George Zimmerman turns down Jon Jones bout, opts to fight DMX in celebrity boxing match

And as an added stipulation, according to DMX, the winner gets to empty their bowels inside the ring.

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) light heavyweight kingpin Jon Jones has been working on his boxing. While it may not be good enough to keep him from getting "killed" in the "sweet science," it's probably good enough to notch a win over George Zimmerman.

Yes, the same George Zimmerman who was recently acquitted in the death of Trayvon Martin.

Jones offered to be Zimmerman's opponent for an upcoming "celebrity" boxing match, if the promoters were willing to change the date. "Bones" is currently in training camp to prepare for his Glover Teixeira fight at UFC 172 on April 26 in Baltimore.

Maybe next time.

In his place will be longtime rapper and part-time actor DMX, according to TMZ, who is not only willing to participate in the charity boxing event, but also hoping to avenge "every black person who has been done wrong in the system," by any means necessary.

His words:

"I am going to beat the living fuck out him ... I am breaking every rule in boxing to make sure I fuck him right up. Once I am done with him, I am going to whip my dick out and piss on him ... right in his muthafuckin face. Zimmerman is a piece of shit and that's what he needs to drink."


DMX has dabbled in combat sports once before, scheduling a celebrity mixed martial arts (MMA) fight against some C-list scrub in Alabama, but got cold feet at the last minute and bailed on the event altogether, where he was eventually replaced by Coolio.

Yes, really.
