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.

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." (Read more George Zimmerman stories.)
