When you know the context of it, it's actually one of the cleverer nicknames in Boxing history. Much better than 'Money' in my opinion.

I have no problem with 'Sugar' Shane Mosley or with Ricky 'Hitman' Hatton.

'The Golden Boy' suited DLH to the ground, from his Olympic medal, to his ten world titles, to his box office appeal.
