It’s about to get ugly (up in here, up in here). DMX is stepping in the ring to fight George Zimmerman in a celebrity boxing match.
Celebrity boxing promoter Damon Feldman made the official announcement on Tuesday night.
According to TMZ, the platinum rapper was selected out of 15,000 people who applied to fight the former neighborhood watchman, who was found not guilty in the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.
“I am going to beat the living f**k out him,” said X. “I am breaking every rule in boxing to make sure I f**k him right up.” He also threatened to literally urinate on Zimmerman’s face.
DMX, 43, will face off in a three-round match with the 30-year-old Zimmerman, who has been training for months.
The date, time, and location of the fight will be announced at a news conference next Wednesday.
The celebrity boxing match was reportedly Zimmerman’s idea. He told Radar Online that boxing was his hobby, even prior to the “incident.”
Zimmerman had also said that he wanted to fight Kanye West because the rapper has a history of attacking “defenseless people.”
