Boxing champ Chris Eubank MUGGED in London as thieves steal £400 Louis Vuitton bag containing I'm a Celeb bandana

FORMER boxing champ Chris Eubank was mugged for his £400 Louis Vuitton bank by "Britain's most brazen" thief.

The ex-WBO middleweight and super-middleweight champion was ambushed after visiting a Barclays branch in Edgware Road, West London.

He told how a smartly-dressed thief tackled him from behind and grabbed the brown clutch bag, which contained his I'm a Celeb bandana.

The yob then legged it following the broad daylight robbery yesterday.

Eubank told the Evening Standard: "I couldn’t believe it. I was stunned.

“He couldn’t have known who I was because he wouldn’t have tried it. He was just looking at the prize.

"It was over in seconds and he was down the road like a sprinter with a baton."

The boxing legend said he was too shocked to even think about chasing the thief, who he described as "rather well-dressed with smart jeans.”

He ran straight into the Barclays to report the mugging and the police were called.

Eubank said: "I thought, ‘He must be the country’s most brazen crook’.

"But it’s a sign of the times – they don’t care about confronting someone like me, so nobody is immune."

Eubank says the bag has sentimental value as it is one of five the star has owned since 1992 and the designer no longer makes them.

He is also fuming at a quarter bar of Waitrose Belgian chocolate with hazelnuts that was swiped.

The boxer explained: "That’s what’s really messed up my day.

"It’s been in there for six days just ready to eat. I like it at that temperature and they took it."

The mugging comes after Eubank bravely opened up about the tragic death of his son Sebastian, who died in July at the age of 29 of a heart attack.

Police confirmed they were called to Edgware Road at around 1.30pm yesterday to reports of a "bag snatch".

They said there have been no arrests and no one was injured.

Anyone with any information can call police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
