Promoter Cancels Zimmerman Boxing Match Against DMX
On Jan. 31, news broke that George Zimmerman was getting in the ring with rapper DMX for a celebrity boxing match.
Other reports soon emerged suggesting Zimmerman wanted to fight Kanye West because he believed West beat up on “defenseless people” but the final decision put Zimmerman in the ring with DMX to raise money for an animal shelter.
From the get-go, The Pablo Show, DJ Heat and I were not happy about the fight. We even went as far as to sign a petition to stop it.
This morning, news broke that the fight has been canceled. It seems the promoter, Damon Feldman, grew a conscience and backed out of the fight.
Feldman announced the cancellation on Twitter:
Done with George Zimmerman if you had a major payday sitting in front of you , I know no one else would walk away like I did ***Next!!—
