It’s official! DMX will fight George Zimmerman in a celebrity boxing match.
News broke the news this morning and it’s going down. DMX and George Zimmerman have both agreed to a boxing match according to fight promoter Damon Feldman.
Over 15,000 contenders e-mailed Damon Feldman wanting the opportunity to kick Zimmerman‘s ass, but it wasn’t until this morning George Zimmerman chose DMX.
The match will go for three rounds, and be televised on pay-per-view. Damon is known for other celebrity match ups including ones that featured Tonya Harding and Michael Lohan.
When opening up to TMZ about the fight, DMX promised to massacre Zimmerman and break every rule in boxing.
“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.”
DMX also promised to pull out his penis and piss on Zimmerman‘s face. If this happens, would it be justice for Trayvon?
UPDATE: The fight may not be a go after all! Domenick Nati of Nati Celebrity Services just provided this official statement to AllHipHop.com:
The boxing match between George Zimmerman and DMX is not officially confirmed. DMX has promised to “beat his ass”, but no contract or paperwork has been signed or agreed to yet. DMX will release an official statement if and when an agreement is made.
UPDATE #2: Fox News caught up with DMX in South Carolina to confirm the match. He says the fight isn’t set and whatever money generated, would have to go to charity. He still has the sticker on his shirt…
UPDATE #3: After a week of intense backlash fight promoter Damon Feldman has announced the forthcoming bout is officially cancelled.
Via his Twitter account, he had this to say:
