Down for the Count

Two thugs must have thought they’d have an easy time ripping off a 62-year-old gray-haired man who got around using a walker. They approached him with a knife as he was withdrawing cash from an ATM in Lidkoping, Sweden, and demanded his money. “This isn’t going to go well,” replied Rolf Klasson. They “scoffed” at his warning, Klasson says, just before he decked the one with the knife with a right hook. “Then I laid out the other with a left jab.” Both men ended up on the ground, but managed to get up and run. Klasson is a retired professional boxer. (JW/Local Sweden) ...Actually, I think that went pretty darned well.
