Boxing promoter Damon Feldman chose DMX to fight Zimmerman in what he calls a no all-out war.
Out of 15,000 emails, Feldman went with DMX — who a few thousand people suggest.
Feldman said security will be tight and both men will wear the proper gear for the fight. He said guidelines will be used as in previous matches.
“It’s not going to be an all-out war,” he said.
But DMX might not be aware of such guidelines.
“I am breaking every rule in boxing to make sure I f**k him right up,” DMX told TMZ.
“I will beat the f**k out of him. I would not be boxing for me. I’d be boxing for the legacy of Trayvon Martin and for his family.” But The Game cost too much money.
Also, Rev. Al Sharpton added his two cents to the news.
“We must be very careful not to glorify or in any way sidestep the implications of making someone whose only claim to fame was killing an unarmed young man named Trayvon Martin into a cultural celebrity or hero. He has the right to pursue whatever he wants in life, yet we also have the obligation to be discerning about who we lift and to what level. It is perfectly legal for him to exploit his fame but we should never forget what he is famous for and not behave like he is a celebrity based on gifts or talent or contributions to society. I am concerned about the precedent that it sets.”
The match is expected to happen on March 15 and all proceeds to the Internet fight will go to charity, but that contract has to be signed first.
“The boxing match between George Zimmerman and DMX is not officially confirmed. DMX has promised to ‘beat his a**,’ 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,” his reps told Huffington Post.
