George Zimmerman made headlines again earlier in the week when it was announced that he would be taking part in a celebrity boxing match. On Feb. 4, TMZ reports that an opponent has been announced to fight him in the Mar. 1 bout.

After 15,000 requests to fight Zimmerman in the celebrity boxing match, one opponent was named and it might get real interesting. DMX was chosen from the applicant pool and he vows to give Zimmerman quite a beating.

Many famous and not so famous signed up for the upcoming match. Among them was The Game, who would have easily dominated Zimmerman with his 6'4" 250 pound frame.

On the other hand, DMX stands 5'11" and weighs in somewhere between 175 and 200 pounds. Zimmerman is a slight 5'7" and has visibly lost weight since weighing in at 250 pounds when arrested for the death of Trayvon Martin.

TMZ reported that Zimmerman may actually stand a chance, being that he has been training for several months now. On the other hand, DMX is entering the ring with anger and he certainly has something to prove. A loss to George Zimmerman would completely kill his credibility. It just isn't going to happen.
