(Newser) – If you were hoping to be the one to potentially knock out George Zimmerman, we've got bad news for you. Celebrity Boxing chief Damon Feldman has chosen Zimmerman's opponent—out of 15,000 applications!—and it's DMX, TMZ reports. The rapper was not shy in describing exactly what he wanted to do to Zimmerman after the boxing match was first announced: "I am going to beat the living f--- out him. ... I am breaking every rule in boxing to make sure I f--- him right up. ... Zimmerman is a piece of s---." The date and location of the three-round match will be announced next Wednesday.

I think Zimm , should fight Stacey Anthony , NO HOLDS BARRED DEATH MATCH !. They both live close to Orlando , not much for expenses and travel .
