Over the past week, a potential boxing match between George Zimmerman and rapper DMX has become an increased topic of conversation. Reverend Al Sharpton even weighed in on the controversial event, which is being dubbed a celebrity boxing match, during his MSNBC show expressed interest in boxing rapper Kanye West during the match, but since that time DMX has been named as a possible competitor.

A petition calling for an end to the match has also been created; it states that Zimmerman and promoter Damon Feldman are “using murder and racial hate in America for profit.” Those behind the petition are hoping to receive 100,000 signatures before March 4.

This month marks two years since Zimmerman gunned down Martin in Sanford, Florida and was later acquitted of second-degree murder and manslaughter charges in a highly-publicized trial held last year.
