But says that the fight might give the country “justice.”

UPDATE: Under pressure from the growing opposition to the George Zimmerman/DMX boxing match, fight promoter Damon Feldman has indicated that Zimmerman will not appear at the Philadelphia press conference next week.

ORIGINAL:


Trayvon Martin would have been 19 on Wednesday, had he not been shot and killed by George Zimmerman in Florida. And so when news spread on Wednesday that Philadelphia-based Celebrity Boxing promoter Damon Feldman (below) had announced a George Zimmerman vs. DMX bout, well, a lot of people started crying foul. (There's also a White House petition to stop the fight). I got Feldman on the phone to talk about it.

AP-damon-feldman-photo-Matt-Rourke-400When and where is the George Zimmerman/DMX fight?
It's going to be on March 15th. I can't say where until the press conference in Philadelphia next week. It's most likely going to be on the West Coast and will only be viewable on pay-per-view via the Internet.

You announced this today, on Trayvon Martin's birthday.
Actually, I announced it last night on TMZ.

OK, so you announced it on the eve of Trayvon Martin's birthday, and people are hearing about it today. And a lot of them are upset.
You know what, man, I didn't even look. You know I'm a good-hearted guy. I didn't know when his birthday was. I just wanted to get the news out there.

Do you think an apology is in order?
It's a good question. I had no idea that it was Trayvon Martin's birthday. The event has nothing to do with that. I don't want this fight to be about that. I would never do something like that. I'm not like that. And, I, well, I don't think anybody knows my birthday. I didn't know it was Trayvon's birthday, just like no one knows my birthday. If I had known, I would have waited.

Really? You would have waited had you known?
Yes. Absolutely.

So do you want to issue an apology?
Yes, but I need it to go national. I'm sorry if I hurt anybody's feelings. If I would have known… I just had no clue.

OK, but why align yourself with Zimmerman at all?
The thing is, it was thrown into my hands, and I basically just take it as it comes. I wasn't looking basically for anything other than putting Celebrity Boxing back out there. My events are always surrounded by controversy. That's what Celebrity Boxing is about. I'm in business. This is all just business for me. I don't know Zimmerman other than talking to him seven times.

What's he like?
I don't really know the man.

But you've spoken to him 7 times. You must have some sense of him.
He's supposed to be coming to Philly next week for the press conference. He's just "hello" and "goodbye." He seems like a real calm guy. He was alright to me. I don't like him, and I don't hate him. And hey, if he gets beat up, I gave the country justice.

    What a dirt bag scum Feldman is. Won’t be buying nor watching this crap. Rot in hell the same place Zippy will.

    • Evo Shift

      Zimmerman just might join Trayvon in hell with this ridiculous attention getting behavior. ZImmerman needs to just go away.

      • BrandonKay

        Trayvon’s not in hell..

        • Evo Shift

          Oh, ya? You must be a Trayvon supporter. Let me know how Trayvon is doing when you join him in hell with Sharpton, Jackson, and the rest of the racists who support thugz and gangstaz.

          • BrandonKay

            Four mugshots for a killer, all for violence and lying to a judge? Stop embarrassing yourself, man.. lolol

          • dan

            you are the one posting from hell. how is your buddy hitler? make room for manson cause he is yopur roommate. need a fan?96

          • Evo Shift

            All of us have relatives that died defeating Hitler. Fascism is evil. But, would you rather live in Nazi Germany before WWII or Liberia???? How about West Philadelphia ????

    • Evo Shift

      Well, we all got our wish. The fight is cancelled. Hopefully, Zimmerman will disappear into obscurity and we’ll never hear about him again. The one thing that can be said about this whole case is that it brings out people’s true color.

      • BrandonKay

        It sure does bring out the true colors of a psychopath who’s been arrested FOUR times for violence thinks he’s a celebrity for getting arrested over and over finally killing a kid. How sad…………………….

  • Tony

    Boycotting this fight!!!!! IT’S DISTESPECTFUL!!!!!

    • AndrewInterrupted

      Feldman: “Oy…!! Anything that makes money is not disrespectful..!!”

  • Jane
    • Matt

      So bc u don’t wanna support this dirtbag, (and neither do I), you think his right to promote a fight should be taken away by the President? While I think that Feldman is a dirtbag, and I don’t think Zimmerman should be looked at like a celeb, if we ban something just bc we don’t like it (banning speech or expression we disagree with ) we are going down a very slippery slope as a country. The boxing match is in poor taste, but banning it is completely UnAmerican

      • Evo Shift

        Well said. I don’t want to censor the black nazis screaming on the corners in Philly, I just want them prosecuted to the fullest extent if they break the law. THey don’t upset me, I just laugh in their faces along with the rest of the REAL racists in this country.

