AKRON, OH (WOIO) -

In his prime 84-year-old Ronald Delaney was a well known professional boxer in Akron.

"I started as an amateur in  1945 when  I was 15," said Delaney. 

But Tuesday at the First Merit bank on North Main Street, the former boxer, who never backed down from a fight, found himself defenseless. 

"BOOM he knocked me right to the ground," Delaney said. 

The hit almost knocked out one of Delaney's teeth. ​

Surveillance video captured the only picture police have of the suspect standing behind a man in a black hooded coat. 

Police describe the suspect as a black male 18-25 years old, almost 6 feet tall and weighing between 150- 160 pounds. 

If you know anything, contact police. 

And Delaney sure hopes police find this guy quick. 

He may have knocked him out once, but this fighter is ready for another round. 

"I hope they tell me when they find him so I can put some gloves on and at least have the chance to hit him back," added Delaney.
