There are many out there who would love the opportunity to take a swing at George Zimmerman, the man who was found not guilty for the murder of teen Trayvon Martin. One of those people is Compton rapper The Game, who has challenged Zimmerman to a celebrity boxing match.
“I will beat the f**k out of him,” The Game said. “I would not be boxing for me. I’d be boxing for the legacy of Trayvon Martin and for his family,” said The Game to TMZ. “I would box him to knock him out…I would definitely take pleasure in it. It’s legal, and I want to show him you can solve your disputes without a weapon.”
George Zimmerman will participate in a “celebrity” boxing match that will be aired online and on Pay-Per-View on March 1, 2014. “It was my idea,” Zimmerman said in an interview with Radar Online.
“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 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.”
According to the interview with Radar Online, Zimmerman has experience in the boxing ring. “Boxing isn’t new to me. It’s something I had picked up well before the incident and it’s something that I liked, I enjoyed, and I kept up with it and I was able to lose a tremendous amount of weight and get a healthy lifestyle.”
What do you think of The Game issuing a challenge to box George Zimmerman? Would you pay to watch that?
