George Zimmerman And DMX To Fight In Celebrity Boxing Match

Zimmerman — who told Radar Online last month that boxing was his hobby even prior to the “incident”— has been trolling for a celebrity to step into the ring with him ever since Damon Feldman, owner of Celebrity Boxing, opened his inbox to potential opponents. ”The news has been out for an hour and my e-mail is overloaded with 8,000 people wanting to fight George,” Feldman told CNN.

It turned out there are a lot of people eager to go a few rounds with Zimmerman, who was acquitted in the February 2012 “incident” in which he shot dead the unarmed Martin. Out of a final pool of 15,000 applicants, Feldman chose to put Zimmerman in the ring with rapper DMX.

Now that the match up is set, the rapper is out for blood. He told TMZ, “I am going to beat the living f–k out him … I am breaking every rule in boxing to make sure I f–k him right up.” While the 43 year old rapper intends to win, Zimmerman, 30, has been training for months.

    It pains me to see that a child killer is now a celebrity. I mean, really? What is this world coming to when this happens? Think of this child’s family and the grief they must be feeling knowing their child is dead and he is now a celebrity. Honestly, it angers me so much that if I could, I’d put GZ in a pine box and send him to meet his maker myself. On another note, if this must happen, let him for Floyd Mayweather and get his just desserts.

    As far I can tell both of them are media whores. The question is who is going to pay to watch this “fight”? I most certainly will not be wasting my money on this “event”. If GZ must fight someone I say let him fight Mayweather too. To sum this up in one word “UNBELIEVABLE” a murderer of an unarmed teen is still walking the street.
