George Zimmerman

Fight Back On ... But Without DMX

Claims New Promoter

EXCLUSIVE

0210-george-zimmerman-01
George Zimmerman's celebrity boxing match -- abruptly cancelled when the promoter pulled the plug yesterday -- is back on again ... promising to be a much bloodier event ... according to a promoter who claims to have taken over the fight. 

An online streaming service called FilmOn.com says it secured the rights to a Zimmerman fight ... after the original promoter, Damon Feldman pulled out because of threats made against his kids.

FilmOn says it's gonna give the public what it wants -- blood -- and tells us DMX is out as the challenger because "much bigger names than DMX" want in.

The owner of FilmOn, Alki David, tells TMZ ... the fight will no longer be a celebrity boxing match... "this is going to be like Fight Club ... a very bloody event."  Alki says the fight will happen March 15 from a secret location ... and all profits will go to the Trayvon Martin Foundation.

But TMZ has learned the resurrected fight is not yet a done deal -- we're told FilmOn is still negotiating with Feldman for the rights and nothing has been signed.

Feldman withdrew from the fight yesterday after he said he was bombarded with threats. One Tweet said, "Somebody should kill Damon Feldman's son and ask him would he put his son's killer in a celebrity boxing match."

Feldman says he'll reveal all tomorrow at a news conference.

So it's the same incestuous group of people. GR MEdia Gina Rodriguez obviously behind this, Damon Feldman and Alki David well known clients of hers. You know, the millions of milkshakes guy~ Octomom? That's what she does, makes "celebrities" out of disgusting people like Farrah Abraham and Tan Mom. It's your fault you guys area allowing this.

As much as I'd love to see Zimmerman beaten to a pulp, if I were the Trayvon Martin Foundation I would stay as far away from this as possible and reject any donation this promoter tries to make.

This guy has some sort of death wish or is trying to self destruct. Either way, I wouldn't waste time watching.

Agree with the virdict but not support Zimmerman???....wow.....if u agree with the verdict why not support him??...if you agree with the verdict it means that George is innocent and he shot in self defence...so why can't an innocent man who was almost killed by a black thug have a life??..why do you not support his arranged boxing match.....the poor guy needs money to and seeing that he can't get a job...y can't he fight?...or do what ever to make some money so he can pay his bilks.....anyone who agrees with the verdict should have no probkem with George's boxing match

DMX backed off. Spike (Black Supremacist) Lee should fight in his place. He was the biggest mouth crying racism and even tweeted Zimmernan's wrong address in order for the world to get revenge.

What's that,a foundation to buy burglary tools and teef for up and coming thugs?

Zimmerman had better be VERY careful about what he signs because the black racists are looking for an excuse to legally kill him. Chances are they are going to try to set him up with a pro fighter,and then the crowd will swarm him and kill him after the fight ends.

The Trayvon Martin Foundation doesn't want any money from this retarded *******. They want George Zimmerman's fat ass in prison where he belongs. This is sick and George Zimmerman is proving himself to be a cruel, vicious thug who gets off on shooting unarmed teenagers in the back. I hope the jury that acquitted Zimmerman of all charges are happy that this waste of space is free to do all this stupid sh!t while an innocent teen, who was doing nothing wrong, is gunned down by a coward. George Zimmerman didn't have the balls to face Trayvon and shot him in the back. That's not self defense, that's a cowardly punk move. George Zimmerman, please crawl into a cave and die.

Okay how much legality is this fool holding on to? Does he have TMZ by the balls or something? Who fuels this maniac as if he were a celebrity. Prayers to T.M.'s family. They just plain do not deserve this.
