DMX will get in the ring with George Zimmerman in a boxing match organized by celebrity boxing promoter Damon Feldman, TMZ reports.
The Yonkers-bred rapper was reportedly picked out of 15,000 applicants who wanted to fight Zimmerman, the former neighborhood watchman whose acquittal for the murder of unarmed Florida teen Trayvon Martin sparked a worldwide outrage last year.
DMX, who has struggled with drug, legal, and financial troubles over the years, first expressed interest in fighting Zimmerman last week, when news of the boxing match broke on TMZ.
“I am going to beat the living f— out him,” he told the website. ” I am breaking every rule in boxing to make sure I f— him right up.”
There’s no word yet on when or where the boxing match will take place — but do you even care? Would you support this “celebrity boxing” event? Tell us in the comments.
