Boxing promoter Damon Feldman confirmed that DMX, 43, is scheduled to fight against George Zimmerman, 30, in a boxing match, according to TMZ.
DMX, reportedly one of 15,000 applicants who wanted to box against Zimmerman, recently spoke about his desire to participate in the boxing match.
"I am going to beat the living fuck out him,” DMX said of Zimmerman, who agreed to a boxing match against a celebrity. "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 muthafckin' face...Zimmerman is a piece of shit and that’s what he needs to drink."
The official date, time and location of the boxing match are set to be announced Wednesday, February 12. The boxing match is slated to last three rounds.
DMX was not the only rapper to volunteer to enter the boxing match. Game also said he was willing to box against George Zimmerman.
"I will beat the fuck out of him," Game said recently, according toTMZ. "I would not be boxing for me. I'd be boxing for the legacy of Trayvon Martin and for his family...I would box him to knock him out. I would definitely take pleasure in it. It's legal, and I want to show him you can solve your disputes without a weapon."
In July 2013, George Zimmerman was found not guilty of second degree murder and manslaughter. He was accused of murdering Trayvon Martin in 2012. Martin was 17.
