Champion Boxer Deontay Wilder

Knocks Out Internet Troll

... In Real Life

YOU GOTTA SEE THIS!!!!!
Undefeated heavyweight champion boxer Deontay Wilder BEAT THE HELL out of a real life Internet troll who had been harassing him for years ... and TMZ Sports has the insane video. 

The guy who got his face bashed in is Charlie Zelenoff -- a wannabe fighter who's been trolling Wilder for years with harassing phone calls and deeply personal jabs on social media. 

Wilder claims Charlie has not only hurled racial slurs at him -- but also made disparaging comments about his young daughter, who was diagnosed with spina bifida. 

Zelenoff had recently challenged Wilder to fight him at a boxing gym in L.A. -- and Wilder, deciding enough was enough, met him at the Hollywood Boxing Gym late Wednesday night. 

Wilder tried to fight Zelenoff in the ring -- but CZ threw a cheap shot and ran for the door (see video below).

When he finally returned, they squared off on the main floor of the gym -- and what ensued was a pure ass kicking. 

When Zelenoff picked himself up off the floor ... a furious Wilder told him, "Don't you ever call me a n**ger again. Don't you ever say you're going to tape my daughter." 

Zelenoff eventually ran from the building ... again ... but not before saying, "I'm the best. I'm still the best."

Sure you are.

I am an amateur boxer and I am familiar with this guy Charlie Zelenoff. This guy is a compete poser. He is a wanna be boxer. All he does is go to differrent gyms and brag about himself. He talks so much **** but cannot back it up. Deontay Wilder is a highly ranked boxer , he is the real deal , Zelenoff is not. He has got his ass kicked numerous times but still talks ****. Look how he's still talking **** after getting beat down. What an ******* !

It's extremely sad to see both Deontay Wilder try and fight this man as well as TMZ report it in such a way. A quick Google and Youtube search reveals that he is clearly suffering from delusions.

As usual TMZ oversold the video. I expected to see a guy layed out face first. That was just a bunch of jabbering.

The guy deserved an ass kicking. He may want to troll Wilder but he crossed the line when he brought his child into it.

I must commend Wilder for the restraint he shows. If it was Mike Tyson, he'd just kill him. This guy needs to be committed.
