George Zimmerman to box DMX, with Floyd Mayweather Sr. as guest referee

According to a Feb. 5 report from EOnline.com, hard-hitting knockout artist George Zimmerman will battle superstar rap artist DMX on March 15 in a celebrity boxing match.

Floyd Mayweather Sr. is set to serve as guest referee for the bout.

“I am going to beat the living f*ck out him … I am breaking every rule in boxing to make sure I f*ck him right up,” and, “Once I am done with him, I am going to whip my d*ck out and p*ss on him … right in his muthaf*ckin face,” and, “Zimmerman is a piece of sh*t and that’s what he needs to drink," DMX reportedly said.

Zimmerman, 30, is well-known for the fatal shooting of Trayvon Martin on Feb. 26, 2012, in Sanford, Florida.

His case hurt race relations in the United States, as the shooting results in the death of a 17-year-old African-American who was unarmed at the time of his death.

Rev. Al Sharpton is apparently not a fan of the DMX vs Zimmerman boxing match, because he's afraid of the precedent it sets.

"We must be very careful not to glorify or in any way sidestep the implications of making someone whose only claim to fame was killing an unarmed young man named Trayvon Martin into a cultural celebrity or hero," Sharpton said.

Celebrity Boxing owner Damon Feldman said it was his decision who would fight Zimmerman.

"He didn't chose them, we had over 15,000 emails...everybody was putting their hat in there trying to fight him and basically it was getting overwhelming with the emails and we had to make a decision," Feldman said.

Feldman added that the money made from the event will not be going to charity.

"Right now this isn't a charity match at all," Feldman said. "Whatever Zimmerman does with his money that's up to him, that's our company money, I don't know what DMX is doing, we're still negotiating a contract deal with him now."

Zimmerman vs DMX is expected to be a pay-per-view event that anyone with a television set could purchase.
