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.

As I said. One of Trayvon's relatives should participate in the fight and beat the **** out off George Zimmerman.
That's all.

I'm so sick of this race sh!t seriously. Yes he killed that boy and it was wrong and he should be serving life but the fact is both black on white crime and white on black crime happen every day in the U.S but you don't hear about it besides local news because it hasn't gained widespread media attention like this case has. It happens with hate crimes against both black and white people. Plus Zimmerman is clearly not white as you can see, he may seem to think so but we don't claim him as one of ours. Please quit posting hateful comments about white people not everyone is a racist and by putting all white people into a group your actually promoting racism yourself just like you don't want done to you.

It is ridiculous that any money would go to the negroe's foundation. What do they promote, thuggism? Stupid. Give the money to Zimmerman. He was the victim of a government vendetta. George showed great restraint before he shot the kids. But negroes and wiggers are too dumb to realise that.

I think a black man should beet the snot out of Zimmerman for free. And yes i'm white. A DMX ass-whooping might bring some closure. :)

Everyone needs to stop bagging Zimmerman.
He did what any normal human being would do, defend themselves.
The little **** was a thug, enough said.
And for the record, i'm black.

It breaks my heart that sooo many ppl justify a lost life, because he was a 'thug'. fact of the matter is, Trayvon had no weapon and was approached by Zimmerman, whether you are racist, heartless or not those are the facts. YOUR arguments are ridiculous, under this logic if a prostitute gets raped, she deserved it right? Gtfoh, the victim is just that.... the victim. I hope all you racist white ppl are black in your next LIFE and if you're black and feel this way too, Shame on you.... hope you're never in this predicament. Eff Zimmerman, if he would've stayed in his car or better yet drive away this wouldn't even be a conversation....#disgusted

Zimmerman is a piece of ****! He claims he'll fight anyone in a "celebrity" boxing match. But when it comes to the the young kid in the street he draws a weapon on him? GTFOH! It's also disgusting that this fight is going to take place. Makes me sick to my stomach.

You know at first I was against this fight but after reading this it seems as though its just a show of Zimmerman getting the ish beat out of him. If that's the case let him fight.
