George Zimmerman, who was acquitted of the murder of 17-year old Trayvon Martin last year, has been in the headlines quite a bit in recent months--most notably for his arrest following a domestic dispute with his girlfriend--but the latest news is going viral.
Zimmerman will reportedly fight rapper DMX in a celebrity boxing match later this year, and DMX is ecstatic about the opportunity.
"I am going to beat the living fuck out him," he told TMZ. "I am breaking every rule in boxing to make sure I fuck him right up. Once I am done with him, I am going to whip my dick out and piss on him, right in his motherfucking face."
Although DMX says he wants to do it for "every black person who has been done wrong in the system", Zimmerman's promoter says they don't want the match to be about race.
"We're not looking at it as a race thing ... We haven't discussed purple, yellow, white, black," Damon Feldman said.
The fight will last for 3 rounds and will take place on March 1, but it won't be officially announced until next week. Zimmerman says he plans to donate any winnings to charity.
Zimmerman was arrested last November after his girlfriend, Samantha Scheibe, called 911 and said that he was threatening her with a gun during an argument and had broken her belongings. He was taken into custody, but Scheibe later requested that the felony domestic violence charges be dropped, saying that police had misunderstood what she said.
“I want to be with George,” Scheibe said in a sworn statement. “I do not want George Zimmerman charged. I make this decision freely, knowingly and voluntarily, without any intimidation coercion or undue influences. I believe that the police misinterpreted me and that I may have misspoken about certain facts in my statement to the police… George never pointed a gun at or toward my face in a threatening manner,” she says. “Further, I request that the Seminole County State Attorney’s Office not be allowed to harass me because I do not wish to take part in any prosecution of this case on behalf of the State.”
