Promoter cancels controversial Zimmerman vs. DMX celebrity boxing match


Hold the presses! After much consideration (and accusations that the fight was going to be fixed) boxing promoter Damon Feldman has had a change of heart and cancelled the boxing match between George Zimmerman and rapper DMX, which was to take place in March of this year. Yesterday evening he tweeted:

“All you people are right”

“I want to thank everyone for the good n bad comments I’ve made the choice to cancel the fight w George Zimmermann more to life then money.”

“Done with George Zimmerman if you had a major payday sitting in front of you , I know no one else would walk away like I did ***Next!!”

“I made the right decision I could of made big $$$ but I would rather be happy”

According to Deadspin, he also posted the below tweets but it appears that he deleted them…

“The George Zimmerman fight is canceled I’m sorry for anyone I hurt with this but this was a very big opportunity thank you”

“It was my decision to cancel the george zimmerman fight it was worth a lot of money to me but people’s feelings meant more to me I walked away from av [sic] million dollar payday with this fight but to be honest I’d rather be happy and make people happy thank you”

Now, we can all move on from this ill-conceived spectacle. – ruthie hawkins/@ruubabie
