    Default Zimmerman Will Fight Rapper DMX

    There's about to be a brawl...up in here, up in here.
    E! News confirmed George Zimmerman will face off against rapper DMX in the ring for a Celebrity Boxing Match next month as Floyd Mayweather Sr. referees. The thought of going head-to-head in the ring was actually Zimmerman's idea, telling Radar Online last month that boxing is his hobby.

    Once celebs caught wind of the event, a number of them volunteered to go against Zimmerman, who stood trial for second-degree murder and manslaughter for shooting Trayvon Martin but was acquitted.

    Rapper The Game made it known he was more than willing to box Zimmerman. When a fan asked the celeb on Twitter today whether he was picked to fight, Game tweeted back, "nah he scared !!! Said DMX more his size lol."

    However, Damon Feldman, Owner of Celebrity Boxing, tells E! News that they ended up picking who would fight Zimmerman.
    "He didn't chose them, we had over 15,000 emails...everybody was putting their hat in there trying to fight him and basically it was getting overwhelming with the emails and we had to make a decision," Feldman tells us.
    So what made them choose DMX? "Well, you know there's a lot of celebrities that wanted a good brawl, it's very controversial, celebrity boxing is," he says.

    s for the money that will be raised from the event, Feldman tells E! News, "Right now this isn't a charity match at all. Whatever Zimmerman does with his money that's up to him, that's our company money, I don't know what DMX is doing, we're still negotiating a contract deal with him now."
    Regardless, DMX spokesman Domenick Nati told CNN Wednesday, "DMX has promised to 'beat his ass.'"
    The date of the fight will be March 15 and any additional information will be announced at the press conference next Wednesday in Philadelphia at 2 p.m.

    Although you may already be itching to see the brawl, not everyone is supporting the idea of these two throwing punches. Rev. Al Sharpton reportedly told a Los Angeles group Wednesday that he was concerned "about the precedent that it sets."
    "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," Sharpton said.

    A petition has been launched on Change.org calling for the planned boxing event to be canceled. "This is a blatant show of disrespect and nothing positive or righteous would come from such a stunt," it reads.

    If this is a pay-per-view event...whatever they're charging, they couldn't pay me ten times that amount to watch it.

    I can't remember one celebrity boxing event where I didn't root for a double knockout. This one is no different.

    I remember Fox Celebrity Boxing from years ago... and it did well in the ratings. Those were shown for free and even Fox had the sense to cancel these because of the cesspool these bouts were. I wonder what promoters will try to charge to watch this DMX/Zimmerman debacle.

    Also... I think the funniest moment in Fox Celebrity Boxing for me was when Manut Bol fought William "The Refrigerator" Perry and the announcer said when they stood toe to toe that "they looked like the number 10".

    DMX has one bad ass song. I listen to it when I work out and it gets me pumped up.

    that said if Zimmerman knocks him out or somehow wins this fight the guys rap days are over. I don't know how a "tough" rapper would ever live that down.

    Do you think DMX will show up wearing a hoodie and eating a box of skittles.
