DMX

Yes, I Agreed to Fight George Zimmerman

But I Wanna Talk Money First

Hold off on placing your wagers ... money has become a big snag in George Zimmerman's boxing match against DMX -- the rapper's rep tells TMZ, contract negotiations are STILL ongoing ... so the fight isn't official ... yet.

The rep Domenick Nati tells us, DMX verbally agreed to "beat Zimmerman's ass" ... IF and when he sees the terms of a contract ... which hasn't happened yet. Once an agreement has been finalized, we're told DMX will officially be down for the bout.

As we reported last night, the boxing promoter behind the fight released a statement, announcing DMX would face George Zimmerman in a 3-round match.

Zimmerman plans to donate any money he makes to charity ... but our guess ... DMX won't be so generous.

Yeah make sure they take a blood "and" urine sample from good ole DMX.
So much for that chump wanting to just "beat Zimmerman's ass".


He's looking for a pay day as he needs every nickle, dime, quarter he can grab. I'd suggest a street corner in Venice

He wants to fight, for Trayvons honor. Yet do not want to move forward. Without discussing money first. No surprise!

Since when is an accused murderer a celebrity? Why are people even entertaining this nonsense. He's getting more attention than he deserves.

Zimmerman is showing what a true nut he is, and how aggressive he is. His behavior since the acquittal suggests he provoked Trayvon into a confrontation. That's the kind of person Zimmerman is.

I don't believe Zimmerman is donating his purse to charity. He's doing it for the money (and the fame). Probably TMZ got this wrong. More likely the language is "a portion of Zimmerman's proceeds" will go to charity. So maybe 1 percent.

If fight happens, DMX by knockout in Round 1.

Zimmerman killed a kid, no remorse, who cares. DMX ought to ignore this putz.

For some one who constantly says he fears for his life he sure loves to keep his face in the media.
