Boxing legend Chris Eubank has revealed how he was mugged for his £400 Louis Vuitton bag while out in west London.

The former WBO middleweight and super-middleweight champion says he was left ‘stunned’ when the brazen mugger grabbed the designer clutch bag from his hands in Edgware Road.

The 55-year-old former fighter and I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here star says the mugging took place after he walked out of a Barclays bank branch.

He said the bandana he wore while taking part in the hit ITV reality show was in the bag at the time.  

Ms 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.

Boxing legend Chris Eubank has revealed how he was mugged for his £400 Louis Vuitton bag (pictured left: Mr Eubank with his bag) while out in west London. The former WBO middleweight and super-middleweight champion (pictured right in the ring) says he was left ‘stunned’ when the brazen mugger grabbed the designer clutch bag from his hands in Edgware Road.

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

Mr Eubank said the ‘brazen’ but ‘well-dressed’ crook made off so fast he didn’t have time to chase him.

Instead, the retired boxer said he ran back into the bank to report the mugging and the police were called.  

‘It’s a sign of the times – they don’t care about confronting someone like me, so nobody is immune,’ he told the Evening Standard.

Mr Eubank says the bag has sentimental value as he has owned it since 1992 and the French fashion house no longer makes them. 

He said a bar of Waitrose Belgian chocolate with hazelnuts was also swapped.

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.’ 

Police say 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.
