This appears to be for real: DMX has signed a contract to box George Zimmerman, who was acquitted of murder charges last year in the death of Florida teen Trayvon Martin. Celebrity boxing promoter Damon Feldman says DMX was chosen out of 15,000 applicants eager to get in a ring with Zimmerman—the rapper tells TMZ he wants to fight on behalf of "every black person who has been done wrong in the system...I am going to beat the living fuck out of him. I am breaking every rule in boxing to make sure I fuck him up right." After knocking Zimmerman out, DMX says he intends to urinate on Zimmerman's face.
The boxing match/publicity stunt/national catharsis is scheduled for March 1st, at a thus-far undisclosed location, a.k.a. THUNDERDOME USA. The fight will last three rounds, not including the post-bout Lightning Pee Round. Zimmerman previously told TMZ he intends to donate his earnings from the fight to charity. (Luckily the N.R.A. accepts donations!)
