Boxer's Inspiration

Amateur boxer George Wilson III has several things going against him before he enters the ring. His left jab is in question becaues that fist has just one finger because of a birth defect. The Ohio fighter is also missing both feet, forcing him to use prostheses. Those challenges haven't stopped him from becoming a varsity wrestler or becoming a boxer. Wilson says what keeps him going now is his girlfriend for the past two years who is deaf. She attends the Ohio School for the Deaf in Columbus.
