First of all....


What makes this fool a 'celebrity'!

--
(CNN) -- Let's get ready to ... mumble.

As in, what now, George Zimmerman?

Seems like the former neighborhood watchman has found yet another way to remain in the public limelight.

This time, he'll be stepping into a boxing ring to fight rapper DMX.

Zimmerman said the celebrity boxing match was his idea. Boxing was his hobby, he told Radar Online last month, even prior to the "incident."

The incident, of course, is the February 2012 encounter in which he shot dead an unarmed Trayvon Martin, 17. He stood trial for murder, but was acquitted.

"Prior to the incident, I was actually going to the gym for weight loss and doing boxing-type training for weight loss," he told Radar.

"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."

"They should send Floyd Mayweather to the ring and tell George Zimmerman it's DMX," he tweeted. "He won't know the difference."


Now that, I'd pay BIG BUCKS to see! :devil:

But at the end of the day (when sanity rules) I have to agree with Sharpton:

Quote:

concerned "about the precedent that it sets."

"We must be very careful not to glorify or in any way sidestep the implications of making someone whose only claim to fame was killing an unarmed young man named Trayvon Martin into a cultural celebrity or hero," Sharpton said.



And might I add - "killing an unarmed young man named Trayvon Martin.... and getting away with it!" :po:

So, they cancelled that (so-called) 'fight'.

Still I say good, because if zimmerman really wanted to fight, the right man would meet him in any dark alley. Such a fight would be better served there.

And no I won't even say 'me', because I guarantee you that (even at my age,) I'm strong enough that he would take one look.....turn around and walk away. So I know he wouldn't want any parts of Mayweather.

That would probably prove smart.
