George Zimmerman Fight

Cancelled

Promoter Gets Cold Feet

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.

I really believe it should be George Zimmerman vs. O J Simpson. White guy who killed black kid vs black guy who killed white woman. Maybe they'd pound each other into the floor.

Ya right, he just wants to keep his name clean because he knew it would get ugly amd would probably be the end of George Zimmerman on that show.

WTF does that mean? Yeah, more to life than money because he must not have been able to cough up the crack money that DMX wanted, fighting for honor my a$$.

And please, I am "TMZing" here , but "all you people" are right? Who might he be referring to? I have some friends that would have responded to that with "What you sayin boy?" but sounds like he's referring to a group of people because there were plenty of us that easily thought it would be entertaining. I mean have none of us watched OJ or anything having to do with him after he killed 2 people? We would have all watched if Tonya Harding had gotten in the ring with Nancy Kerrigan after she took her out, lol. Okay, done "TMZing"
and by the way tell the promotor that the difference between him and the other parents, is that he was with his kids and appreciated that and spent time with them, he wasn't dumping their kid with an aunt because he's hanging around with gangs, doing drugs and attacking a guy watching me instead of calling 911 to report someone following him.
So, if they had appreciated and spent time with him just think he would still be here because he never would have been in the situation where he couldn't keep staying with his parents and out of trouble with the law. Just sayin..

Hey Harvey, why don't you put up the money and promote the fight. You can get 'Bad Azz Daz' or 'Dirty D' to box Georgie.
