The Game Challenges Zimmerman to Boxing Match Promoter Hedges

1/31/2014 10:53 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The Game just came on TMZ Live and formally accepted the challenge to fight George Zimmerman in the ring ... but the promoter hedged, saying although Game is a front-runner, there are more than 4,700 others who want a piece of Zimmerman.

The Game scoffed at promoter Damon Feldman, who said Zimmerman would be a tough opponent because he's been heavy into boxing training.  Game -- who's 6'5" and 240 lbs -- predicts a quick knockout.

Damon says Zimmerman has agreed to fight DMX ... and he says he'll make a decision in a few days for the March 1 fight.
