Promoter Cancels DMX-Zimmerman Match

By: Alexandria Sardam - February 10, 2014

The highly-discussed publicity-stunt boxing match has been canceled.

The match between rapper DMX and George Zimmerman has been called off.

“This was the wrong person to put in the ring and define celebrity boxing,” promoter Damon Feldman said Saturday on Twitter, referring to Zimmerman. He said he changed the plans because “I’d rather be happy and make people happy.”

Feldman really likes his Twitter. He’s been posting like crazy ever since the cancelation news has been announced. Wether he’s defending himself or posting promotional tweets, Feldman can’t seem to stop the tweeting madness.

DMX’s side is saying otherwise suggesting the rapper had had second thoughts. “The George Zimmerman fight is canceled,” DMX spokesman Domenick Nati said in a statement Saturday. “DMX never agreed to the fight and we thank you for all of the support from DMX’s fans.”

The East Coast-born DMX has struggled with his recent music sales. Instead, the hip-hop musician is getting more attention for his legal troubles.
