    Maybe "The Hitman"? Hearns and Hatton combined won a lot of titles.

    "Cobra". You have the Cincinnati Cobra (Ezzard Charles), Motor City Cobra (Thomas Hearns), Lone Star Cobra (Donald Curry), and just Cobra (Carl Froch).

    This is hard to top. Sugar Ray, Sugar Ray, Sugar Shane and Sugar Nik. Unbelievable dominance between them.

    I just laughed at that Nikolai Valuev part. I had no idea he was referred to as "sugar".

    I am assuming that this is an informal nickname given to him by boxing fans. Is that the case?

    A lot of former champions were nicknamed "Kid".

    Yes. It was actually started on this specific forum, I believe (originally coined by our very own @Boxed Ears perhaps?) and then spread across the boxing web.
