Owner of Celebrity Boxing Damon Feldman is hyping up the fight, but representatives of X's camp said nothing is yet confirmed. Media Mogul Domenik Nati told Star Ledger:
"The boxing match between George Zimmerman and DMX is not officially confirmed. DMX has promised to 'beat his ass,' but no contract or paperwork has been signed or agreed to yet."
DMX was among 15,000 requested emails to fight Zimmerman and oddly he was selected. X is known in the rap industry for being a loose cannon and a drug abuser, but fans are cheering him on.
Zimmerman, who was acquitted of the second degree murder of Trayvon Martin last summer initiated the boxing idea to lose weight:
"A mutual friend put me in contact with Damon (Feldman) and provided me with an opportunity and motivation to get back in shape and continue with my weight loss goals, and also be able to help a charity out."
If the two were to meet in the ring, the match will go 3 rounds on pay-per-view; Money is up for discussion.
