George Zimmerman Boxing Match: Desparte For Money
Published By: Tara ClemJanuary 31, 2014
Just when you think he has gone away, we can’t be so lucky. Proving he is desperate, George Zimmerman is trying to be considered for a “celebrity” boxing match and is looking for an opponent. The 30 year old who was acquitted for the murder of Trayvon Martin in Florida is now trying to cash in and make money. Celebrity is not a word to be used to describe this idiot, and the George Zimmerman boxing match is about as pathetic as it can get.
Zimmerman is claiming that he has always had the hobby and interest in boxing and is now teaming up with Damon Feldman, a promoter who organizes D-list celebrities for boxing matches. Let’s hope that these two don’t make a penny for the George Zimmerman boxing match, and that everyone is over this overzealous idiot.
George Zimmerman was acquitted in the murder of 17-year old Trayvon Martin in Florida, and has since has had several run-ins with the law, including domestic abuse and alleged assault and theft charges. So to think that anyone would pay for a George Zimmerman boxing matching is repulsive! It gets better, he wants to do a pay per view!
“It was my idea,” Zimmerman, 30, says of the match, “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 Feldman (the boxing promoter) 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.”
While Zimmerman didn’t confirm or deny if he was getting paid to put on the boxing gloves, he did tell Radar that “some: of the proceeds will go to a charity. So under the guides of charity, they are justifying a George Zimmerman boxing match.
“I’d love to tell you [the charity] but unfortunately there’s so much animosity still from people out there, that if I name the charity now they would get bombarded with negativity, so I’d rather not,” he said.
“I’ll leave it up to them to say if they want it to be publicized or not. But I will tell you that it’s an animal rescue.”
“Boxing isn’t new to me. It’s something I had picked up well before the incident and it’s something that I liked, I enjoyed, and I kept up with it and I was able to lose a tremendous amount of weight and get a healthy lifestyle,” he told Radar.
“So it’s not a new hobby, it’s something I have been doing and wanting to pursue to maintain a healthy lifestyle.”
According to Feldman, the George Zimmerman Boxing match is slated for March 1, 2014 match, which will air only online and Pay Per View, is still searching for a Zimmerman opponent.
“I don’t have a preference [on opponent] as long as it goes to charity, doesn’t matter to me. Hopefully someone that won’t hurt me too bad!” Zimmerman said, but after thinking about it a minute told Radar, “If I had my top three I’d say Papa Smurf, the Easter Bunny and maybe the Michelin Man.”
Zimmerman tells Radar he wants a good fight, but will he return to the ring if he loses?
“Obviously if I get my butt kicked around, then no!” he said.
