A professional boxer killed a dad-of-three with a single punch to the head during a drunken brawl in a South Yorkshire pub.

Daniel Gerrard, aged 30, landed the devastating blow to the neck of Robert Hurdley – killing him almost instantly.

Dinnington Rugby Club member Mr Hurdley, aged 45, was in the Don John in Maltby, Rotherham, enjoying a drink with four friends after his son’s rugby match last October when Gerrard struck.

The fighter also knocked all four of Mr Hurdley’s friends to the floor with a flurry of punches.
