Isn' it funny how there were certain fighters whom you never spoke of without including their nickname. I have never spoken the names Andy Price, Carl Williams, Bebis Rojas, Eugene Hart and George Johnson without including the nicknames The Hawk, The Truth, Sugar Baby, Cyclone and Scrapiron. In the case of Rojas I didn't even know his real name, I had to look it up. As for the best name, I always laughed at Barry "Bunches of Punches" Funches. Of course, there are always some that are made fun of like Jose "The Threat" Baret. After he was KO'd by Marlon Starling they started calling him Jose "Not Yet" Baret or Jose "No Sweat" Baret. But the goofiest has to be when Lance Whitaker, very briefly changed his ring name altogether to "Goofi". I still recall laughing when Larry Merchant stated flatly, that that name was just goofy. LOL!
