This is just priceless. Some jerk kept taunting a professional boxer who lost a fight. All fun and games until the boxer decided he'd had enough.
British boxer Curtis Woodhouse hunted down a Twitter troll to confront him at his home.
Thank you, Denicos.
Just you wait until our premium (aka, 3-4*) posters start hunting down all the sexless dorks that make fun of them.
Izzo suddenly became very fond of social media.

The whole thing is a classic, from the troll's putdowns (which sound an awful lot like he belongs on tRCMB, or at least 247), to the boxer's going along with it then snapping and asking his followers to help him track the guy down, to the boxer giving updates on Twitter to how close he is to the troll, to the troll calling somebody for help, and tweeting he was "just kidding," to not answering his door.......
Oh, you keyboard toughguys, you kill me, you really do....
Izzo and Dantonio just need to call in some favors from Seth Mitchell.
I was hoping that Jimmy would come out and kick Woodhouse's ass...
I've seen news shows in Britain whereby reporters have tracked down trolls and confronted them. I think because the country is a lot smaller that it's more common there than in the United States.

I don't think it is more common as such...
it is more that people actually report tweets that are racially abusive to police here... the classic case being 100 people reporting to various police forces across the country the tweets of one person after fabrice muamba had a heart attack on the pitch during a nationally televised soccer game...
the tweets were racially abusive... the tweeter was charged, and got an 8 week jail sentence for it.
but there are various stories of people here getting charged, and having police cautions handed to them for racially abusing various celebs/sports people...
it has prompted a change in the law here....
