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.

They should leave Zimmerman with DMX and add Kim Kow-rdashian to the fight so DMX can beat both clowns to a pulp!!!

all about the money    

If I was Zimmerman, I would back out now while he still can. Sounds like this is taking on a life of its own now. Gone from a Celebrity Boxing match, with big gloves, short rounds, and contact rules most likely; to a "Fight club" style no holds barred garage fight. The people stepping up to fight Zimmerman have harmful intent because of the whole Trayvon thing and if its underground fight club style fight...I wouldn't be surprised if murder wasn't a possibility.

So much for being innocent until proven guilty and once acquitted innocent in the eyes of the public. In this case he was guilty until proven innocent and he hasn't been proven innocent but "let off" in the eyes of his distractors. People have blood lust for him. For him to go into any kind of physical event he was at risk. To participate in a fight at a "secret" location ala fight club style...with an opponent and public out for blood would be crazy and setting himself up for disaster. Not a fan of the guy...but really anyone should be able to read the writing on this wall....

"negotiating with Feldman for the rights" so Feldman just wants someone else to be the face of this BS, but he still stands to profit, is that what is going on here? The fact that Zimmerman would agree to do this speaks volumes about his distorted mental capacity. Can someone just hit him with a bus already and we can move on.

Trayvon is bigger then zimmerman and he was on top punching his face in, why give him the right to attack a person for asking you questions. I know damn will he wouldnt hit a officer cause he get gun down like the punk he his. Remember people you just cant hit anybody on the street for talking **** to you. That a felony assault.

Both of this are mug shots Zimmermans from a false allegation by a pissed off gf she recanted and admitted this was the case check this out...
.
DMX was tried for rape and sodomy, sexual abuse, and unlawful imprisonment
DMX joined rappers Jay-Z, Method Man, and Redman for Jay-Z's 1999 Hard Knock Life tour, during which he was arrested for charges of a stabbing at a tour stop in Boston, Massachusetts;
DMX and his wife were arrested in 1999 after his uncle (and then manager) was accidentally shot at a hotel in New Jersey, charged with animal cruelty and possession of crack cocaine and weapons.[36] DMX successfully plea-bargained, which reduced his sentence to paying fines, probation, and community service.
When officers of the Fort Lee Police Department executed a search of his home in 1999, DMX promptly surrendered himself on weapons possession charges
DMX was arrested in June 2004, at the John F. Kennedy International Airport, on charges of cocaine possession, criminal impersonation, criminal possession of a weapon, criminal mischief, menacing, and driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, while claiming to be a federal agent and attempting to carjack a vehicle
DMX pled guilty to charges of drug possession, theft, and animal cruelty, at a hearing on December 30, 2008; he was sentenced to ninety days in jail on January 31, 2009

These are a few of the over 20 arrests

Unlawful gun possessions suspected in 2 shootings, animal cruelty......I think I will let George Zimmerman stand my ground in my front yard if that piece of crap thug comes in my yard....idiots used a mug shot for DMX's pic....should have used his kindergarten picture...
