George Zimmerman Boxing Match "Is Not Cancelled," According To Promoter

DMX's involvement is not confirmed, but the promoter says he has received oemajor offers from people in Hip Hop" who wish to fight Zimmerman.

Damon Feldman, the promoter of the potential DMX and George Zimmerman fight, says the match has not been cancelled, rescinding Twitter updates he recently made regarding the match's cancellation. 

“I sent those [cancellation] Tweets because I went through an emotional situation," Feldman says in an interview with The Source. "I looked at my kids and I got emotional. I didn’t sleep for three days because I’m trying to figure out how this thing happened. As of right now, the fight is not canceled.

“Right now we’re in meetings as we talk," Feldman adds. "Zimmerman still wants to fight, but I’m trying to find out what direction to go in. I have a plan, though." 

While DMX is a potential opponent in a boxing match with Zimmerman, the match-up has not been confirmed. If DMX is not involved, Feldman says he has received “major offers from people in Hip Hop." 

DMX's representative Domenick Nati recently addressed the boxing match in a statement to HipHopDX. 

"Damon Feldman has announced that the George Zimmerman fight is cancelled via his Twitter," Nati said in a statement. "As previously stated, DMX never agreed to the fight and we thank you for all of the support from DMX's fans. This situation will not affect any of DMX's upcoming concerts in America or around the world." When asked if DMX would not be involved in the fight in the future, Nati said, "I can't say that yet."  

A petition has been started to stop the boxing match from taking place. More than 72,000 people have signed the petition at press time. More on the petition can be viewed here

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 years old.

    Now, if it were legal to fight bare -knuckles to death, then George Zimmerman has been warned, and so, if he jumps in a ring with ANYBODY knowing that there are no rules and that this is in essence a street fight, then he assumed the risk for jumping on the bandwagon. I hope that he does fight because if he does, DMX will in all likelihood kill him and then we can all forget about EVER hearing about a George Zimmerman again, not unless his sissified brother comes up in a boxing ring and start prancing around with a summer dress on with high-heel pumps...

    Really upsetting how it took only a few days to get 100,000 people to sign a petition to get Justin Bieber out of the US, but we can't get the same number to stop this dam fight from happening.

    "they gon set a broke ass guy with legal debt against a millionaire rapper? you tell me who is the punk" That broke ass guy pocketed 230k from people over the internet before the trial started. X looks like the desperate fuck in need of quick money.

    Hey guys my name is Malone. I've come to this post to do some redecorating and remodeling. I hope you all don't mind. For the next hour or so you may find it difficult to post. Please don't be upset with me. I'm simply the hammer striking the nail. Hiphopdx is allowing me another trolls to do this for some reason. Maybe they've given up on the people. Sincerely Yours -Malone

      Obviously the gun wasn't illegal, or else he would have received a charge. Just face the fact that trayvon the n!gger was a gangbanger that got what he deserved. End of story

      Another dead ni66er I laughed and cheered.

      I disagree with anonymous below me. Zimmerman had no right possessing a firearm in the first place. He was carrying that firearm illegally and he is not a police officer. Further more Zimmerman's past indicated that he was denied being hired as a police officer because he failed the psych evaluation to qualify. In the grand scheme of things Zimmerman really had no business being where he was the day of Trayvon's death Sincerely Yours -Malone
