Retired English Boxer Knocks Down, Captures Knife-Wielding Home Intruder

Retired English Boxer Knocks Down, Captures Knife-Wielding Home Intruder

Gregory McCallum, 23, was sentenced to four and a half years in prison Monday for aggravated injury for threatening an elderly couple with a knife–but not before receiving a thrashing by the husband, a former boxer.

The judge told McCallum he “got what he deserved.”

In England last August, in the village of Botley, Oxford, McCallum, who was drunk, broke into the home of his neighbor, Frank Corti, 72. Corti, a former boxer who served with the Royal Engineers in North Africa from 1956-58, was at home with his wife Margaret, 72.

McCallum threatened Frank Corti with a knife, but Corti dodged it and slugged him twice in the face, knocking the intruder down and giving him a black eye and bloody mouth. Corti held him down until police arrived.

Corti said, “I was scared when he first drew the knife, but my old training must have kicked in because I just punched him as hard as I could and he went down like a sack of spuds. If you can’t defend what’s yours, where are we at?”
