Trivia

  • Both in name and appearance, he resembles the main villian and world champion from the famous boxing manga and anime Ashita no Joe(Rocky Joe in Italy), José Mendoza(although it is to note that this Jose Mendoza is a Spaniard, While Joe's José Mendoza is Mexican, and that this Mendoza is a Heavyweight and Joe's Mendoza is a Bantamweight).
