Bald Bull is not a terrorist

I ran into this piece of work courtesy of gamepolitics.com from a man who claims Bald Bull proclaims Allah Akbar when he throws a hook. The phrase translates to “God is Great.” From that, the guy goes off the deep end and says the game is promoting Islamic militancy.

First off, the phrase “God is Great” shouldn’t mean there’s a plot brewing in Nintendo to unleash a boxing holy war. It’s like saying every time someone grabs a pipe bomb and heads to a rival church. It doesn’t connect.

Second, the guy’s got wax in his ears. I’ll leave it up to you to decide, but it sounds something like allev achmed.(?) No idea what it means but I invite anyone in the comments to help figure this one out.
