George Zimmerman agrees to Celebrity Boxing, The Game steps up


George Zimmerman, the man who was in the spotlight for a very long time after fatally shooting teenager Trayvon Martin, is getting his name back in the spotlight once again. But it’s not for committing any type of crime, but for possibly biting off more than he can chew.

Zimmerman Tweeted a link yesterday confirming that he’s agreed to participate in a Celebrity Boxing event. Something that puts both male and female celebrities together to duke it out for a good cause. This one on the other hand, is very personal to hip hop artist, The Game.

When it was announced that Zimmerman is willing to fight anybody, “no matter the race”, one of the first individuals to step up was the rapper out of Los Angeles, California. Game spoke to TMZ about it and told them:

“I will beat the f**ck out of him. I would not be boxing for me. I’d be boxing for the legacy of Trayvon Martin and his family.” via TMZ

Game has a tattoo of Trayvon Martin on his leg. This match up would be as huge as Rodney King being able to fight a Cop a couple of years ago. The fight hasn’t been set up yet, but I’m sure The Game will be the challenger chosen for George Zimmerman.

That match up being on the card alone will raise a whole lot of money.
