George Zimmerman’s opponent in an upcoming celebrity boxing match says he will beat the former neighborhood watchman to a pulp, and much more.
“I am going to beat the living f**k out him,” rapper DMX told TMZ. “I am breaking every rule in boxing to make sure I f**k him right up.”
DMX, whose real name is Earl Simmons, also told TMZ that he would urinate on Zimmerman after defeating him in the ring.
“Once I am done with him, I am going to whip my d**k out and piss on him,” said DMX, who is known for his aggressive rap style.
The hostility towards Zimmerman stems from the shooting death of 17-year-old Travyon Martin nearly two years ago. The shooting and Zimmerman’s subsequent acquittal last July angered many in the black community.
The three-round bout will take place on Mar. 15th somewhere on the West Coast, according to fight promoter Damon Feldman, who was interviewed by Philadelphia Magazine.
Feldman, who was put on probation in 2010 in Pennsylvania for fixing fights, defended the promotion of the fight but apologized at the timing of the announcement. Wednesday would have been Martin’s 19th birthday.
“And, hey, if he gets beat up, I gave the country justice,” Feldman told Philadelphia Magazine.
Part of the proceeds of the fight will go to charity, though it unclear how much of the purse will be distributed.
Part of Zimmerman’s defense during his murder trial was that he was being beaten mercilessly by Martin, leaving him with no choice but to shoot the teenager in self-defense. The owner of a Florida gym where Zimmerman trained testified during the trial that Zimmerman was “just physically soft.”
On a poll on TMZ’s website, 71 percent said they believe DMX will win the bout.
