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.

"Those people" who are right are the ones that created and signed a change.org petition in an attempt to get the fight cancelled so as not to raise this pseudo-celebritism of Zimmerman anymore while lining his pockets as well as others, at the further expense of his victims. Looks like the petition worked.

Zimmer is mixed Hispanic and white please grow up and stop making it a race issue..no one race is exempt from stupidity and violence and arguing over meaningless things will only fill it with more of the same...

Evidently George is a hell of a fighter and can't get a match. Spike Lee can't get a "celebrity" boxing match together?
