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.

This is Just Wrong on so many Fronts.

How could Fat Boy Expect Trays Family to be used as a Tool to Promote his so-called Celebrity Boxing ambitions. Granted they would get some money out of this, but the way Zim is going about it is all wrong.

If Zim was truly remorseful he would hide under a rock, make some money (Somehow) and send anonymous Donations To Trays Foundation and don't take credit for the money right away.

Then many years from now he could write about why he wanted to donate money to Trays Family over the years, and why he sent the money anonymously.

For Zimmerman to call himself a "Celebrity Boxer" while Facing the Lenses of the Cameras takes on the quality of a Vindicated Confessional as if he has become a Star by Virtue of His Own Invention.

George, if your reading this thread as I'm sure you are being such a narcissist, your no Celeb, and the best thing for you to do is disappear.
You killed Tray in self defense but it does not make you a Celeb of any kind. The rumors of you having a Celeb Boxing match for Charity is only hurting the Martin Family.
You need to think things out from now on,
it's obvious your not that bright making decisions like this.

Just another desperate attempt to keep his name in the news.. What is next for him.. A spread in playgirl? A major movie career? As best selling novel about how he brutally murdered without care a young man who was in the prime of his youth?

Have someone BIG and STRONG. With fighting ability to fight him, just so everyone knows he will get what deserves.

Stopping the fight for any reason other than having a heart, does not diminish the fact that Zimmerman is being glorified.

Why are people trying to make zimmerman a celebrity? He killed a child and then pulled a gun on his ex-wife and girlfriend, and now people are trying to portray him as a good guy? Eventually he'll get his, just like OJ!
