[Video] George Zimmerman to Fight Rapper “The Game” or DMX in Celebrity Boxing Match
So, apparently, George Zimmerman is going to do a celebrity boxing match on March 1.
So far, the top two contenders to fight Zimmerman are rapper The Game and DMX, although the match’s promoter has not yet made a final decision on who will be involved in the fight.
The Game talked with the fight promoter on TMZ Live and insisted he would take the match. The Game is 6’5″ tall and weighs in at 240 lbs. Zimmerman is reportedly 5’7″ tall and most likely somewhere around 200 lbs (give or take 15 lbs).
DMX has also emerged as a possible contender for the fight saying he would urinate on Zimmerman after knocking him out. DMX also said he would expect to go to jail following the match.
All of Zimmerman’s proceeds from the fight will reportedly go to charity.
The match’s promoter says Zimmerman is doing this because of his love for boxing and wanting to do something for charity.
The fight will supposedly be shown on pay per view over the internet, at an undisclosed location and security will be very tight.
Zimmerman has been a controversial figure following the 2012 shooting of Trayvon Martin and his 2013 acquittal over the incident. Zimmerman has also been in the news twice over domestic abuse claims in the last year, although charges were not filed in either of those cases.
