Zimmerman Agrees to Celebrity Boxing Match
It looks like George Zimmerman has found yet another business venture (we guess selling so-called “art” on eBay wasn’t enough). The former neighborhood watch volunteer confirmed on Twitter that he has agreed to a celebrity boxing match. [Insert side-eye here]
In an exclusive interview with Radar Online, Zimmerman, who was acquitted of all charges in the murder of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, said boxing was a hobby he’d been into “prior to the incident” (oh, is that what we’re calling it these days?!):
“Prior to the incident I was actually going to the gym for weight loss and doing boxing-type training for weight loss and a mutual friend put me in contact with Damon and provided me with an opportunity and motivation to get back in shape and continue with my weight loss goals and also be able to help a charity out.”
The match is set to take place on March 1, 2014 and will air online and on Pay Per View. So far, there is no opponent although The Game, who has a tattoo of Trayvon on his leg, has apparently stepped up to the challenge, according to TMZ.
