    Beats 'The turd who came third' I suppose. ( Not a dig at DW btw; I would have made that comment about anybody with that nickname)

    Funny thing with Foreman, I agree btw, Is that 'Awesome George Foreman' , scans and works beautifully for me. It's totally my own, I've never even mentioned it before. Doesn't exactly fit into standard conversation, whatever level brow. But thought for decades how that could work, aligned with the fighters style, size, accomplishments and *power*. Just surprised it wasn't thought of.. and or considered... and or used.

    Michael ‘Second to’ Nunn was a catchy nickname but was only relevant if he remained unbeaten.

    Any nonsense Dave Allen has come up with.

    'AJ'.

    'Dean Whyte'.

    Tyson '2 Fast' Fury.

    'Pricey'

    Anthony 'Sugar Ray Clay Jones Jr' Small.

    Those are just my British picks.

    Yep that has to be one of the worst, Chagaev was just like Tyson only minus the aggression, speed, power, skill, technique, excitement and charisma, so yeah, just like him.

    Anybody mentioned Johnny Nelson's old nickname 'The Entertainer' ???

    Nah, still on the crayons and paints, but still able to recognise a highly original put down. Oh and I'm English btw--so please insult me with a bit of class and transatlantic knowledge; My brain is nursery level, not Kindergarten level--in your mind anyway--cheeky *******. (bloody esbabies these days!)

    Im not trying to disparage you. "Awesome" is about as tacky and unoriginal as a nickname could get. I cant tell if youre being serious or not

    I typed out a long answer, almost complete, and my crappy old PC crashed and I lost it before completion and sending. Can't be the first person it's happened to, but deflating and devastating. I'll get back to you tomorrow Shad. Too crestfallen to go on mate. Seriously btw, not a joke or swerve. Does your head in when that happens

    Usyk had 10 times as many amateur fights as Wilder, and Usyk lost to Russo in the same Olympics and didn't medal. Was Usyk a sad joke, too?
