It has been announced that a new promoter has taken over the Zimmerman fight. The original promoter Damon Feldman withdrew because of reported death threats against his children. The new promoter, FilmOn promises a better and bloodier fight with no DMX. The owner of FilmOn, Alki Davis stated that “Much bigger names than DMX want in …this is going to be like Fight Club … a very bloody event”. The fight will be held on March 15, 2014 at a non-disclosed location. The rights to the fight however do have to be secured from former promoter Feldman. Feldman withdrew from the fight when someone tweeted “Somebody should kill Damon Feldman’s son and ask him would he put his son’s killer in a celebrity boxing match.”
A news conference will be held today by Feldman to explain more about the situation. During the Zimmerman trial it was reveled that he was training as a Mixed Martial Arts fighter, but was dropped by his trainer for being “too soft”.
