It's official ... X gonna give it to George Zimmerman -- TMZ has learned, rapper DMX has just been named Zimmerman's opponent in his upcoming celebrity boxing match.

Celebrity boxing promoter Damon Feldman tells us, DMX was selected out of 15,000 applicants ... all of whom wanted a piece of Zimmerman in the ring after he issued the open challenge to fight anyone willing to take him.

But no one wanted to beat Zimmerman's ass more than DMX.

As we first reported, DMX promised to massacre Zimmerman in the ring if he got the chance. To be exact, he said, "I am going to beat the living f**k out him … I am breaking every rule in boxing to make sure I f**k him right up." He then said he'd literally piss on George's face.

Zimmerman might actually have a chance though -- as we reported, he's been training pretty hard for months ... oh yeah, and he's only 30 years old. DMX is 43.

The boxing match will be 3 rounds.

The date, time, and location of the fight will be announced at a news conference next Wednesday.

DMX would destroy him but why give Zimmerman the exposure? This man killed a 17 year old kid. Trayvon will never grow up to become a man and experience all the things this life had to offer him. Do we live in a society that is so screwed up that we resort to violence and hostility in order to cope with the things that are wrong? No justice for Trayvon and shame on all you Hollywood guys who can take a tragic story and turn it into a disgusting form of entertainment. Fighting fire with fire never works in the end it only makes things worse.

As far as Zimmerman being 30 and DMX being 43, wont matter because DMX stays in shape and Bernard Hopkins proved being older doesnt matter as well as George Foreman years ago did the same. That said, If Im DMX Id be training for Zimmerman because if Zim thought he couldnt take DMX he wouldnt have taken this fight, I dont know whose going to win. I have a feeling Zim is a tough guy to be honest and it smells like hes going to try and prove it against DMX, Im not going for either because I think im to old to be going for someone in a fight,hahahha! That said, I think if Im DMX Im training because the fact Zim took this fight alarms me, he read what DMX said Im sure about pissing in his face and most men take that and say,"bring it" and guys who say bring it think they can back it up!!!!! DMX make sure not to take Zim lightly, hes been working out fighting wise so, hes ready for war!!!!! LGNM

Oh yeah put him up against a known crackhead. That'll do it. Zimmerman's definitely picked the best opponent, for a win. It's a shame that this is even a "thing". DMX you have definitely hit bottom.
