As Greenberg makes his way up the rankings this 6 foot 3 inch, 240 lbs fighting machine hasn't forgotten his roots. Born in Russia, Roman and his family fled to Israel due rising anti-Semitism. They thought life would be better in Israel, but soon found out the hard way that bad luck can find you anywhere. The family was hit by hard times and ended up living on the streets. Looking back, Roman knows that the hard times hr experienced contributed to his ability to fight and focus on his dream. In addition, Roman narrowly escaped a bombing at a Tel Aviv nightclub a few years ago. 'When I think of that, the dangers of boxing seem relatively unimportant,' says Roman.
Roman's manager and promoter Robert Waterman saw Roman in a gym, and brought him to England where he trains under Jim Evans. Roman now lives in the UK and firmly believes with the same confidence he has in the ring that "I will be World Champion. Watch me".
