The media first broke the story stating that Feldman had put together the celebrity boxing fight with Zimmerman as a fighter. The first of all celebrities to personally place themself as a fighter was no other than Compton rapper The Game. He announced through his twitter in detail of ways he wanted to physically harm Zimmerman causing owner Damon Feldman to drop the game as a fighter. Feldman shortly stated that DMX would be fighting against George Zimmerman causing all media chaos.

News has speculated that the fight was promoted to “bring in money” and publicity for Damon Feldman. However, after receiving more than enough criticism from civil rights leader Rev. Al Sharpton; Feldman quickly canceled the match stating via twitter “there’s more to life than money”. As for Zimmerman he has yet to comment on the since canceled match.
