George Zimmerman Boxing

Trayvon's Family Refuses Donation

FIGHT IS OFF AGAIN

EXCLUSIVE

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.

I'd have more respect for him.

Some respect for him at least.

If he admitted he's mentally ill/off the charts.

A danger not just to Teens in the Hood.

Pregnant wives enabling him behind money.

But everyone.

If you believe it was self defense then you do not see it as murder. I happen to believe a 17 year old young man was murdered because a neighborhood watch person escalated a confrontation after he was told by the police dispatcher NOT to make contact with the person. I believe the victim was defending himself from an aggressive patrol person and was subsequently murdered for defending himself. If it was your child or someone you knew and cared about, you would have more empathy and want justice.George Zimmerman, the man who killed the unarmed teenager two years ago this month.. was made out to be a weakling during his second-degree murder trial. Remember how his former boxing coach testified that he “never got off shadow boxing, hitting the heavy bag and learning how to punch.” Zimmerman now claims boxing as a serious avocation long before what he called “the incident.” Zimmerman should never have gotten out of his vehicle and chased the poor kid down. All Trayvon did was defend himself against a crazed, drugged, drunk man, women abuser, animal abuser, road rage, bully,pulling gun on people like a ups man. whom he did not know and who had no business accosting him.There's something wrong with a society where a black kid can't walk a few blocks to the store for snacks without ending up dead.

Zimmerman needs to find a rock to live under so the family has some peace... They are not going to take his blood money.

I wish people would just leave this loser alone and let it play out. He'll never get a job, he's crazy, and he'll end up the same way Trayvon Martin did...doa by a bullet.

Stop! Just stop already. It's bad enough a teenager died and it turned into a frickin racial circus. Are we really going to beat this horse into the ground? TMZ, I'm really getting sick of you bastards throwing gas on fires that should be put out. To hell with Zimmerman and to hell with you instigators.

I want to see someone jump GZ and beat the crap out of him on the street... After they remove his gun and toss is far from him. He won't fight fair otherwise. Do it on the street and post it online so we can all watch him cry like a baby when he gets hit and can't shoot his way out of it.

I hope some black wannabe rapper tries to attack me. I'd be more than happy to put a piece of lead in your head, all in self defence of course.

Why is that murderer being talked about on here. Hes no celebrity. Hes just a killer who got off because a racist jury couldnt get past the fact that trayvon was black.
