Driffield boxer Curtis Woodhouse turns troll hunter to track down a cyber bully
A VICIOUS-tongued cyber bully who taunted boxer Curtis Woodhouse over his defeat in an English title bout was left quaking in his boots - when the angry fighter threatened to track him down and turn up on his doorstep.
The story of “jimmybrownpants” unfolded live on the social networking site Twitter and flashed around the world.
And the actions of Mr Woodhouse won praise from a welter of celebrities - including ex deputy Prime Minister John Prescott, World Champion boxer Lennox Lewis and footballers Andrew Cole, Joey Barton and Robbie Fowler.
Mr Woodhouse, 32, had suffered a torrent of offensive personal abuse on Twitter from an internet “troll” calling himself The Master, after his controversial defeat against Shayne Singleton for the English light-welterweight title on Friday.
See tomorrow’s Driffield Times and Post for an exclusive interview with Curtis.
