George Zimmerman Fight

Cancelled

Promoter Gets Cold Feet

breaking news

0208-george-zimmerman-dmx-tmzGeorge Zimmerman will not be going toe-to-toe with DMX in a celebrity boxing event ... and the promoter says it's because his conscience finally kicked in.

The promoter for the event took to Twitter Saturday afternoon to officially cancel the event ... and said he finally realized there's "more to life then money."


The promoter adds, "Just looked at my son and daughter today wow I'm so lucky those people must be in so much pain ... all you people are right."

Unclear exactly what he meant by "those people" ... but probably a poor choice of words.

He cancelled it because DMX is an unreliable crackhead who probably would not show up. If he did show up he would not follow the rules and it would just turn into an assault.

So now George has announced he is going back to Mexico? I guess he got so many death threats he is running back. Best news ive heard in a long time.

Um, who cares. TMZ- the parasites of stirring crap up. Maybe they should get a conscience like the promoter did and stop dragging up crap to get webhits.

"Those People" leave to TMZ to stir up crap when there is no need to. TMZ the gutter trash, maybe they should get a conscience and close this website.
