If this isn’t the most bizarre story you’ll read this week, I don’t know what to tell you. Random yet it all kinda’ makes sense since these two are some of the more interesting characters that seemingly have permanent places in national news.
George Zimmerman (30), the man responsible for shooting unarmed teenager Trayvon Martin (17) back in February 2012, has agreed to appear on Celebrity Boxing to fight an unnamed fighter. Well, it turns out that the unnamed fighter has been sought, found and contracted. That fighter has been revealed as 43-year old rapper DMX.
Zimmerman was acquitted for the death of Trayvon, who was a student in the Miami-Dade County School System. And it now seems that DMX will gladly use this opportunity to try to avenge Trayvon’s death according DMX’s recent comments.
” I am going to beat the living f**k out him … I am breaking every rule in boxing to make sure I f**k him right up,” DMX told TMZ earlier this week. “Once I am done with him, I am going to whip my meat out and piss on him … right in his muthaf**kin face.”
Yikes. Celebrity Boxing officials also mentioned that over 15,000 emails (could be exaggerated) came in with hopes to fight Zimmerman.
And this “breaking news” may be viewed is either insensitive or intentionally timed as today is actually Trayvon’s birthday. He would have been 19.
