    I have never seen a mixed person who looks like this. I bet most people growing up didn’t believe he is part white. Some people doubt a little about me when I’m lighter than him and mixed with 3 races…

    There’s no way he’s half white, he looks fully Black.

      He is too white to be black and too black to be white. He is both Irish American and African American and the better for both. What a fantastic fighter. His reputation is a slow burner and as time goes by he will become more and more revered.
