Alabama native and boxing champ Deontay Wilder knocks out Internet troll in real life

Well-known Internet troll Charlie Zelenoff got what was coming to him earlier this week when he met Tuscaloosa, Ala. native and undefeated heavyweight boxing champion Deontay Wilder.

A TMZ article accompanying a video of the meeting said that Zelenoff has been trolling Wilder online and over the phone for years, spewing racism and even ridiculing Wilder’s daughter, who was diagnosed with spina bifida.

After challenging Wilder to fight him in the ring and signing a waiver stating he would not sue Wilder for whatever happened, the two finally met in person.

Wilder dropped him multiple times while Zelenoff ran around the gym trying to escape.

“You’re not going to mess with nobody else!” Wilder said while imploring Zelenoff to get up after being knocked down. “All of this is going to stop… Don’t you ever call me a n***** again. Don’t you ever say you’re going to hurt my daughter.”

Fortunately for Zelenoff, others in attendance broke up the fight, but that didn’t stop Zelenoff from continuing to talk trash on his way out the door.

“I could have knocked you out outside,” Zelenoff proclaimed as several men restrained Wilder. “I’m still the best.”
