Jabs Like Gigi: Check Out the Boxing Workout That Helped Hadid Fight Back Against Creep
This knucklehead clearly messed with the wrong supermodel.
Gigi Hadid has credited her boxing skills and training in thwarting the man who grabbed her outside a venue in Milan, Italy, during Fashion Week.
When Hadid was lifted off the ground on Thursday by the assailant, she knew just what to do and drilled him with an elbow to the face.
Following the incident, the model tweeted:

Hadid has been taking boxing lessons for two years both to stay in shape and also to learn self-defense.
Inside Edition got some tips at "Work Train Fight" in New York City.
Trainer Nicole Campbell said: "Her boxing has enabled her in order to react quickly in that split second.”
She added that if someone was able to “come up behind you, right from here and throw out that elbow, react immediately and you are free.”
