Who is Charlie Zelenoff?

Charlie Zelenoff is an American professional boxer, who became famous mostly due to his claims that he has a record of 240 victories without a single defeat. However, the truth is rather different, as professional boxing organizations state otherwise.

Age, Childhood, and Education

Charles Peter Zelenoff was born on the 27th July 1988, in Los Angeles, California, USA; both his parents are Russians, who moved to the US before Charlie’s birth.

He went to Fairfax High School, where he first showcased a desire towards becoming a professional boxer. His parents supported his intentions, and he started attending the gym on a daily basis.


As his body developed, Charlie started training in boxing, and from his earliest years began challenging other boxers and amateurs, while also paying them to fight him. This led to a lot of controversy behind his name, especially as at some point in his career, Charlie started claiming that he has a record of 240 victories without a single defeat.

However, according to BoxRec, his record is 0-1, as he lost in his debut brawl against Andrew Hartley. Charlie also challenged Floyd Mayweather to whom he lost, as the fight ended soon after it started. He also sparred with Floyd Mayweather Sr. and this session also didn’t last long – Charlie barely got out of the ring; he had to crawl to the ropes.

In recent events of his career, Charlie started a feud with Deontay Wilder, who Charlie challenged to a fight through a mobile phone call. Deontay accepted his challenge, and the two got into a fight at a Los Angeles gym. The result of the fight was Charlie lying on the gym’s floor, knocked out with hands on his face, trying to defend from Wilder’s punches. This made Charlie even more popular with the public, though it only brought negative attention.
