Black world champion mistaken for laptop thief


LIMA: Black boxer Carlos Zambrano, the WBA world featherweight champion, claims he was stopped by armed police investigating a laptop theft despite the fact he was pursuing the thieves himself. “They saw this little black guy at the wheel and then they said the little black guy is the thief,” the 31-year-old told Canal N television in Lima. The incident took place on Wednesday morning when his computer was stolen outside a fast food restaurant in the San Borja area of the Peruvian capital. Zambrano described the incident as a “racial issue” because “how is it possible that they could take me for the thief when they saw my car behind.”
