Bad news, guys.
The celebrity boxing match scheduled for this March, which had George Zimmerman fighting rapper DMX, has been canceled, after media outrage -- which accused the promoter of capitalizing on the death of Trayvon Martin -- forced the plug to be pulled.
The (cough) "brains" behind the operation, Damon Feldman, explained his position on Twitter (via Deadspin):
"I want to thank everyone for the good and bad comments. I've made the choice to cancel the fight with George Zimmermann, more to life than money. I walked away from a million dollar payday with this fight, but to be honest, I'd rather be happy and make people happy, thank you."
A portion of the proceeds was expected to go to charity.
Zimmerman was acquitted in Martin's death last July in a case that has -- and continues -- to divide a nation. His participation prompted offers from prominent figures around the world, including UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones, who likely would have kept his junk in his pants in victory.
