DMX Discusses Potential George Zimmerman Boxing Match

DMX says he's confident he can defeat George Zimmerman in a potential boxing match despite being outweighed by more than 40 pounds.

DMX says that he would win his potential boxing match with George Zimmerman, even though Zimmerman outweighs him by more than 40 pounds.

“It doesn’t matter,” DMX says in an interview with Fox Carolina News. "When you fight with your heart, you’re always gonna win.”

The report says that DMX is 6’ and 160 pounds and that Zimmerman is 5’7” and 204 pounds.

Shannon “The Cannon” Hudson, a world kickboxing champion and founder and CEO of the 9Round kickboxing fitness chain, was interviewed about the potential match by Fox Carolina News. He said there is a key component to evaluating fighters. 

“I don’t know how good DMX or his opponent George can take a punch,” Hudson said. "No matter how good you are, if you get hit and you can’t take it, it’s over.”

Nonetheless, Hudson said who he thought would win a fight between the two.

“I’m going to put my money on DMX ‘cause, you know, he’s wiry,” Hudson said. "He’s obviously in better condition probably just by looking [at him]. But who knows.” 

Even though the match has been discussed, DMX says that he is not officially slated to fight Zimmerman.

“I was challenged,” DMX says. "I still haven’t decided if I was really going to do it. But if I did do it, whatever money that was supposed to go to him would have to go to charity...[I] will gladly be the [expletive] out of him.”

In July 2013, George Zimmerman was found not guilty of second degree murder and manslaughter. He was accused of murdering Trayvon Martin in 2012. Martin was 17. 

The official date, time and location of the boxing match between Zimmerman and his yet-to-be-named opponent are set to be announced February 12. The boxing match is slated to last three rounds. 

Zimmerman has said that he will donate the money he earns for the event to a charity.

    "Yet Floyd beat the brakes off Marquez" Nobody holds Marquez in the same light as Manny though. Manny has been partying too much and just needs motivation. Are you understanding this, kid, or are you just a Floyd bandwagon jumper who watches a few fights and thinks he's the greatest of all time?

    The only reason Zimmerman is doing this is cause he can't get a job. That's why is said Kanye would be perfect. DMX and Game are falling into his trap.

    "either one would be suitable" Floyd has been fighting cream puffs, and the one fighter who is his equal he's afraid to fight.

    I don't think you have to say "accused of murder." We know he killed him. Just say he committed homicide.
    • Anonymous
      Why would you call it a homicide when he wasn't arrested?
    • Anonymous
      because it's still homicide in your mouth

    Zimmerman = Winning! the more hate/ abuse you throw at him the more your culture looks bad. Plus you're getting him paid. Tough is not going to be the way they describe you. Be smart America.
