"Hands of Stone" - Roberto Duran Report Abuse
If you're a boxer, could you get a better nickname? Duran was known as one of the hardest hitters ever in the sport and this nickname illustrates that fact quite well.

Iron Mike -- Mike Tyson Report Abuse
I admit its not the coolest or best sounding nickname, but it was the perfect moniker for the man who tore through the heavyweight division like no one before or since. Its short, sweet, and labels him as a tough as nails Bad Ass.

"The Count of Monte Fisto" - Apollo Creed Report Abuse
I know he wasn't a real person but this nickname is too awesome to leave off. In fact, some boxer should steal this name right away. I know I would.

Joe was a tough brawler who was a no nonsense guy. He could knock your head off with that left hook if your not careful.

Lew “The Living Death” Jenkins Report Abuse
Honestly, would YOU want to fight a guy people called “The Living Death”? Boxing nicknames are supposed to be either clever or scary. This is one of the better scary ones.

Butterbean -- Eric Esche Report Abuse
Yes, he sucks as a boxer, but did you even know what his real name was? Me either. Its a funny nickname and if you've ever seen this obese white guy with the shaved head you know that no name has a fit a person better.
