    UK man, 77, ‘bravely’ fights off ATM mugger in boxing match caught on video

    A 77-year-old man is being hailed for his bravery after video caught him going toe-to-toe with only his bare knuckles against an apparent knife-wielding mugger in the United Kingdom earlier this month.

    The senior, identified as Trevor, had just withdrawn money from an ATM in Cardiff, Wales, early on Feb. 5 when an unknown white male approached and demanded his cash and bank card, South Wales police said.

    Surveillance video released Wednesday chronicled the clash in Cardiff.

    I can almost hear him saying, "You want some of this?"
    If you are going to ask for help, be prepared to receive it.

    Surprised the old guy wasn't arrested and charged with assault and battery and failure to relinquish his money to the perp.

    What robber wears a yellow safety vest? The old guy probably has more time in pub fights then the other guy has in knife fights.

    I’m sorry the UK refuses to give him the option of a firearm. 99.9% of the time the elderly over there will wind up robbed and beaten.
