Charlie Zelenoff is a Russian-American troll champ and a self-proclaimed boxer that prides himself as the best in the world, contrary to records. He challenges his opponents to a boxing bout, then springs an unexpected attack on them while they are still trying to get set for the fight. This always throws his opponent off guard and he’ll go ahead to proclaim himself the winner.
This has been his signature for years and he has tried it on many boxers, including the iconic Floyd Mayweather Sr. Stay on our page, as we bring you the bio, net worth, and facts about Charlie Zelenoff, the self-proclaimed ‘World Best’ boxer.
