Biography – Who is Charlie Zelenoff The Boxer?
There isn’t so much information about his early life, parents, siblings and all of that but it has been confirmed that the Russian-American was born in Los Angeles on the 27th of July 1988 and attended Fairfax High School in L.A.
Charlie Zelenoff obviously has a passion for boxing but since he has failed to get himself registered with a recognized boxing body/agency, he decided to take his destiny into his hands and get himself all the fame and popularity he desires in his mind and via the internet by declaring himself the best boxer in the world; he even goes around with a title belt which he claims to be the “UBF WORLD CHAMPION”.
Zelenoff has really not had any real professional fight, all he does is to trick his opponents, (victims is the appropriate word to use) to sparring round and while they are still trying to fix the punching gloves, he gives them an unexpected punch which throws them off guard. As they are still trying to understand what just happened, he asks them if they wanted more and when the reply is a NO, he turns to the camera declares himself the winner and claims another victory.
He uploads clips of his supposed fights in gyms where he knocks out amateur boxers with what he calls “4,500 PSI” power shots. He once tried his trick on Floyd Mayweather Sr during an informal exercise but Floyd taught him some lessons he will never forget in a hurry. The video of the “fight” was uploaded on YouTube in March 2017 and currently has over four million views.
There is another sensational video that trended online in which Charlie Zelenoff is seen hitting some teens during sparring bouts in a gym when a sixteen-year-old stood up to him and knocked him in and out of the ring.
The internet troll has also challenged other boxers even those outside of his weight category. He once challenged Ukrainian former professional boxer Wladimir Klitschko to a fight, claiming he would break his jaw and reduce him to nothing less than a jelly; there is another YouTube video where he was badly beaten by a heavyweight boxer Deontay Wilder. Viewers have come to the conclusion that he has a mental issue that he doesn’t want to address.
