George Zimmerman Will Be Participating in a Celebrity Boxing Match
By Josh Feldman
George Zimmerman is back the news, and this time, it’s not for his brushes with the law or his artwork. No, Zimmerman will be participating in a celebrity boxing match for charity, TMZ first reported yesterday. Zimmerman’s participation was confirmed to ABC Action News, for a match that will take place on March 1st. Zimmerman will donate all his earnings from the match to charity.
The promoter of the event reportedly told TMZ, “We’re not looking at it as a race thing … We haven’t discussed purple, yellow, white, black.”
All this just begs the question: who should Zimmerman’s opponent be? Well, one person who wants a shot at taking a shot at Zimmerman is rapper The Game, who told TMZ he would “beat the f*ck out of” Zimmerman if given the chance, because, as he said, “I would not be boxing for me. I’d be boxing for the legacy of Trayvon Martin and for his family.”
