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.

The fight is not off.
He just doesn't know the when, the where or the who.
He will know the why.

Might be a good time to visit Greenland for a few years George.

Why the hell would the Martin family accept any amount of charity money from the man who killed their son?! F*** Zimmerman for what he did to Trayvon & still putting his face out there, f*** the 1st & 2nd promoters for even toying with this concept for entertainment & financial purposes, and one last f*** you to everyone on this site clicking the hate button on people expressing their disgust for Zimmerman & his actions. That speaks volumes about your character, awful...

You know, if Trayon was this bad ass thug that some weak ass fools here try to portray him as, zimmerman would have got holes in his short bus riding head the second he stepped out of the truck to F with him at night, in the rain.

Let Kimbo Slice from Florida knock him out in memory of Trayvon. Zimmerman is broke and needs money... I will vote to cancel any paid fights.

The worst kept secret in the business is that after "promoters fees" were taken out, "all profits" were going to amount to not much at all.

Soooo nobodys gonna bring up the fact that zimmerman couldn't fight off a teenager but now he's in good enough condition to box and not only that but he admitted that boxing was always a hobby of his so the whole time he knew how to fight even before that happened.
