DMX Says He Won't Be Training For Upcoming Fight
The Dawg says it would not be fair to opponent Eric Martinez if he trained before December fight.
DMX called into Washington’s 106.7FM The Fan recently to talk about his upcoming amateur boxing match in December against actor Eric Martinez. The emcee stated that he has no plans to train for the bout claiming, “I’ma just walk in as is. It wouldn’t be fair if I trained.” Confidence is definitely not something the Yonkers rapper lacks and he went on to say that while he may not knock out his opponent in the first round he doesn’t think the fight is “gonna make it to the end.”
DMX added that he has plenty of experience fighting from his younger days but he doesn’t plan on this exhibition fight becoming a new career, “I ain’t tryin to have my face all messed up,” joked the Hip Hop superstar.
On the musical front, DMX plans to release his new album “hopefully first quarter [of 2010].” The controversial rapper said he is “in the studio everyday” and his life is currently about trying to “stay focused on the music, stay focused on my family.”
