Instead of our buddy Mark Behar who volunteered to lay the smackdown on George Zimmerman the honour has fallen to rap star DMX.
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.
Rapper The Game expressed a keen interest in fighting Zimmerman, but it looks as thou DMX has been chosen as the favorite out of 15,000 entries !
However, Damon Feldman, Owner of Celebrity Boxing, had the honour in choosing who would fight Mr.Zimmerman. He told E! News:
“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.
As 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.”
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.
Will DMX live up to his name of being a Ruff Rider or will there be a shock on the cards. Yall gon make me lose ma mind up in here, up in here
