Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, February 05, 2014

The rapper DMX has been selected by George Zimmerman as the opponent in a boxing match. DMX told the gossip site TMZ that he'll break every rule in boxing and "beat the living ----" out of Zimmerman, who was acquitted last year after shooting unarmed teen Trayvon Martin to death in their Sanford, Fl., neighborhood on Feb. 26, 2012.

Multiple felon vs guy that got famous for not going to jail over losing a fight against a kid and shooting him. DMX seems to have an inch or 2 on Zimmerman and longer reach, but Zimmerman's got a lot more weight and is 13 years younger. Zimmerman is dumb and probably has PTSD. DMX is about my weight which puts him way past his fighting prime and has significant drug problems.

This is going to be a terrible boxing match and definitely not worth buying.

Boxing was his hobby, he told Radar Online last month, even prior to the "incident."

He was portrayed by his attorneys at trial as a human butterball who couldn't shadow box because the shadow would win. Now he says he was boxing as a hobby before the incident.

There are longtime hobbyists that still suck at their hobby.

I wonder how the hell you can have a hobby still when you're $2,500,000 debt. MMA training can run > $100 a month. The level of training needed to actually get into a ring is far higher than that and gets much more expensive fast.

"DMX seems to have an inch or 2 on Zimmerman..."

What kind of fight is this?

Generally, a person who boxes as a hobby is not going to be as physically pathetic as Zimmerman was portrayed by his attorneys. They scammed the jury and Angela Corey's incompetence or hubris let it happen.

I hate that this boxing match is going to further the idea that Zimmerman is a celebrity, which he clearly wants to happen.

I am lovin' this. Regardless of whether it boosts Zimmerman's celebrity status, I'm going to watch because I want to see him get punched in the face.

What would be really funny is if DMX starts kicking his ass and he pulls a pistol and shoots him. Nobody can say they were surprised.

I don't see why this mattered anyway. I was always perfectly willing to accept that Zimmy was getting his butt whooped by a 17 year old. To me, that never mattered as I don't believe you should be able to instigate a fight and then shoot the other guy if you're losing.

This is kind of a villain vs. villain thing. I'm not willing to help Zimmerman make any money, but I'll be looking for the YouTube re-runs.

If this doesn't work out for him maybe he can fight Tanya Harding next.

No comment but I will laugh and watch it on Utube! No guns allowed!

Its gonna be funny if Zimmerman wins...

I'd prefer the next story I see about lil' Zimmy is his obituary.

Tanya would kick his ass.

This whole idea, that Georgie says was his, seems more of a slap in the face to people who bought his story that he was being beaten up by a skinny kid.

Like he wants people to know he could have whipped Trayvon, but elected to shoot him instead.

Then the fight will be stopped, he'll be declared the loser, and if the violation is egregious enough, he'll forfeit his appearance bond as well as any chance at a fight purse. Dumb thug.

Errr....it's not a "real" boxing event bro'.

"They should send Floyd Mayweather to the ring and tell George Zimmerman it's DMX," he tweeted. "He won't know the difference."

Now that's funny.

Typical racist thug. Beat up a kid of a different race for entertainment and money just because he can get away with it. DMX sounds like he could be a member of the bloods, crips, Klan or MSNBC.

Thug is the new Ngga. Cowardly white men have found a synonym they can say to each other with a wink and know what the real meaning is. Zimmerman chased a kid down, instigated a confrontation, then shot the kid when he was getting spanked. If it was me in the ring with Zimmerman I would make every effort to turn off his brain.

It'll be on an Indian reservation. No state sanctioning body would allow this.

It's not an Onion article?! OGM - LET THE GAMES COMMENCE!!

That being said, nobody should really feed into his psychosis.

Even Al Sharpton is speaking out against this.
