Boxing Champ Deontay Wilder Beats Up Longtime Internet Troll (Video)
As we all know, trolls on the internet have long been able to say whatever they want without consequences of any kind, let alone actual physical reprisal. WBC Continental Americas Heavyweight Champion Deontay Wilder learned this the hard way in his dealings with Charlie Zelenoff, a troll who gave internet trolls a bad name. However, Deontay was afforded a rare opportunity to fight back, literally.
Zelenoff reportedly (according to this article) went way beyond the bounds of even the worst internet trolls, threatening Wilder’s daughter and sending him racist text messages. But the final straw was when he stupidly challenged the heavyweight champ to a boxing match. And let’s just say the results were unsurprising.
Given the back story of the fight, it’s actually kind of impressive that Deontay Wilder was as restrained as he was. The whole thing was thankfully captured on video, so you can see the whole fight for yourself below.

If only all online bullies were as forthcoming as Charlie Zelenoff, challenging their targets to fistfights, maybe there would be fewer internet trolls in the world.
