Good for this guy.
MEMPHIS, Tenn.-An 80-year-old veteran and former amateur boxer got 13 stitches after fighting with a mugger inside a bathroom at a veterans hospital.
George Younger showed he wasn't an easy target when he was robbed last week inside the Memphis Veterans Medical Center.
As he was washing his hands, the robber hit and punched him from behind and tried to drag him into one of the stalls.
"He kept telling me if I go to the stall, he wouldn't hurt me," he said. "No way was I going into that stall."
An Army infantryman stationed in the South Pacific in World War II and a welterweight amateur boxer from Memphis, he fought back and landed a few shots.
"I think I got him good-I don't like being called a victim," he told The Commercial Appeal on Thursday. Vet 1, Punk 0. I'll bet the perp will have a fun time telling other inmates how he got his sorry ass kicked by an 80-year-old man.
