In his early years he became captain of the Russian Nation Muay Thai Team, and he has been the Chairman of the Athletes Commission at IFMA since 2012.
In one of his first big fights, he was set to compete against Simon Marcus. This was a highly anticipated fight, but for several reasons it was postponed several times. They were originally supposed to fight in December 2012, but did not end up fighting until March 2013 at Lion Fight 9 in Las Vegas. It was an extremely close fight, but Marcus displayed excellent clinch work which ultimately led to his unanimous decision win.
Levin signed with Glory in 2013 and moved up to 187 pounds. His first fight at Glory 7: Milan was against Sahak Parparyan who he defeated by an extension round decision. He then competed in the four man tournament at 187 pounds at Glory 10: Los Angeles-Middleweight World Championship Tournament in September 2013. He won his semi-finals match by decision against Jason Wilnis, but was defeated by Joe Schilling in the final. It was an exciting back and forth bout, however the fight went into an extension round where Schilling scored a controversial knockdown and ended up winning by unanimous decision.
Next, Levin was scheduled to face Hicham El Gauoi at Diamond Fight: Friendship in Russian in December 2013 for the light heavyweight title, however the match fell through for unknown reasons. Instead, his next fight took place against Robert Thomas in April 2014 at Glory 16: Denver. Levin defeated Thomas in this fight.
Levin was set to face Simon Marcus again for a highly anticipated rematch for the WMC World Light Heavyweight Championship in June 2014, however the bout was canceled so both fighters could compete at Glory 17: Los Angeles which was being held a week later.

Levin fought for his first title defense at Glory 21: San Diego against Simon Marcus and was able to successfully defend his title after the fight ended in a majority draw. Levin was deducted points yet again for excessive clinching but was quick to defend his actions by claiming they it was an active clinch because he was throwing knees. Neither fighter was happy with the draw, and Marcus was convinced he won the fight.

Yet again, Levin faced Simon Marcus at Glory 27: Chicago for his second Glory title defense which ended with another controversial decision. In the first round, Levin received a 10 count after being pushed down. Then, in the second round the referee deducted points from Levin for what was ruled excessive clinching. Frustrated with how the fight was going, Levin decided to leave the ring in the third round, giving up his title. The referee’s decisions during the fight were highly controversial, and some claim that this fight was one of the biggest embarrassments in the History of Glory. After this fight, Levin decided to leave Glory after agreeing with the promotion that both parties would mutually terminate his contract.
