Golden Gloves Champion Apprehends Armed Robber
Eric Sydnor is a Clerk that works the night shift at a 7-eleven on the University of Pittsburg’s campus. Police reported that Leverett Johnson walked into the 7-Eleven looking to rob it. Johnson pointed the pistol at the young clerk demanding money, but apparently had no idea who he was dealing with. Eric Sydnor is a Golden Gloves Boxing Champion that is training to make the United States Olympic Boxing Team.
When asked how he handled the would be robber, Eric said, “He got slammed.” Eric’s Boxing Coach Jose Caraballo said Johnson, “picked the wrong guy and store to walk into that night.”
Eric does not believe he is a hero “The fact that I’m a boxer had nothing to do with anything. It’s just what’s right, and what’s wrong.”
Well there you have it folks, if you learn to defend yourself take up boxing in Queens.
