The mugger fled the scene and is still being sought by law enforcement for his crimes.
WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. – A 68-year-old former world champion kickboxer turned the tables on a mugger who tried to rob him outside a Florida restaurant.
Steve Shepherd believes he cracked the mugger's ribs as he defended himself from being robbed on Dec. 27 in West Palm Beach, WPBF-TV reported.
"I hit him in the ribs, in the left rib cage area and he just folded up and dropped and I felt it break," Shepherd said.
Shepherd is a five-time world kickboxing champ. Though retired 18 years, he's been training to become the oldest professional fighter. He has a March bout scheduled.
