After announcing that DMX would be boxing George Zimmerman on the day that would’ve been Trayvon Martin‘s 19th birthday, fight promoter Damon Feldman cancelled the whole production after getting his ass chewed out on Twitter. Fortunately, George Zimmerman won’t rest until he can commit more acts of violence, and he already has a new fight promoter who promises a no-holds-barred fight club benefiting The Trayvon Martin Foundation because why not tear a hole in the fucking universe? It’s not like anyone’s using it. TMZ reports:
An online streaming service called FilmOn.com says it secured the rights to a Zimmerman fight … after the original promoter, Damon Feldman pulled out because of threats made against his kids.
FilmOn says it’s gonna give the public what it wants — blood — and tells us DMX is out as the challenger because “much bigger names than DMX” want in.
The owner of FilmOn, Alki David, tells TMZ … the fight will no longer be a celebrity boxing match… “this is going to be like Fight Club … a very bloody event.” Alki says the fight will happen March 15 from a secret location … and all profits will go to the Trayvon Martin Foundation.
Seriously, let’s just cut to the chase and skip the whole “profits” (Read: After we pay ourselves a shit-ton of money.) going to charity scheme by taking this thing to its logical conclusion: Giving George Zimmerman a ton of money to let someone fire a bullet at him. Will he survive? Will he die shitting his pants? Or will he immediately pull a gun the second he realizes he started something he can’t finish? Live on Pay Per View!
