64. Hoped I'd get more than that. My mind went completely blank on a few. Couldn't even think of Ezzard Charles or Fernando Vargas, and missed Gatti's and a couple of others, and couldn't spell 'Homicide' properly so ****ed up Armstrong's aswell.

Did this when posted in the GF. Made it to high 70's before peeking.

I kept putting in "Tony" and "El 7 Mares" for Margarito and getting rejected...

"Tijuana Tornado". When's the last time anybody called him that?

Gatti took me a while...kept trying different combinations of "blood & guts warrior", "blood and guts", "blood + guts" etc.

Got 54 just. Some of those guys had more than 1 nickname so there should be double points for that i think e.g. Larry Holmes has been introduced as 'The black cloud' as well as 'The easton assassin'. Maybe im making excuses for having not so great a score

A lot of them accepted multiple answers, ie Acorn or Black Destroyer. It's whatever the people who compiled the list felt were their most recognizable or "iconic" ring names, I guess.

Got 79 but i would have got more damn scrolling down back and forth takes too much time. Plus some where just hard how the hell do i know if Tyson likes Phil collins? and .you just plain have to cheat to know some of this. like go to boxing records or something. some just wrong if they are talking about the great white hype well i dont think that was based on Cooney more like Mcnelley.

Oh.

Jesus Soto Karass lets them billboard his ass, too.

I thought it was some kind of fraternal Mexican or Capetillo-stable inside reference.
