I always liked some of those nicknames they used with their names. 

Here are some:

James "Quick" Tillis
James "Bonecrusher" Smith
Aaron "The Hawk" Pryor
John "The Beast" Mugabi
Carl "The Truth" Williams
Tommy "The Hitman" Hearns
Roberto "Hands of Stone" Duran


What was Tony Ayala, Jr.'s nickname?  Wasn't it The Baby Bull or El Toro?

One thing I do while researching wrestling cards on Google news is the read the articles about Ali.
