George Zimmerman may be one of the most hated people in the world, but that has not stopped him from trying to stay in the spotlight. According to a Jan 30 story published by TMZ, he has agreed to a celebrity boxing match. While there are a countless number of people that are wanting to fight him, his opponent has not been announced.

The event is the brainchild of Damon Feldman. Feldman is a world renowned boxing promoter, and he has offered Zimmerman money to square off against another combatant. Unfortunately for George, guns will not be allowed in the match. However, this may not be a problem. According to sources, George Zimmerman has become obsessed with training for his boxing match.

Many of the details about the fight are still being finalized. However, there are a couple of facts that are known. Sources close to the event state that Zimmerman would be willing to fight a black person, but the promoter is not looking to make it a “race thing”. The other piece of information available about the event is that George Zimmerman’s winnings will be donated to charity.
