Don’t Rob Boxers

There really is nothing like sweet justice. I have to admit that I had a smile on my face when I read about this story yesterday about a knife wielding burglar who broke into a 72 year old pensioners home.

What he didn't know was that Frank Corti, 72 years of age, was a former junior boxing champion. And he duly knocked the idiot out.

The pensioner then restrained him until police arrived. He was jailed for four and a half years yesterday after a judge told him he had ‘got what he deserved'.

Don't rob a boxer!

I really do love reading stories like this. So often in the UK the criminal gets away with it, or even worst, the victim gets charged for defending themselves. So it was good to hear the judge saying that ‘he got what he deserved'. As far as I'm concerned, you leave any rights you have at the door when you break into someones home with a knife.
