Former British boxer Garry Delaney was jailed for life on Friday 28th July by an Old Bailey judge for the murder of 23 year old Paul Price. The judge Leonard Goldstone ruled that Delaney must serve a minimum of 11 years for what he described as a “Cowardly” attack.
The incident happened in October 2005 when Delaney, 35 years old, was at a disco in the County Hotel in Woodford, Essex. He was asked by a member of staff to help remove Price and his friend who had been refused entry for wearing jeans and trainers. The former boxer, who worked as an East London bouncer, then lifted Price’s friend up off his feet and carried him outside and dropped him into some nearby bushes.
When Price then asked “Why did you do that?”, Delaney punched him in the face and caused him to fall and crack his head on the ground. Mr Price died a short time later from his injuries. The judge had earlier rejected Delaney’s defence claims he only hit Price with “A half-hearted jab”, and went on to state that the boxer had “Behaved like a bully” and “Reacted like a coward.”

If you ask me this is an example of a pure coward. Not only that but it was senseless violence.
