Footballer turned boxer Curtis Woodhouse left a Twitter tormentor running for cover today by driving to his doorstep for a face to face showdown.

The former Lincoln City coach was incensed by a barrage of abuse from a user known as The Master who branded the light welterweight a "disgrace" for losing his English title earlier in 2013.

"What is funny is you put so much effort in, sacrificed all of that time and failed to defend your Mickey Mouse title," he wrote.

"Retire immediately, you are a complete disgrace.

"Haha, you lost you silly mug, fight a 10-year-old next time if you want to actually win."

Enraged Woodhouse then came bouncing back off the ropes with a flurry of his own Twitter uppercuts by offering £1,000 to his 19,000 followers for the real name and address of the culprit.

Writing "enough is enough", the former Hull City midfielder eventually found the address and embarked on a drive saying he was going to have a chat with an "old friend".

Eventually The Master backed down and apologised to Woodhouse.

After national media attention, the boxer finally met the troll, James O'Brien on ITV Daybreak.
