This August, the Gods of the Thumb Wrestling world will descend upon the small town of Lowestoft in England for the Annual World Thumb Wrestling Championships. Standing tall amongst them will be U.S. competitor James Isaacs, (aka Tigermonkey).
Self-proclaimed U.S. Thumb Wrestling champ Tigermonkey has been undefeated since the 3rd grade. As his Thumb Wrestling talents grew he discovered he had a real knack for the delicate art, cutting his teeth on frat boys, jocks and stoners. Tired of not living up to his potential and pissed that he was ‘first out’ in a recent game of trampoline Dodge Ball, he knows that Thumb Wrestling is his thing, what he was made to do, and the WTWC is his chance to really succeed at something. After years of waiting tables, vlogging and an endless obsession with martial arts, James has finally found his calling.
Determined to become match fit, Tigermonkey has begun a rigorous training regime consisting of specialist-crafted thumb exercises, a protein heavy diet and a general obsession of engaging everyone he meets in an all out thumb war. But the real test will be come when he meets Graeme “Flash” Cunningham, reigning world champion from Scotland.
And James has never been more determined. Since life is at an all-time low, he needs this. After a relentless twelve months of personal setbacks he knows that this is his ‘time’ and is certain he will win the day and make America proud at the WTWC. Failure is not an option. As he prepares in Los Angeles, James is optimistic. With the moral support of his family and friends, combined with his incredible tenacity, he is determined to prevail!
