None of the above were bangers.
Bomber Graham got his nickname for bombing around (running fast) when he was younger, it made perfect sense.

Paul Malignaggi being the Magic Man. There is nothing magic about him and Marlon Starling had the name first.

BTW, did Bruno ever have a nickname?
Iron Boy = Calderon

Frank Bruno's nickname was Bruno, pronounced with a long o at the end and an accent on the first syllable, chanted several times while drunk and British.

Bruno's nickname was 'Bomber', which suited him; unlike Lennox 'The Lion' Lewis; that simply did not work.

Lennox Lewis was a nickname in its own right. No need for anything to ruin that fine alliterative flow.

'Bionic' Billy Bagget

An entertainer in the sense that he used to read the paper between rounds/have a cup of tea/ look at the racing as if picking out a bet, but he was definitely NOT bionic boxing-wise.

Funny guy though who i woulda paid to see even if he wasnt good enough at domestic level
