Sergei’s father initially inspired his interest in athletics while he was still in kindergarten when his father was teaching him. Kharitonov began training boxing seriously at the age of ten or eleven, following an incident where a drunk adult spectator broke up a fight between Sergei and another boy by raising Sergei in the air, punching him in the face, and cutting his eyebrow with that blow. He defended his actions by stating that Sergei should not have hit a downed opponent.

Kharitonov began his study of Combat Sambo at the age of sixteen. While at the Airborne Troops Academy, Sergei began competing in hand-to-hand combat and mixed martial arts. Vladimir Pogodin, the manager of the Russian Top Team, contacted Kharitonov after he graduated from the Academy and invited him to join the club.
