“Champion Boxer Deontay Wilder Knocks Out Internet Troll … “

Like a dream come true, this must have seemed. The back story:

In this corner, standing 6’7″ tall and weighing 215 lbs., undefeated WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder, who has won 31 consecutive decisions by knockout. His opponent: Charlie Zelenoff, a YouTube troll who boasts about his boxing skills and has allegedly been harassing Wilder and his family for three years.

You can already guess how this is going to go.

Wilder squared off against Zelenoff last week after the notorious YouTube loudmouth—known for claiming 28 professional knockouts, but actually having little to no pro boxing experience—challenged him to a fight. Zelenoff’s ass was, unsurprisingly, gift-wrapped and handed to him.

Zelenoff’s accounts of his fights tend to diverge from observable reality, and this is no exception. Talking to TMZ about his absolute drubbing at the hands of Wilder, he said, “I was caught off-guard. He just got lucky.”


So.  You keeping up out there in Peoria, kitten?

  1. I got disabused of the idea that righteous indignation could overcome experience when I was in high school.

    This was after I discovered that most bullies don’t have experience.

    The operative word being “most.”

  2. DEATH THREAT or no?


  3. All the running away was fun to watch.

  4. Death threat/reality check, potato/potaaaaato.

  5. I just bet Jeff just wishes some of his internet trolls (yeah, I’m looking at you, you triple chin jag-off) showed up at the gym when he was there!

  6. Call me slow on the uptake if you like, because I am, but why weren’t they inside the ring? What was the guy’s own team holding him back. Why wasn’t there a satisfying k.o. that well and truly shuts the troll right the fuck up? Why was the video made less interesting plastered over with distractions, subscriptions, redirections, advertisements and such. Why is the white guy still walking and talking smack? Why is he still able to speak? So many questions. So few answers.

  7. “I was caught off-guard. He just got lucky.”

    ….yeah well, he had a douche bag like you for an opponent, so……
