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.

If George wants to prove he is tough, can he enter like a jumping jack competition for the Guinness Book of World Records? I don't want to see him get hurt or at least not beaten up.

Why is this pathetic man still in the news!!??! You would think after murdering someone and being one of the most hated men in America, that he would want to lay low. Just the sight of him disgusts me!

It's ironic the Martin family doesn't want any money from a fight considering their son Trayvon was heavily into the street fighting culture and died because he thought it was a good idea to "ground and pound" a man just for asking him what he was doing in the neighborhood.

Truth    

If Trayvon Martin had not ATTACKED George Zimmerman. MArtin would be alive today, and probably in trouble for something else. It's just great entertainment to see the alternative versions of reality about Trayvon Martin that whiny blacks come up with.

For anybody that still thinks Zimmerman was guilty this poster illustrates the whole incident in Florida between Trayvon Martin and George Zimmerman.

Trayvon got away and was almost home, and then backtracked and followed Zimmerman to his truck and started beating the crap out of Zimmerman. I love how Trayvon's friend, Rachel Jeantel took the stand and let it slip that he said a racist remark a few seconds before he attacked Zimmerman. If he hadn't been shot, this beating would have been a hate crime on Trayvon. I was appalled by Trayvon's use of foul language and racial slurs.

Note to to future attackers: If you knock a guy down, and notice he has a concealed weapon, don't go grabbing for it yelling "You are gonna die tonight!" as that gives the owner of the gun a license to kill you in self defense.

Why is this ******* being brought up left and right in the news now?? The dude is a f*ckin murderer whether you agree or not about what he did, he still killed somebody and doesn't deserve any of the attention. How do you think Trayvon Martin's family feels???? Does anyone have a heart or morals??? Let this piece of sh*t fade away and stop bringing him up and giving him any opportunities.
