Sounds a little like MTV’s show, Celebrity Deathmatch! George Zimmerman was acquitted with the murder of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, and now he’s taking on another dangerous activity — boxing rapper DMX for charity.

Are DMX and George Zimmerman the new Ruff Ryders? Well, not exactly. After receiving over 15,000 applications for people wanting to box George, 30, in a match, the team at Celebrity Boxing decided to go with the 43-year-old rapper!

After news broke that George and DMX wanted to get into the ring, Damon Feldman, Celebrity Boxing owner, put out a statement writing, “the match will be one of the Biggest Celebrity Boxing matches of all time.”

While George is doing this for charity and to keep his name out there, DMX just wants to beat him — bad.

“I am going to beat the living f–k out him,” DMX told TMZ after the announcement. “I am breaking every rule in boxing.,” he said, before add that he’s e then said he’ would literally pee on George’s face if he won.

There is no date and time yet set for the fight, but it Damon is shooting for mid March, and they will go three rounds.

So, does George have a chance? He is in OK shape.

“It was my idea,” George, 30, told RadarOnline. “Prior to the incident I was actually going to the gym for weight loss and doing boxing-type training for weight loss and a mutual friend put me in contact with Damon [Feldman] and provided me with an opportunity and motivation to get back in shape and continue with my weight loss goals and also be able to help a charity out.”

He didn’t confirm if he was getting paid for the gig, but a charity definitely will.

“I’d love to tell you [the charity] but unfortunately there’s so much animosity still from people out there, that if I name the charity now they would get bombarded with negativity, so I’d rather not,” he said. “I’ll leave it up to them to say if they want it to be publicized or not. But I will tell you that it’s an animal rescue.”

Who do you think will win, HollywoodLifers?

So murderers are celebrities now? If Zimmerman had been born a black man and he’d killed a white boy, he’d be on death row. Sick American justice system. What the hell am I saying? Over here in my country a rich man murders his wife and walks free because his business provides jobs to his family members. Disgusting!

He kills a child walking home and its bad enough that a racist jury let him off but now he gets to profit off killing a child. He should be in jail hes a worthless piece of scum.

Only racists support this idiot Zimmerman. It’s not an accident that they picked an African American to fight him. If he would have fought a white guy, he could have lost a lot of supporter, now he gets to keep his racists supporters rooting for him, since he’s fighting a black guy. I find this whole fight and him being called a celebrity despicable. He did kill an unarmed kid. Shameful how he couldn’t fight a kid without pulling his gun, but can fight a grown man.
