People have been emailing, DMing and texting me to see what’s going on… My Iron Brother and training partner Robby Robinson AKA The Black Prince @robbyrobinsonofficial is sick. He’s been battling with sickle cell anemia his whole life… ..only it’s gotten worse. I haven’t been replying out of respect for my warrior ⚔️ friend… I’ve been hoping he’d pull out of it, and tell you himself. But he isn't doing great, so consider this an update❗️ This man is an icon 🏆 A legend 🏆 Mentally one of the strongest people I know. He might even take the cake as #1️⃣. Unlike me, his battle never stops after the gym. When I sleep he’s battling. I eat he’s battling. I come home after a long day, plop down on the couch and spend time with the pups, he’s still battling. People say show up early and leave late. Robby never leaves. Like I mentioned before, he's a warrior ⚔️. He understands this is part of his life and he will continue to persist. And his persistence has had a huge impact on me. In honor of Robby and the battle he's going through, do us a favor. Be a man or woman of action. ❇️Take this moment to call or write a friend, family member or somebody you’re close with. ❇️Take this moment to let those know who have positively impacted you and give them credit for being there or motivating you when you needed it most. 🛑Because before you know it, the opportunity will slip you by and you’ll forever have a deep pit of regret festering inside you… …wishing you took the chance when you had it. I don’t want that for you I thank you and I know Robby thanks you for all the incredible support and donations he’s received. 🙏🙌 I want to give a special thanks @makaveli_motivation who put this collab together of my idol and friend Robby Robinson. Don’t Lighten up, TITAN UP! 🐺 ⚔🍀 Mike O'Hearn The Titan
O’ Hearn wrote about Robby Robinson being the most mentally tough person he’s ever met. “He’s a warrior,” said O’ Hearn.
He then went on to explain why it’s important to reach out to those people who support you because before you know it, the chance may slip you by.
We wish all the best to Robby Robinson in these trying times. He is surely both a legend and an Icon as most would agree.
