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.

Zimmerman has a lot of weight on DMX, but D is a lot faster. So can get away quickly. I know DMX hits fast, I just hope he hits hard

DMX as a human being is a 1000 worse than Zimmerman.

Take a look at his rap sheet. Also he is a dead beat dad of 12 kids.

What s***!

DMZ just needs to strike a blow directly at the Cyclops eye to kill him. Go get him!

The folks that believe Zimmerman guilty shouldn't support this. It is just giving him more attention. He should fade in to total obscurity. Don't know who DMX is, but he's kind of speaking like a clown also.

There is no way GZ gets out of this easily. I can see a Rodney King(ish) scene happening with him being at the center of every brother in the building.

I would fight Zimmerman and make him feel embarrasing. I will crush all his bones. Let's see if his boxing is good enough for my MMA. -_-

Treyvon deserved what he got, he was a druggie and a criminal, zimmerman is a hero, DMX is a convict and he as well will get his. This has nothing to do with race, i could care less if eaither are black or blue, doesnt matter. Treyvon deserved it and X gone get him some.


Average middle class black man.

GZ will proably pay DMX off to lose the fight, then he will think he's the baddest MF.

Out of 15,000 applicants they choose a 43 year old (13 years older),100 pound druggie who has clearly seen his best days years ago. Could the fix be in already?
