Interesting Fact:  “I’m very humble, very tactful. If you see me away from all this, I’m very humble. Yes I am. When the respect is mutual, I’m very tactful. And I’m a good human being. Good father and good friend. I feel very good and fair.”

Future Ambitions:   “Actor. Be some kind of Rambo or something someday. Four-time world champion.”
