Video shows Florida boxing champ stopping robbery with a few jabs

- A would-be robber was left beaten and bruised by a bystander -- who happened to be a state boxing champion -- at a Florida Walgreens on Valentine's Day, police said.

Bradenton Police said Anthony Nemeth, dressed in a hoodie, covered his face when he walked into a neighborhood Walgreens and tried to rob the store, reported.

“He jumped up onto the counter, demanding all of their Oxycodone 30 milligram,” police said. At first, the store clerk couldn’t believe a robbery was occurring, but Nemeth assured him it was and that he had a gun, police said.

David West, a 25-year-old who reportedly holds two state boxing titles, overheard the demands and jumped into action.
