Who is Charlie Zelenoff?
Born Charles Peter Zelenoff under the sign of Leo on the 27th of July 1988, in Los Angeles, California USA, Charlie (self-nicknamed ‘Z-Money’) is a 30-year-old Caucasian amateur boxer of Russian descent. He is perhaps best known to the world for making false claims about his boxing achievements, and for challenging some of the world’s greatest fighters, such as Wladimir Klitschko. He also has a YouTube account named “CHARLIE ZELENOFF”, on which he used to post episodes of the “Charlie Zelenoff TV” reality boxing show. He has been active in the sometimes lucrative amateur boxing profession over the last decade.
Early Life: Growing up in Los Angeles
Clarlie was apparently an only child, raised in his birthplace by parents of unknown identities and professions. As for his education, he attended Fairfax High School in his birthplace, from where he is believed to have matriculated in 2006; it is unknown whether he went on to college.
His Rise to Fame
At some point in the previous decade, Charlie began spreading false information about himself on the internet, specifically several message boards on which boxing aficionados like to spend their time. He claimed that he is the world’s greatest undefeated boxer who can take-on anyone in the ring. At the time, virtually no one knew whether Charlie was actually a good boxer, but he was still a frequent subject among the audiences of the sites on which he posted.
His Only Real Boxing Match
According to boxrec.com, the official site that lists all the world’s boxers, Charlie Zelenoff has a score of 0-1-0, meaning no victories, one loss, and no draws. In his first and only professional match on the 5th of March 2008, he fought in the welterweight category against Andrew Heartley, and was disqualified after losing six consecutive rounds. He has never face a formidable opponent, since that is Andrew Heartley’s second win since he went pro, with a score of 2-28-0 today and 1-13-0 at the time of the fight. Charlie has apparently decided to lay low ever since, since he is yet to make a second attempt at professional boxing, and hasn’t announced any such plans thus far.
Having a big fan base helps dealing with all the fame.

While Charlie likes to claim that he has over 100 wins as a boxer, the reality is that he takes into account every single sparring session that he has with amateur boxers, most of whom are boxing for the first time. He is usually recorded by an unknown person, and even though the ‘fights’ begin as soon as the videos start, his opponents were often seen surprised by Charlie’s actions, not because he is an incredible boxer, but because he always asks for a casual spar and ends up violently hitting the opponent with everything he has. Since he speaks of these encounters as actual matches and counts them all towards his score, many of those that found out about Charlie have come to believe that he is mentally ill, although for now this is just an allegation.
In the video that was posted by “The Smoke Room” Facebook page, entitled “16 Year Old Kid Destroys The Worlds Biggest Bully”, Charlie can be seen having one of his usual ‘matches’, except this time he finally ran into someone who could actually box. The first third of the video shows Charlie bullying his unsuspecting opponents, after which a 16-year-old African-American male can be seen in the ring with him.
The match starts the way all of Charlie’s encounters do – with violent outbursts on his part – however, the teenager successfully avoids almost all of his punches, and eventually returns them with much greater force. Charlie eventually exits the ring, but the boy follows him and starts beating him up regardless. At the end of the video, Charlie is left with a presumably broken nose (as blood can be seen leaking from it).
