George Zimmerman to Fight DMX, Not Kanye West
George Zimmerman may not get his alleged wish to take on Kanye West in the ring, but he will be going head-to-head with another rapper in the near future.
Zimmerman is set to take part in a celebrity boxing match for pay per view, and his opponent is to be none other than DMX.
The 43-year-old rapper has signed on for the match, which is expected to be for three rounds, according to TMZ.
DMX was reportedly chosen out of approximately 15,000 applicants to fight against Zimerman, who was acquitted of the murder of Trayvon Martin last year.
TMZ previously reported that Zimmerman had his eye on Kanye West for the rapper’s “history of attacking ‘defenseless people.’”
It’s unclear if that is in reference to West recently settling out of court after facing assault charge following an incident in a chiropractic waiting room.
