Last Saturday, a man came up to Chicagoan Claire Quinn and told her to hand over her belongings. But the whole robbery thing did NOT go all that well for him.
At 10:30 a.m., the 26-year-old woman was walking on Chicago’s Damen Avenue when she was accosted by a man pretending to ask her for directions, according to Chicago’s CBS 2.
The man acted as if he just wanted Quinn to help him around the area, but once he saw she let her guard down, he punched her in the head and began trying to take her cell phone and other items from her.
In normal circumstances, this punk would have succeeded in taking this woman’s stuff.
But Clair Quinn is not your average woman. Indeed, she is a tough-as-nails boxer.
Quinn was not going to be a pushover for this creep.
“I could have just given him my phone, but you laid your hands on me. I’m not going to take that,” Quinn told the media.
Quinn’s boxing trainer, Lalo Beas, chimed in to note that Quinn began assailing the punk with a series of blows.
“And she said she was just relentless with as many punches as she could possibly throw,” Beas said.
She may have still been lying on the ground, but Quinn was not meekly allowing herself to be mugged.
“I guess the guy was standing over her,” Beas explained to channel 2. “She was just punching, right in the groin area.”
“He wasn’t expecting me to do that and certainly not with that kind of force,” Quinn said smiling.
Soon enough, the punk ran off in agony. He also ran off empty handed.
Quinn reported suffering a slight concussion, but she beat her attacker and stopped him from taking her belongings.
Right now some punk is suffering a serious groin injury and a devastated ego.
Serves him right, too!
