In 2017, Zelenoff challenged Floyd Mayweather to a fight and ended up trying to defend himself in the ring throughout the fight.

He also has a personal YouTube channel with more than 20,000 subscribers, who are apparently eager to see his posts of challenges and fights, and his videos have attracted millions of views.

Charlie Zelenoff BoxRec
Although Charlie always claims to be the greatest boxer of all time as well as a champion, the same is not reflected on his boxing record. According to BoxRec.com, Zelenoff holds a boxing record of 0-1 since he was disqualified in his debut bout in the welterweight division which was against Andrew Hartley.
Zelenoff is considered one of the greatest internet boxing celebrities, although it might be for the wrong reasons. Although disqualified in his only professional boxing match for repeatedly spitting out his gum shield, he still considers himself to be the greatest of all time (GOAT).
He often boasts of knocking out many heavyweights, using his 4500 psi punches that apparently carry as much power as a meteorite. Charlie once hit the headlines when he got knocked around in response by Deontay Wilder after he threatened him. Also, his sparring session with Floyd Mayweather, Sr. made him famous. The session did not last long, and at the end he had to crawl out of the ring after trying to punch a man more than twice his age.
This did not deter him from trashing opponents, or change his attitude towards boxing. He still claims to be undefeated, and the whole boxing fraternity doesn’t know how to react towards his antics and instead chose to ignore him entirely. Actually, they think of him as a person with delusions of grandeur, with some of his viewers categorizing him as ‘a Muppet clown serving Illuminati’.
