The Power Double - Dude's a boxer named Clay. Not really sure what else you'd expect. It would basically be rude not to have that as his nickname Phone Post 3.0
Exactly.

I'd be quite offended if he walked around with anything BUT Cassius. Phone Post 3.0

DoubleWhiskey - I find it hard to believe not a single person close to Clay Collard has told him, "Hey, Clay... MAYBE "Cassius" isn't the best nickname for a caucasian rookie fighter."
Lol maybe you should go tell him to change it Phone Post 3.0

I think we should do a U.G fund raiser for OP to fly to Cassius' gym and tell him, to his face, to change his nickname because he isn't worthy. Also, it needs to be documented via video.

Cassius is a European name.
which is in a roundabout way why Ali changed it.

I get what you're saying though... but 'Cassius Clay Collard' has a nice ring to it... would be hard to resist.
Also it may be 'just a first name' & 'just another fighter's name' but it's one with mythic status in fighting circles so it still works.

Yes how rude of a white boxer to not use Muhammad's slave name as his nickname... Phone Post 3.0

I enjoyed watching the kid fight. I was, however, surprised that a fighter with that much boxing was winging out punches like that...often off- balance with his hands low Phone Post 3.0

StocktonStickerSlap - I think it's weird seeing cassius clay t shirts or anything like that. Muhammad hated having that name, which is why he changed it. Phone Post 3.0
Technically he hated the name "Clay" since that was the slave owners name and forced upon his ancestors. Cassius was given to him by his parents, and therefore didn't have the same negative connotations. Phone Post 3.0
Why you good sir, are welcome back here Phone Post 3.0

How do you know he wasn't just called that in his gym, so it naturally became his nickname? How do you know it wasn't by black guys in his boxing gym? Have you been to a boxing gym? For the year I went, I was the only white person in the gym.

IZASH INDUSTRY - I'm not offended by it, but I do wonder why a fighter would want a nickname that references another fighter.
Yeah, especially a legend like Ali. Seems an arrogant thing to do, but i dont really care i'd watch him again happily Phone Post 3.0
Got a laugh outta this, 'Yeah, especially a legend like Ali.' So he shouldn't have chosen a legend? What, you'd have preferred Clay 'Guida' Collard? For realsies? Phone Post 3.0
