Croatia real estate


Swedish tourist pinched a boxing champion for a bum and got knocked down

Croatian Times

A Swedish tourist got knocked out in a bizarre incident in a night club in the top Croatian tourist destination Dubrovnik. The tourist pinched Croatian boxing champion Ante Delija to his bottom, obviously not knowing who he was. The 23-year-old champion was reported to police for reacting immediately and punching the Swede, knocking him down to the ground. The incident happened in the prestigious Culture Club Revelin in Dubrovnik just one day after Ante Delija won a fight against an Albanian fighter at an international tournament in eastern Croatian town of Osijek. The Swedish tourist got up after a while but left the club at 3AM with a blue eye and locals reported the incident to the police. The identity of the Swedish tourist who wanted to have fun, but pinched the wrong person, is not known to police to this date. "It wasn't a real punch. Ante Delija just pushed away the Swedish tourist who pinched him", one of the fighter's friend Maro Perak told the local news website .
