George Zimmerman Boxing

Trayvon's Family Refuses Donation

FIGHT IS OFF AGAIN

treyvon_zimmerman_fight
George Zimmerman will not be bare-knuckle brawling ... TMZ has learned the celebrity boxing match has been canceled again after Trayvon Martin's family refused to accept any money from the fight's promoter.

As we reported ... FilmOn.com CEO Alki David wanted Zimmerman to fight multiple high profile opponents in a fight-club style match ... and said he would donate all profits to the foundation created by Trayvon Martin's family.

But late today the foundation told TMZ it would NOT take any money from the fight, saying it "stands boldly against any act of violence" and would reject David's donations.

When we called David for comment he decided to pull the plug altogether, saying ... "I respect the wishes of the family and in light of this we are canceling the event."

The original bout -- planned with DMX -- was axed when the first promoter got 2nd thoughts ... and death threats.

Good. No need to exploit his death and also George Zimmerman should not be made into a celebrity.

People are treating this cold-blood MURDERER like some kind of effing celebrity. In the end, he's a MURDERER, period. I don't blame the family one bit for refusing to take blood money profited from the man who took the life of their innocent child. Good for them! This murderer keeps making money from selling his artwork, from donations, etc. It's beyond disgusting and disgraceful. An innocent child was murdered in cold blood. Trayvon had no weapons. WTF are the people who support this murderer thinking!?!?!?

Every time I look into Trayvon's eyes, I thank God that Mr. Zimmerman removed that evil nlgger from our planet before he robbed, hurt, or killed any innocent people.

The martin family doesn't accept donations, they prefer to steal other peoples' money. Just like their thȗg gαnstα son...

Trayvon's mother and father are too be applauded with the decision they made, what they are going thru with this azz hole Zimmerman is beyond words, I hope they get a little peace from this and the people who can afford it will donate in honour too his foundation. Zimmerman, go for a walk in the rain and just let TMZ know ahead of time where you will be and someone will give you what you desire with a fight.

So is this the same promoter who, after realizing that nothing was more important than his kids- canceled the fight? What a joke!

Why can't some thugs just beat the crap out of Zimmerman? They're going to end up in jail, anyway. Why not be the heros of their cellblock?
