Heavyweight boxer Deontay Wilder taught an internet troll a lesson in respect after meeting him for a fight in a Los Angeles gym. Charlie Zelenoff, who subjected Wilder to years of abuse on social media and harassed him with phone calls, challenged the 28-year-old to a bout to settle their differences. The 2008 Olympic bronze medallist accepted Zelenoff’s offer and met him at the Hollywood Boxing Gym on Wednesday evening.
Undefeated heavyweight champion boxer Deontay Wilder BEAT THE HELL out of a real life Internet troll who had been harassing him for years … and TMZ Sports has the insane video.
The guy who got his face bashed in is Charlie Zelenoff — a wannabe fighter who’s been trolling Wilder for years with harassing phone calls and deeply personal jabs on social media.
Wilder claims Charlie has not only hurled racial slurs at him — but also made disparaging comments about his young daughter, who was diagnosed with spina bifida.
Zelenoff had recently challenged Wilder to fight him at a boxing gym in L.A. — and Wilder, deciding enough was enough, met him at the Hollywood Boxing Gym late Wednesday night.
Wilder tried to fight Zelenoff in the ring — but CZ threw a cheap shot and ran for the door (see video below).
