Brit female kickboxer nicknamed ‘Pretty Killer’ batters Spanish robbers attacking English dad with his kids in Majorca

‘INSTINCT KICKED IN’

A BRITISH female kickboxer nicknamed "Pretty Killer" battered a pair of Spanish robbers attacking an English dad holidaying with his kids in Majorca.

Pro fighter Iman Barlow, 26, leapt into action with her boxer boyfriend when they spotted a robbery unfolding near their hotel.

The two robbers swooped in on their victim and pinned down his wrist before stealing his £25,000 watch.

But as they tried to flee on a moped, double world champion Iman gave chase and delivered a signature kick to one of the thugs - causing him to crash to the ground.

Boyfriend Stan Stannard, 26, an international class middleweight boxer, punched the other crook and between them they were able to pin them down for ten minutes until police arrived.

The couple had been on holiday with Iman's brother, Thai, and two other fighters from their Thai boxing club, when the drama unfolded on Saturday.

Iman, who has since returned with Stan to their home in Melton Mowbray, Leics., said: "One of the lads in our party saw it start and said 'there's a fight going on over there'.

They ran off and as one went past me I kicked him in the chest to slow him down.

"These blokes had got off their scooter and while one held the man's wrist the other took his watch off.

"They ran off and as one went past me I kicked him in the chest to slow him down.

"He carried on running and then a young girl shouted 'he's got my dad's watch' so Stan ran after him and hit him with a left hand punch.

"Afterwards you start thinking he could have had a knife or a gun but instinct just kicked in at the time.

"The family thanked us for what we had done and they gave us 50 Euros which we didn't want to accept at first.

"When I told my dad what had happened he loved it. He couldn't believe it but he was happy that we got involved.

"My training definitely helped me have the confidence to do something when the robbery was happening."

It comes after reports of Magaluf "mafia" gangs reportedly targeting up to 100 drunk tourists a night in the British hotspot.

Earlier this month, anti-tourism activists sprayed graffiti on holiday rental cars, slashed their tyres and smashed their windscreens on the Spanish island.

Last year, Majorca received 13.8 million visitors.
