HERO: British kickboxer Imam Barlow helped rescue an English family and recover a €27,000 watch after she and her boyfriend punched and kicked two robbers

A BRITISH kickboxer on holiday in Spain has beat up Spanish robbers attacking an English family. 

Iman Barlow, 26, nicknamed ‘Pretty Killer’ was living it up with her boxer boyfriend in Mallorca.


But the athletic pair stepped in when they saw a family being robbed in Palma Nova and even managed to recover a €27,000 watch.

The thieves pinned the dad down and tried to take his watch, before fleeing on a moped, the Sun reported.

But as they sped off Iman kicked one of them in the chest, before her man Stan Stannard, 26 punched the other robber.

The crime-fighting sweethearts have now returned to their Melton Mowbray home following the incident on Saturday.

Imam kicked the man in the chest to ‘slow him down’, according to the Sun.

She added: “He carried on running and then a young girl shouted ‘he’s got my dad’s watch’ so Stan ran after him and hit him with a left hand punch.

“Afterwards you start thinking he could have had a knife or a gun but instinct just kicked in at the time.

“We were given €50 from the family as a reward which we didn’t want.

“But she refused to let us leave without it.

“So now we’re enjoying our last afternoon in Mallorca with some free burgers.”

Imam has over 17,000 followers on Instagram and has won 88 of her 97 fights, 36 of which were knockouts.
