Getty Images Nobody likes a troll, and usually athletes and celebrities get the worst of it from them on Twitter. English boxer Curtis Woodhouse was one of those people, but unlike others, he decided to handle his troll in a much different manner. A man known as Jimbob decided to rip Woodhouse on Twitter by calling him things like a “laughable punk” and a “complete disgrace.” Woodhouse wanted to track down this troll, and tweeted out to his 17,000-plus followers that he will give them a reward for finding out where Jimbob lives. However, Jimbob wasn’t exactly buying it. But while Jimbob was laughing away, Woodhouse was coming closer and closer to his destined location. Eventually, he was only a few doorsteps away. With that, Jimbob ultimately ended up apologizing. Woodhouse eventually got a lot of praise for what he did, such as from Lennox Lewis. Ha!I LOVE this story about @woodhousecurtis paying a visit to a#keyboardwarrior on Twitter.joe.ie/sports/random-… — Lennox Lewis (@LennoxLewis) March 12, 2013 After that event, Woodhouse realized he could have blocked the troll. just found out you can block people!! could of let me know earlier i could have saved 20 quid in petrol! #jimmybrownpants #boxing #football — curtis woodhouse (@woodhousecurtis) March 11, 2013 Oh well, he at least brought a big victory for the people of the Internet. Remember trolls, watch what you type to people — especially a professional boxer — because one day they can show up to your doorstep.
