Can you guess which Game of Thrones character Hekkie Budler (right) looks like without scrolling down?
At Pinoy Pride 42 on Saturday, September 16th, Milan 'El Metodico' Melindo will be defending his IBF Light-Flyweight championship against Hekkie 'The Hexecutioner' Budler of South Africa.
If you're not familiar with Budler, here's how he looks like...
He kinda looks...familiar. He looks like...OH DEAR.
He looks like Joffrey Baratheon from Game of Thrones!
See the resemblance?
Well as it turns out, Hekkie is a big fan of the show!
"I love Game of Thrones!" he said, but revealed that we were the first ones to point out that he kinda looks like King Joffrey, who's played by actor Jack Gleeson.
"I hope not. As long as I don’t act like him, it’s fine." Hekkie said with a laugh.
If you're not familiar with the show, Joffrey grew to become one of the most despised characters in the series because he was ruthless, evil, and pretty much just downright annoying.
Hence Hekkie's reaction.
"I’m gonna ask my wife because she also loves the show. As long as I don’t act like him, I can look like him, it’s alright."
Don'te worry, from our own experience, Hekkie is A LOT nicer than Joffrey Baratheon.
