British boxer Curtis Woodhouse tracks down his Twitter tormentor

  • Print

DRIFFIELD, England - British boxer Curtis Woodhouse got so mad, he decided to track his Twitter tormentor down.

Woodhouse, a former footballer who played with Hull, set off to find the Twitter user who had been abusing him via the social media networking site following his English light-welterweight title fight loss on Friday.

Woodhouse tweeted: "I'll give (pounds) 1,000 to anybody who provides me with an address and picture of this man. Knock, knock."

The boxer apparently even showed up on the person's street in northern England, tweeting: "He never came out to play so I'm going back home. It was maybe a bit daft what I did today but sometimes enough is enough."

Former heavyweight champion Lennox Lewis applauded Woodhouse for his antics, tweeting: "Ha! I LOVE this story about (at)woodhousecurtis paying a visit to a (hashtag)keyboardwarrior on Twitter."
