    Nicknames

    I was wondering as to what are these boxer's nicknames. I looked up some sites and found these. If you can help me add to the list....

    Ahmed - babyface
    Jesse - The entertainer
    Anthony - The determined father
    Joey - The rookie
    Alfonso - The underdog
    Sergio - The brains
    Peter - The comeback kid
    I'm so acrophobic, I fainted when I first tried on a pair of socks.

    Wait, are you talking about their ring nicknames, like "Iron" Mike Tyson? Evander "Real Deal" Holyfield? If you are, the only one that I know of is Sergio "The Latin Snake" Mora.

    As for "determined father" or "comeback kid," etc., when I first start watching a reality show to recap it, I give them nicknames before I bother to learn their names, like "Bald Guy" or "Big-Tattoo Girl."

    I don't know why people call Anthony "Harry" - maybe because he is? But Tommy and Anthony have called Jesse "Stinkley"

    I'm not sure where these nicknames came from either, but the TV station that airs The Contender here in Asia use them too. The only one I can add is Najai's. They call him "The One Who Died". That's really sad...
