When two men allegedly attacked an amateur boxing champion on the streets of Chicago, she says she fought back by punching one of her alleged assailants multiple times in the groin.

Claire Quinn, 26, won the city's Golden Gloves boxing tournament this year in her 152-pound weight class.

Quinn told Block Club Chicago she was walking to the Unanimous Boxing Gym on Sunday when a teenager approached her and asked for directions to a nearby Nike store.

When Quinn replied, she says a second man, who appeared to be older, approached from behind, shoved her to the ground, and punched her in the head before demanding her cellphone.

Quinn said she fought back by unleashing a barrage of punches to the second man's groin.

"I just kept throwing my right hand to his balls," Quinn told the website. "There's no way to sugar coat that or put it nicely."

"A man hits me, I'm firing back," she said.

Both men fled the scene, according to Quinn.

She said a witness sprinted after one of the men and saw him get into a green car, possibly a Honda Civic.

Quinn suffered bruises and a mild concussion, according to the New York Post.

Authorities are looking for the two suspects, described as being approximately 16 to 18 years old and weighing between 140 and 160 pounds, according to a police spokesperson.
