CHICAGO (AP) _ A man looking to steal a cell phone may want to rethink his ability to size up victims after a woman he tried to rob turned to be a boxer who knows punching below the belt may be illegal in the ring but on the street it's a pretty effective way to stop and opponent.

Twenty-six-year-old Golden Gloves champion Claire Quinn says she was walking Sunday in Chicago's Bucktown neighborhood when a man sucker punched her from behind and demanded her cell phone.

But Quinn fought back. And even though she was hit hard enough to suffer a concussion, she told the Chicago Tribune that she ``kept throwing my right hand into his groin.''

Finally, the man ran off.

Police confirmed the attack but say no arrests have been made.
