    His father is a super white guy with blue eyes, he is of Russian descent. His mother was born from 2 North Korean immigrant parents. They are usually called Soviet Koreans who were Russified in language, names.

    If it looks like a white duck then the media will quack that it is a white duck, so we should accept him as a white duck. Put it this way. He would have been able to play in the major leagues pre 1947 but the Korean army would have put him in prison had he tried to join them a few years later.

    Well you could be right but it still makes you sound like one of those insecure Black people who would even claim someone who is 1/4 Black + 3/4 White ( if they look black ). Like for example Tiger woods is more Asian than Black yet he is considered " Black ". Back than when I was a kid the white community would never consider anyone 1/4 non-white as white, now I even see some people especially from this forum claiming 1/2 non-white as white ( if they look white ).

    I'm 25% Korean + 25% Japanese + 50% Polish. My father is Asian and my mother is white I have blue-greenish eyes, brown hair. I'm also 6ft 4, although my father is 6ft 2, my Korean grandfather was also 6ft 1. So they are tall for Asians. People always though I was white, but when they get to know my father they start calling me a Nip.


    Here is another fighter, Only he is Korean on the father side but with a French mother

    Denis Kang a 5ft 11 middleweight fighter. His nickname is the " Super Korean " even though he looks 0% Korean. But to be fair there are many pure blood Korean world fighting champions that are way better fighter than this guy, this guy takes pride in being Korean, hate his french side and is nationalistic about Korean heritage.

    Does appearance really matters more than genetics?


    3/4 White + 1/4 Black

    Physically he looks less white than GGG but genetically he is more white than GGG. Even with his blue eyes he still look less white than GGG.

    What about a black baby born to 2 white parents? That would make the kid almost pure white genetically.

    What about this Black albino that ended up looking a super nordic aryan after he had his skin and color pigmented, including his hair straightened.

    Why create stupid threads like this? I could care less if he was 100 percent Asian. He's a great fighter and the most exciting guy in boxing.

    a black baby born to white parents is impossible
    he was either adopted or the mother had the kid with a black man

    Actually its more comon that the baby comes out white looking when theres a black mother white father for some reason.

    http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/ampp3d/how-white-baby-can-born-4145688

    GGG is white to me, the father is a tough white Russian, hes raise din a white country, and pummels black boxers. What more do you want??

    All his Athletic traits come from his white genes imo....

    Even if he was 100 Asian, still he's the most exciting boxer right now, hands down. He's a very, very hard worker, and he's humble. He's someone I would like all whites to look up to.

    possibly, but its irrelevant as hes white, with a white father. fighting out of Russia.

    In terms of a caste perspective, everyone thinks he white, plus his white traits are why hes so strong and powerful.

    So its all good to me :)

    When push comes to shove, I seem to always root for the lighter toned fighter if there is no definitive White to choose from.

    I like GGG and love what he has done so far. That being said, if he should go up against a non-mixed White fighter, well...

    "Is GGG Gennady Golovkin white or Asian ? "

    Duh, he's obviously mixed. Weren't you able to figure that out for yourself? And I've got nothing against Asians or White-Asian mixtures, with the exception of the troll "Eurasian Fan".

    Yes, he obviously mixed race. But because whites tend to have recessive traits he's more Asian than white as is clear to anyone looking at the above picture.

    No he's not European; no he's no Asian; yes he's mixed. What's the point?

    Since you're so insecure, it sucks to be you.

    Gennady Golovkin is half White half Asian. I think the appropriate term for him is "Eurasian". In many ways he looks white but in many other ways he looks Asian.

    I think "Eurasian" is the best term for him, but he represents part of the boxing bloc from Eastern Europe so a lot of people and the boxing media lump him in as an Eastern Euro.

    For what it's worth Sergey Kovalev,a White Russian and probably the hottest fighter in boxing now, also has an Asian wife and his kids would be Eurasian.

    Personally as a White male, I've dated many Middle Eastern and Asian females and I think Eurasian is a fantastic mix.

    I just hope Gennady is not as tortured about his identity as Eurasian Fan seems to be.

    His own father admired his son and said he was never 1/2 as great a boxer as his son was. Did you know his own father was a former boxer? however his son was trained by Kazakh coach.

    How can you attribute everything to his 50% white gene when his 100% white father couldn't achieve.

    My opinion 50% White + 50% Asian = deadly warrior.

    Kazakhstan is not a white country, is a central Asian Turkic country. It used to be a white country though until it was conquered by the Mongolian invaders. The white population was genocide the others mixed to survive. I've actually talked with some Kazakhs before. The Caucasian white popultion of Kazakhstan like Scythians and Andronovo people no longer exists. They've been extinct.

    The great majority of Kazakhstan today are Asian mix race looking. They are genetically 2/3 Asian to 4/5 Asians ( 60-80% Asian genetically )


    [​IMG]


    Some Kazakhs even have blue eyes, red hair, blonde hair, green this is due to the Mongolian invaders after subjugating the original white population and mixed heavily. Pure original population of Kazakhstan don't exist. Intermixing between Mongolian invaders and white people of Central Asia existed 1000 years before Mongolian invasion of the world. In the past Mongolian horseriders would raid people from Central Asia and Siberians for marriage. This is proven from an anthropology research of west Mongolia which shows the west Mongolia had people who were a mixture of 60-80% Mongoloid and 20-40% White and look exactly the people below this picture.

    It even works the other way around. A white baby with blonde hair born to 2 black parents.

    This is because one of his ancestor was White and it picked gene ( although very rare case ) and this is why the child is white, the same reason why the the father had a black child because one of his ancestor gene was black.

    I think GGG not only want white fans but also Asian fans too root for him, more specifically Korean fans.
    His mother is Korean and his coach is also a Asian looking Kazakh.


    He once said

    " I'm half Korean, I'm very proud of my Korean heritage"


    " My father is Russian, my mother is Korean, but I'm Kazakh "



    His other 2 brother look much more like his mother, although the other brother also looks like a white guy.

    He also admires Asian boxers and wants to be part of this.

    no, it is possible for "black" parents to have a "white" child (but most of the time the child is albino or a redhead, so no "white" gene, more like redhead or albino gene), but it is impossible for white parents to have a black child

    That's not how recessive genes work. Two white parents can't have a child with a black phenotype.

    Yeah okay. I made a typo, a mistake. Is that such a big deal and who cares? I'm 50% Polish too, I mentioned it way before this thread started.

    Of course is freaking possible. Why are you so in-denial. The child DNA tested is their baby and is not an albino either.

    A similar story in 1970's, a black child born to 2 White South Africans. The male ( father of the child) admitted that he had black great grandmother.
