George Zimmerman vs. DMX Boxing Match Canceled, Faith in Humanity Restored

'Murica, Fights

George Zimmerman

Rejoice! George Zimmerman’s boxing match with DMX has been canceled by its promoter, Damon Feldman, after widespread outrage and disgust of the event, including over 100,000 signatures on Change.org and extensive social media pushback.

Feldman announced the decision Saturday afternoon on Twitter, claiming to want to do the right thing because he cares about people’s feelings. He also mentioned, repeatedly, that he was giving up a huge payday to cancel the fight. His exact tweet:

“It was my decision to cancel the george zimmerman fight it was worth a lot of money to me but people’s feelings meant more to me”

Feldman has since deleted the tweet (though it was confirmed by media outlets), but thankfully, it doesn’t look like he’s backing out of his plans to cancel the bout. Instead, he said he’s going to announce the cancellation officially in a press conference on Tuesday. Feldman, ever classy, also reminded us yet again that his cancellation of the fight is oh so noble:

This is great news, because as much as this writer wants to see Zimmerman get, in DMX’s words, “the living f*** beat out” of him, the fight would have generated income for Zimmerman.

Zimmerman and Travon's daddy would be a great fight for TV.

So THIS time George Zimmerman was able to avoid a run-in with a Thug.  Good for him.  Ben Sin, save your clueless opinions - we have zero interest in how dumb you are...

So "this writer" believes Zimmerman doesn't have the right to stop himself from getting the living f%$# beat out of him the first time? Or earn money for the rest of his life? Btw, does this writer know that DMX is like 5'5" and weighs 160 soaking wet? Who's he beating the sh/t out of without a pack of loyal pitbulls behind him, anyway?Zimmerman would basically be fighting Kevin Hart with a bit of rhyming panache. Oh I'm forgetting, DMX's Mom left him as a boy...he must be a terror in the ring.

Whatever...publicity stunt anyway...What was going to happen....DMX would have gotten disqualified in the first round because he would "Loose his mind, up in there, up in there"; because Zimmerman would have made him "go all out, up in there, up in there"...He'd have violated all the rules and the ref would have DQ'd him...Zimmerman wins, gets paid, and America is all pissed off again...Long story short...No a$$ beating on a stupid reality show is going to bring Trayvon Martin back...GAME OVER!!!!

How many convictions does DMX have? How many does Zimmerman have? Thats what I thought. You are living on another planet.

Maybe GZ can PAINT how he sees the fight would have ended-- 

and DMX can go back to hitting the pipe and twerking in the jail house

Actually Mr. Sin - Zimmerman did get the "f***" beat out of him. By a much large, stronger black man. Fortunately Zimmerman had a gun and was able to defend himself. Your violent tirade demonstrates why most of us despise black culture and want to have nothing to do with you. We don't want you in our neighborhoods, our schools or our lives. Is that racist? No, it is common sense and self preservation. If you ever decide to reject your culture of violence, misogyny, bad music, anger and a constant whine of victimization - great. Until then don't demand we embrace you.

I see that it's still Politically Correct to wish for violent harm done to a man found innocent of the crime for which he was charged. Innocent until proven guilty doesn't mean much to the ignorant. Maybe these same people are resentful that their own family members were convicted for their crimes. Who's yo' daddy?  is one of life's biggest mysteries, eh....

Zimmerman would have curb stomped that crackhead DMX.

I think it's a shame to be honest.  I was looking forward to seeing DMX kick the absolute s**t out of this clown.

@Heath_Bell_Experience  I think I agree with SI:   why open the forum for what will doubtless be a barrage of juvenile angst by the 11 year olds who ordinarily post here?

@Edward1 Well according to George Zimmerman a skinny 140 lb 17 yr old beat the S****t out of him.

@DavidEsau  How many people has DMX killed?  How many people has Zimmerman?  That's what I thought.  You are living on another planet.

@WilyCoyoteSuperGenius  Much larger and stronger?  The kid was a scrawny 17 year old.  Zimmerman's a b---- who ain't sh-t without his gun.

@WilyCoyoteSuperGenius  Yes, that is racist. The notion that "black culture" is causing all the problems in neighborhoods is racist. The statement that you don't want them in your neighborhoods, schools and lives is clearly racist. The idea that black culture is the sole owner of violence, misogyny, bad music, anger and a constant whine of victimization is both racist and ignorant.


I won't go on a lengthy response to all of your points, even though each and every one is blatantly wrong. I will say though that if you want to look solely at "harm" to our society, rich, white men cause far more harm to our society than all street level crime combined (in both economic terms and lives lost). Should we also ban rich, white men from our neighborhoods, schools and lives?

@WilyCoyoteSuperGenius  TM was on a search mission for PURPLE ingrediants- proven by toxicology -- so GZ was correct when he said he looked like he was up to no good- unless in YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD- drug dealers and drug makers are folks YOU look up too- 


Oh and many fights are won with a sucker punch- a cowards hit-- this time it looks like TM made a miscalculation--  first punch better be a knock out when you assault someone with a Conceal weapons permit-

@FOOLKILLER  Zim couldn't even beat up a teenager without having to use his gun.  Don't think he would have much chance against DMX when he is forced to fight unarmed.  Now do like your name suggests and off yourself fool.

Yeah, because every old rapper is a badass.

@mystafugee @WilyCoyoteSuperGeniusMartin was 5'11 while Zimmerman is 5'6. 5 inches is a major size difference. If someone that was menacing was threatening that he was going to kill you and was almost beating you to death if you had a gun on you , would you use it in self defense? Especially that the cops always show up late.

@mystafugee @WilyCoyoteSuperGeniusSounds like you bought into the liberal media's bizarrely biased portrayal of thuggy Trayvon.  If you actually did some fact-checking (I know those words are anathema to liberal morons) you'd have found out that most of the slanted news-sites purposely showed only a picture of him from several years ago.  Scrawny?  LOL...nice try.  Either way, it's one way less gangsta-thug running around (by the way, those were Trayvon's desired terms per social media remarks he made).

@Michael50 @WilyCoyoteSuperGeniusSince you are mentioning racist too much. Are you racist as well? The human race pretty much is. i don't like juvenile delinquents turning decent neighborhoods into ghettos that you can't even walk during the day time, fearing flying bullets!

@Michael50 @WilyCoyoteSuperGenius  


Thanks for sparing us that lengthy response refuting violence in black culture, Mikey.  You're right...it is too easy. The detailed soliloquy about harmful whites drove it home for anyone who was still confused, I'm sure. Got a blog we can check in on?

@Michael50 @WilyCoyoteSuperGenius  Do you have any facts to back up your statement about the harm that rich white men do? And go ahead and ban rich white men from your lives...You won't have a job, or welfare.

@WilliamCross  I don't think DMX has to be a badass. I mean, it is George Zimmerman we're talking about here.....

@ArnoldRiveron @mystafugee @WilyCoyoteSuperGenius  So I guess if it was your child you would think Zimmerman was still in the right. And besides thugs come in all races sizes and economic back grounds. I feel instead of pointing the fingers, and promoting hate. You all should put your life on the line for your country and fight the one that don't care about your race but that you are an American and want us all to die.
