George Zimmerman, the Florida resident who was acquitted in the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin will make his way into the ring for an ultimate celebrity boxing match.
The former neighborhood watchman has agreed to fight on March 1 to help raise money for charity. Zimmerman does not have an opponent as of yet, but according to former boxer, Damon Feldman who planned the event, the 30-year-old is open to boxing anyone, black or white.
“We’re not looking at it as a race thing … We haven’t discussed purple, yellow, white, black” Feldman told TMZ.
As for potential opponents, we do know that The Game wouldn’t mind taking on Zimmerman. “I would not be boxing for me. I’d be boxing for the legacy of Trayvon Martin and for his family,” the rapper, who has a tattoo of Martin on his leg told TMZ.
The Game added, “I would box him to knock him out,” adding, “I would definitely take pleasure in it. It’s legal, and I want to show him you can solve your disputes without a weapon.”
Sound off below: Who would you like to see take on Zimmerman?
