The much talked about George Zimmerman vs DMX celebrity boxing match has been cancelled for ‘life’ reasons.
The boxing promoter Damon Feldman made the announcement on Twitter Saturday, citing ‘more to life then (sic) money’ as the reason for the decision.
‘The George Zimmerman fight is canceled I’m sorry for anyone I hurt with this but this was a very big opportunity thank you,’ he tweeted. ‘I want to thank everyone for the good n bad comments I’ve made the choice to cancel the fight w George Zimmermann more to life then money.’
‘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,’ he continued. ‘I walked away from av million dollar payday with this fight but to be honest I’d rather be happy and make people happy thank you.’
He later added, ‘Just looked at my son and daughter today wow I’m so lucky those people must be in so much pain … all you people are right.’
Translation: His conscience stopped him from going ahead with the fight.
As ENTmania! reported, more than 15,000 people applied to fight Zimmerman after the latter brought himself out to fight anyone for charity.
DMX – who promised to beat up the acquitted Trayvon Martin killer and urinate in his face – was announced as his opponent, but an official agreement was never signed.
