That was Zdravko Micevic on the boundless delights of punching people's heads in.
Those words simply reinforce my opinion the bouncer is no more than a pissant peasant bully low-life. Who, as a trained boxer, ought to know better than to cowardly king-hit a fifty-year old bloke:
Boxer's golden dreams
As a year 8 student at St Albans Secondary College, Zdravko Micevic dreamt of Olympic gold.
After moving to Australia from Yugoslavia in the early 1990s, the teenager took up karate but switched to boxing, primarily to improve his hand speed.
In 1996, then aged 14, Micevic became a Victorian amateur champion and was the runner-up in the Australian amateur championships, despite only having three amateur fights under his belt.
He also won a silver medal at the Australian Amateur Boxing League titles in Rockhampton, leading his trainer, Louie Korica, to predict his protege would become the nation's junior champion within a year. "He is becoming bigger and stronger by the day," Korica told the Herald Sun in a 1996 interview.
Micevic's natural power may have been conveyed through a variety of punches, but he knew there was room for improvement.
"No matter how good you are, you can always get better," he said in December 1996. "Everyone wants to be the best, but it depends on how I go."
Still, his passion for pugilism remained his main focus. "When you enjoy something, you just want to do it," he said.
I hope they throw the book at him, but I somehow doubt they will given I agree with Bunyip's observations on Victoria's legal system. Has Micevic even been pulled in by the cops yet?
After the initial legal argy-bargy I predict plea of manslaughter and a sentence of three years.
