  • Rosenberg was an errand boy for a millinery shop at Second Avenue & Eighth Street in NYC in 1921, earning $6.00 per week, before he got into boxing.
  • According to the December 1953 issue of The Ring, p. 12: "Rosenberg, whose real name was Charles Green became Phil Rosenberg, when a fighter of that name failed to show up one evening, and he came out of the audience to fill in for the absentee and also adopt his moniker."
  • It appears that he had at least one fight as "Charley Green": on 15 August 1921
