|Forum Home > General Discussion > BUT DID U KNOW?--EXCLUSIVE INSIDE INFORMATION REGARDING THE NOW CANCELLED ZIMMERMAN/DMX FIGHT|
Not only has the Celebrity Boxing Match between George Zimmerman & DMX been cancelled but there are no plans to move forward with ANY type of exhibition featuring Zimmerman says a source close to the production team of fight promoter Damon Feldman. THAT'S AS FAR AS FELDMAN'S CAMP. Word has begun to ciculate that FILM ON's Alki David is currently planning a new match for Zimmerman with another opponent. Of course we'll have to wait & see on that but SEIZMIC ENTERTAINMENT has EXCLUSIVE details on the ill-fated & now dismantled Zimmerman/DMX bout that may change your perspective & opinion on this entire matter.
***EXCLUSIVE DETAILS MADE PUBLIC FOR THE FIRST TIME***
The most interesting detail we have learned from a source close to the Feldman camp is that Zimmerman's portion of the proceeds from that fight, as was reported earlier, we're to go to charity. WE'VE JUST LEARNED that charity allegedly was to be the TRAYVON MARTIN FOUNDATION, a term that at first was decided to not be publically disclosed. It is still unclear if this would ever have been made public. A Civil settlement on the hush, maybe? Furthermore, it is said that DMX's portion of the proceeds were primarily to be personal profit with an unclear & undisclosed percentage going to charity.
Another interesting statement made was that the originally considered opponent GAME pushed the negotiation envelope completely off the table by wanting entirely too much for his partcipation, said to be all for personal financial gain (though it is also said GAME was "considering" fighitng for charity in early negotiations but later began to "switch up"). This conflicts with earlier reports & statements made by GAME that Zimmerman/Feldman camp wanted "someone more George's size" & refused his challenge. Perhaps they were talking size of BANK ACCOUNTS & not their boys' TALE OF THE TAPE?
At any rate, as of now, that fight or any other involving any combination of Zimmerman/Feldman/and (INSERT YOUR FAVORITE ANGRY BLACK RAPPER HERE) has been (PERMENANTLY?) cancelled, mainly sighting multiple death threats on Feldman & his family as the chief reason. THE QUESTION WE WOULD LIKE TO OPEN FOR DISCUSSION IS: DOES KNOWING NOW THAT GEORGE ZIMMERMAN'S PROCEEDS WERE TO GO TO THE TRAYVON MARTIN FOUNDATION CHANGE YOUR VIEW OF A MAN CLEARED OF ANY WRONG DOING IN THE SHOOTING DEATH OF AN UNARMED TEEN PARTICIPATING IN A HIGHLY PUBLICIZED CELEBRITY BOXING BOUT? AND WHAT ARE YOUR FEELINGS ON BOTH POTENTIAL OPPONENTS NEGOTIATING PRIMARILY FOR PERSONAL FINANCIAL GAIN IN A FIGHT THAT WAS BLITZED WITH PUBLIC OUTCRY AGAINST ZIMMERMAN & FELDMAN MOST SPECIFICALLY, EVEN AFTER DISCLOSING THAT GEORGE'S MONEY WAS TO GO TO CHARITY?
