DRUNKEN JOHN JOE'S RANT AT GARDA; BOXING CHAMP'S SHAME Nevin asks 'Do you know who I am?' after brawl outside pub.

Byline: BRIAN MCDONALD

BOXER John Joe Nevin asked a garda "Do you know who I am?" after a boozy row outside a pub, a court heard yesterday.

The hearing was also told the Olympic medallist said, "Don't f***ing tell me what I do" when asked to move on. The 25-year-old admitted a public order offence outside a Mullingar pub and paid [euro]500 to the poor box.

The court heard Nevin had 12 pints of beer during a nine-hour session before the street row.

Judge Seamus Hughes told him: "I want you to do your fighting inside the ring - not outside it."
