'Jersey' Knockout Victim:

I Got Sucker Punched

1/20/2010 8:17 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The guy who Ronnie knocked out cold in last week's episode of "Jersey Shore" claims he got sucker punched in the back of the head -- and now the guy says he wants a rematch with his new nemesis.

Stephen Izzo tells TMZ he was trying to fight MTV security after they broke up his group's expletive-filled tussle with the "Jersey" cast -- when Ronnie came out of nowhere and delivered a haymaker to the back of his head. Izzo says the cuts on his face were caused by his sudden headfirst fall into the unforgiving brick ground below.

Izzo now wants a rematch with Ronnie ... and this time he wants it to be a fair fight.

BTW: Ronnie was arrested after the knockout, and Izzo says he's gonna show up for Ronnie's court appearance in a couple of weeks.

Word, it's not like he was "creeping", up on him. He was calling him back, I hope MTV release the punch on T.V. or when it hit's DVD.

TMZ is so manipulative.. u think this kid said he was fighting sercurity as well as condesending the unforgiving pavement.... This dude was assualted and Ronnie is going to pay for his uncontrolled roid rage temper... How Rude Tmz, for sticking up for that slime ball Ronnie..... The Jersey shore cast is rude, arrogant, trashy and their 15 minutes of fame is up... Even Sleazide doesn't want them back.....

Ronnie wants to be a bartender when he grows up. AWESOME!!!!! Maybe if the cops did their jobs this would not have happened in the first place. There were plenty of times during the show that these characters were kicking private awning, yelling, screaming right past the cops and nothing was done. TMZ if you really want a story then dig up the contract that MTV had with SLEE Side. Seems to me that these characters had special treatment becouse they were on the show. Slee side is all about the money and they must have gotten a big payoff for this disaster. Good job with this one, sleeside really knows how to bring in tourist, id rather vacation in camden

What a punk. I love clowns like this, who pick fights and then cry to the cops after they get what they were asking for.

Take your KO like a man and try to learn a lesson, ya crybaby!

If he's from New Jersey, I'm SURE he DESERVED it.

NJ just breeds TRASH. Seriously... a bunch of worthless guttersnipes. They should round up all that evilness and build a sky-high electric fence on steroids and keep those wild animals in their hole to tear each other apart so we don't have to deal w/ them CLUTTERING up the world. No joke. They're baaaaaaad.

But I wish him well. :]

I agree with T and Brujo. This a-hole was calling Ronnie back and Ronnie when back swinging. That's what you get....BIOTCH! Also, I love MTV's violence policy. They show JWOW cat fighting with some girl at a bar, Ronnie is seen throwing down on the boardwalk, and then cameras are rolling as JWOW nails Mike in the face. But they couldn't show Snookie's K.O.? Senseless....

What is interesting is that people from the North usually say people from the South are trash - well this shows proves that trash is EVERYWHERE!!!!!!!! Money, fame & being stupid may get people noticed but it doesn't give them class.
