Celebrity boxing match still on: DMX will not face George Zimmerman
George Zimmerman’s celebrity boxing match which was abruptly cancelled amid protests from thousands of citizens, is back on. But rapper DMX will not be joining the former neighborhood watchman in the ring.
Filmon.com, an online streaming service, claims to have secured the rights to a Zimmerman fight after the original promoter, Damon Feldman pulled out.
FilmOn says it’s gonna give the public what it wants — blood — and tells us DMX is out as the challenger because “much bigger names than DMX” want in.
The owner of FilmOn, Alki David, tells TMZ … the fight will no longer be a celebrity boxing match… “this is going to be like Fight Club … a very bloody event.” Alki says the fight will happen March 15 from a secret location … and all profits will go to the Trayvon Martin Foundation.
David is still negotiating with Feldman for the rights and nothing has been signed yet.
Feldman plans to reveal the details of the event tomorrow at a news conference.
