Competitor (seed): Patrick Willis (7)
Nickname: The Rolling Ball of Butcher Knives
Weight: 242 lbs.
Reach: That nickname (bestowed upon him by Brad Childress)
Sponsor: Under Armor
Ring Music: Boom
Hometown: Bruceton, Tennessee, the home of literally dozens of other people.
Pedigree: Patrick had the kind of tragic childhood that we’ve seen from countless boxers over the years. The Peterson brothers are a great example of how boxing can help young men learn proper focus and discipline in the wake of tragedy.
Strength(s): Seeking. Destroying.
Predilection towards violence: Paternal neglect oftentimes results in pent up aggression.
Fighting Style: Willis is a whirling dervish in the ring. He’s going to throw punches, and if you’re too crazy/slow to stay out of his way you’re gonna have a bad day.
Competitor (seed): Adrian Wilson (10)
Nickname: “A-Dub” (sigh)
Reach: He’s a Cardinal, so he’s obviously not a real contender.
Sponsor: Creative Recreation
Ring Music: Last Caress by Will Leitch and the Wailers
Hometown: High Point, NC. So if you need any furniture, you know who to ask.
Pedigree: Adrian has always excelled at a variety of sports. In fact, he was an honorable mention high school All American in basketball.
Predilection towards violence: None that’s readily apparent. But he does own a sneaker boutique in Scottsdale called High Point Shoes, and that alone kicks ass.
Strength: Freakish athleticism.
Weakness: Anything with a patent leather trim.
Fighting Style: You can call Adrian a finesse fighter if you want, but there’s a good chance he’ll knock you out in retaliation for such a slight.
