Former Chelsea, Swansea and Brighton striker Leon Knight has caused a Twitter storm after challenging a user to a street fight.

When the time and place got arranged, Knight travelled in his car towards East London taking photos along the way. 

The winner will get £3,000, according to the bet put on by Knight, and his Twitter rival Aran Nicol.

He promised to make "light work" of the 19-year-old.

The unemployed Knight, was last seen in football playing for Glentoran in 2012, but was suspended following tweets of a homophobic nature.

He also tweeted, regarding his scrap: "I'm just showin people Twitter can get real. I know he ain't coming but I'll fully be there."

The angered Chelsea player of four-years also tweeted: "If he is old enough to run his lips he is old enough to get f***** up! - light work."

This isn't the first time Knight has had a lot to say over the social networking site. He was suspended by Twitter chiefs after repeatedly posting photographs of nude women, sent in by their ex-boyfriends, without their permission.

Furthermore, he staged a Twitter feud with WAG Danielle Lloyd, who felt she had to alert the police and lawyers to put a stop to the tirade of abuse coming her way from the journeyman striker. 

The former professional footballer has gone from being watched and enjoyed by thousands in the crowd at games, to laughed at as he shamefully challenges teenagers to street fights. A career spiral if ever there was one.
