Toni Valtonen's Tattoos Are A Bit Tough To Explain. Unless, Of Course, He's Honest About Being Racist.
"I had a crazy and rebellious youth, I made some faults in my past and I am not proud of these marks. I regret that I ever had these tattoos made. Nowadays I am a dedicated family man and professional athlete, and I am not involved in any politics whatsoever."
These "marks" that he is referring to are various tattoos that he has on his stomach, shoulder and back.
On his stomach, it says "born to hate". That's a bit weird, but not exactly offensive... until you look at the swastika on his shoulder, and the "white pride" tattoo sprawled across his back.
It's hard to believe his story that he's remorseful about the tattoos. It seems easy enough to cover them up, if he's really that regretful about them.
M-1 usually makes him wear a patch to cover his swastika tattoo when he fights, but the patch came off during his last fight, exposing his secret to the world in "stunning high definition", as they say. Stunning, indeed.
