Soul patch

my cousin with Nonito Donaire "It's just a job. Grass grows, birds fly, waves pound the sand.
I beat people up."
~Muhammad Ali 

My Filipino-American cousin really got around during his three weeks here. Look who he bumped into at Café Havana in Makati City—fellow Filipino-American Nonito Donaire, the boxer known as "The Filipino Flash." Of course he had to take a selfie!

In case you're wondering what the title is all about, I just discovered that the little patch of facial hair under the lower lip is called a soul patch. • PHOTO BY JOSE

The Filipino Flash looks pretty trim and they both sport handsome soul patches! I wonder about the name of that little patch of hair?

Nice portrait. I don't know much about boxing tho.

Good portrait shot!

I have heard that term used before.
