(Newser) – After a planned celebrity boxing match involving George Zimmerman caused controversy—including a White House petition against it, Philadelphia Magazine notes—the match has been canceled, according to its promoter. "I'm sorry for anyone I hurt with this but this was a very big opportunity thank you," Damon Feldman tweeted. "There's more to life then (sic) money." He added, per TMZ: "Just looked at my son and daughter today wow I'm so lucky those people must be in so much pain … All you people are right."
