The Game, DMX put names forward for George Zimmerman fight


Rappers The Game and DMX have put their names forward to fight America's most infamous Neighborhood Watch volunteer, George Zimmerman, in a celebrity boxing match in March.

Zimmerman, who was last year acquitted of murdering unarmed teenager Trayvon Martin during a street altercation in Florida, recently agreed to take part in a celebrity fight night.

"It was my idea," Zimmerman tells RadarOnline. "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."

And now The Game, who has an image of Martin tattooed on his leg, tells TMZ he would definitely jump into the ring with Zimmerman: "I will beat the f--- out of him ... I would not be boxing for me. I'd be boxing for the legacy of Trayvon Martin and for his family."

"I would box him to knock him out," The Game continues. "I would definitely take pleasure in it. It's legal, and I want to show him you can solve your disputes without a weapon."

DMX also talked to TMZ, saying that he hopes to step into the ring with Zimmerman to fight for "every black person who has been done wrong in the (legal) system."

However, the embattled rapper, who has spent recent years in and out of jail, warns he would have no regard for rules if he was allowed to take part, and he has even threatened to urinate on his opponent if he wins.

An opponent for the fight has yet to be confirmed. But Zimmerman seems to be open to just about anyone: "I don't have a preference [on opponent] as long as it goes to charity, doesn't matter to me. Hopefully someone that won't hurt me too bad!"
