The one-two combo punch … or 25

We love this story. Seems a London couple, so infatuated with boxing have decided to name their new born daughter Autumn Brown.

Great name. Until you realize that she has 25 middle names, all for past boxing champions. Geez louise.

Her full name: Autumn Sullivan Corbett Fitzsimmons Jeffries Hart Burns Johnson Willard Dempsey Tunney Schmeling Sharkey Carnera Baer Braddock Louis Charles Walcott Marciano Patterson Johansson Liston Clay Frazier Foreman Brown.

Maria told the city’s Express and Star: “The whole thing came about because both my mum and dad are obsessed with boxing and have a bit of a daft sense of humour.

“When I was young I couldn’t ever remember my name. It took me to the age of 10 to memorise it all.”

The 33-year-old mother added: “I’m hoping Autumn has a good sense of humour with her name. It’s never done me any harm though.”

I guess the joke is in the idiot pudding, so to speak.
