I don't know how you can say that it isn't related to boxing? I'm not saying that your dumb or anything... actually... wait maybe you are. I'm pretty sure that Rashad doesn't have that title because he is a "Sweet" person.
Here is the definition located in dictionary.com. Most people know what sugar is, but for the others that don’t know…
Sugar - a sweet, crystalline substance, C12H22O11, obtained chiefly from the juice of the sugarcane and the sugar beet, and present in sorghum, maple sap, etc.: used extensively as an ingredient and flavoring of certain foods and as a fermenting agent in the manufacture of certain alcoholic beverages; sucrose.
You can take this in two different approaches:
1. Rashad’s title was derived from the boxing nick
2. Rashad was given this title because he is a sweet person
Many people here have a pretty solid argument - "It's just a nick name" or "He simply deserves it." I won't argue against that because if I wasn't such a large boxing enthusiast I would agree with them. But no one has yet to say that sugar has no relation to boxing because that would be utterly stupid. Even if a person has a nickname like the "general", there should be some relation. He/She should have some leadership/tactically ability. Let us look at a few nick names:
Rush – Explosive power
Rampage – destructive
Iceman – Cold hearted or puts his opponents on ice
Muscle Shark – Really strong, aggressive as a shark
As you can see here, fighters are not given nicknames by there personality. I’m pretty sure that GSP isn’t called rush because he rushes his math homework in the 6th grade. But I want to here your argument? - So are you saying that Rashad’s fighting style is sweet like candy?
As you can see, you have no argument and please don’t change your argument now because you have just realized that your argument has not bases. Please do not post for the sake of posting.
Have a nice day mister
