buffer was one of the bests.

I think Bad Intentions is ok aswell for Jermaine Taylor. Ronald "Winky" Wright is a great nickname aswell.

One that I really HATE is "Big O" like.. what the fk?

I honestly had no problem with Corbett's name. The name that they called Bob Fitzsimmons is kind of silly. Ruby Robert the Freckled Wonder. While we are on the topic of nicknames, I have recently come up with a nickname for me when I start my professional boxing career. tell me what you think (don't be afriad to speak your mind, because trust me, i will not get offended). Andrew "The Swedish Meatball" Jackson.
