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.[contentblock id=1 img=adsense.png] [contentblock id=1 img=adsense.png]
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).
