George Zimmerman to box DMX: Rapper's bad blood overflows in celebrity matchup

George Zimmerman, watch out. Your request for a celebrity fist fight has been answered by tough guy rapper Earl Simmons, better known by his stage name DMX, who did not mince words when asked about the matchup, reports MSN on Feb. 5.

“I am going to beat the living [expletive] out him,” DMX told TMZ. The street smart rapper was one of over 15,000 people who signed up to go toe to toe with the former neighborhood watch coordinator, best known for being thrust in the spotlight in 2012 for his fatal shooting of Trayvon Martin.

“I am breaking every rule in boxing to make sure I [expletive] him right up,” DMX announced. The rapper went on to say that he will do other things to Zimmerman, too vile to post here.

Zimmerman was found not guilty last year in the shooting death of the Florida teenager, a decision that ignited outcry among many who called the trial unfair and racially biased.

Since the trial, Zimmerman has been embroiled in legal problems, including multiple allegations of domestic abuse against both his estranged wife and his current girlfriend.

DMX is no stranger to offenses either. Among the 44-year-old’s “rap sheet” include charges of animal cruelty, reckless and unlicensed driving, drug possession, and identity falsification.

The boxing match is being organized by celebrity boxing promoter Damon Feldman. The proceeds are being donated to charity.

"The match will be one of the Biggest Celebrity Boxing matches of all time," Feldman promised in a press release announcing the fight.
