A mugger recently picked the wrong person to try to assault.  A former world champion kickboxer knocked out the would-be-mugger during the attempt.

According to Fox News:

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.

The mugger fled the scene and is still being sought by law enforcement for his crimes.
