While they definitely have their similarities – look the same, have one letter different in their first names, have the same dreams and goals in the same sport – like any sibling relationship, they also have their differences. One likes the color black and while the other likes white. One likes horse racing, one likes basketball. However, one of the things they agree on most, is their desire to make history.

“We never dreamed of being able to make history on the same night and on the same card together,” said Jermell. “It makes it even more intense. The stakes are much bigger.”

“We’ve always planned on making history and the time is now,” said Jermall. “I need him to go in there and do his job and at the end of the night, we’ll both have our hands raised.”
