It has been confirmed that DMX has signed on to fight George Zimmerman in a celebrity boxing match.
Boxing promoter, Damon Feldman, choose DMX out of 15,000 “applicants” who all wanted to fight George Zimmerman. Gee I wonder why?
X hasn’t officially signed the contract but has said that he will “beat his ass”.
Let’s hope so.
**Update**: And just like that, the DMX/George Zimmerman fight has been cancelled. The promoter hit up twitter to explain why.
The George Zimmerman fight is canceled I’m sorry for anyone I hurt with this but this was a very big opportunity thank you. I want to thank everyone for the good n bad comments I’ve made the choice to cancel the fight w George Zimmermann more to life then money. It was my decision to cancel the george zimmerman fight it was worth a lot of money to me but people’s feelings meant more to me. I walked away from av million dollar payday with this fight but to be honest I’d rather be happy and make people happy thank you.
It was touted as “celebrity boxing match”, which understandably rubbed some people the wrong way as considering a guy whose suspected of murdering a 17 year a celebrity is not in good taste.
