Scariest Boxing Nicknames You Know Of?

"Two Ton" Tony Galento, Luis " Wild Bull of the Pampas" Firpo, John " The Beat" Mugabi, Frank " The Animal" Fletcher, "Caveman" Lee, " Young Terror", please name as many you know of..


I was thinking more of the rarely-heard of or uncommon scariest nicknames that would immediately conjure up frightful images of the boxer as my examples suggest. The Ghost with a Hammer is certainly a good one. Vinnie Pazienza was once known as the Pazmanian Devil but the cartoon character Tas ( for Tasmanian Devil ) took out some of the scare away. I hope to hear more from our bloggers on this. Thanks!

    Wilbert Vampire Johnson. The name itself is right out of a horror movie. What else could be scarier? He was a bizarre character and not much more than clubfighter status however he was entertaining.

    'Big Bear' Sonny Liston. 'Brown Bomber' Joe Louis, 'Galveston Giant' Jack Johnson. Thomas 'Hitman' Hearns.

    For me, the scariest is Bhop's "The Executioner". Also just a random monicker - "The Butcher".