      • momatad

        The White House has more to worry about than this sh*t-stain on society and a reckless poptart (Bieber). Let the chips fall where they may, Hopefully this will be hyped to the nines and enough people will be sickened by it Feldman and his ‘boxers’ will both be left holding the bag when no one except a few Zimmer-boy fanboys want to pay to see him get his arse handed to him on a plate.

      • jonbon megladon

        right awn

    • Evo Shift

      Are you a communist? This is AMERICA. You can’t STOP anyone from exercising their rights as an American. Censors, Liberal, Hypocrites, and the TRUE Racists all make me sick.

      • BrandonKay

        What kind of Z groupie are you .. damn CULT member.. loololol

        • Evo Shift

          Frankly, I think Zimmerman sounds like a complete douche. If you hate him, don’t worry because I think he is going to self destruct. But, the fact is, you and I both have no clue what he’s really like. But, we do have the EVIDENCE that proves Trayvon caused his own death. So, although ZImmerman seems like a douche, he is not a murder. Unlike you, I’m not a uneducated racist. Case in point, if Z was black and Trayvon was white, the verdict should have been the same.

          • BrandonKay

            No “we” don’t only know what Zippy’s like now, the entire world does.

            I’m not a racist, not racist bone in my body.. You’re NOW embarrassing yourself. lolol

          • Evo Shift

            We don’t know anything until we actually get to know the guy personally. But, based on the unsubstantiated rumors and gossip, I wouldn’t even want to.

          • BrandonKay

            What freaking planet or rock do you live on or under? lolol

          • Evo Shift

            Education and Honesty makes me an embarrassment or has me living under a rock? The uneducated and racist people in this country have doomed out future. Very sad.

          • BrandonKay

            There’s something seriously wrong with you, dude. wow! lol

            If I had a nickle for every time you’ve use the word, “racist” on this thread, when NO ONE other than YOU have brought race into their comments, I could buy a bottle of Jack.. lol

          • Evo Shift

            Yet, you keep stalking all my posts and responding to them.
            I guess you’re becoming my stalker and it’s time for me to ignore you. Ignorance is Bliss. Enjoy.

          • BrandonKay

            I’m not “stalking” anything, dude, you can’t stop embarrassing yourself by continuing to post to me after I school you..

            Make it simple for yourself.. move on.. lol

        you are the fascist damn u…….

      • Matt

        The religious right is just as guilty as trying to censor people as the liberals are.

        • Evo Shift

          Agreed. It’s funny all the intelligent posts are coming from the white guys. All true religions teach tolerance and respect and leave judgement for God. All things that Sharpton, Jackson, and Jihadists don’t understand and why they will all burn in hell.

  • MrUniteUs1

    Let me guess Feldman is Jewish.

    • Evo Shift

      Blacks being racist against Jews, while constantly using “racism” as a crutch and a meal ticket. Typical.

      • MrUniteUs1

        When did the word Jewish become racist? Why are you making a racist comment about all Blacks, some of who are Jewish, because something I an individual, wrote. Is that normal behavior for you?
        .

      • Michael Creamer

        Evo shift. If you don’t mind me asking what is your ethnicity?

        • Evo Shift

          I am an American. This is the ONLY ethnicity that should be recognized in this country. When we all start being AMERICANS instead of African Americans, etc, then this country will be a much better place.

          • Michael Creamer

            That would be great. Unfortunately, That is not the case. Witch is why this case,the evidence,the verdict,and the events following are questionable. If the justice system did not fail millions of people in recent history, Your previous post about accepting Zimmer being found not guilty by a group of his peers would have been agreeable. You seem to be educated Why do you respond in such a negative way? If you would like to see this county ethnically undivided, why would comment or respond to comments in racially insensitive manner?

          • Michael Creamer

            If I may give my opinion. Based on the comments and responses from you in this post, I belive that most americans would consider you an African American.

          • Evo Shift

            Initially, I though Z was guilty and should get life. Then, all the evidence came out. Although a tragedy, the EVIDENCE proves Trayvon caused his own death. It’s the exploitation by Sharpton/Jackson and the blind support of blacks for EVERY black that destroys race relations. We are ALL biased. EVERY one of us. But, we should ALL try to be FAIR and JUST with each other. If anything, the Trayvon case shows how racist blacks really are. What I am saying now is REAL TALK and not the BS lies people tell each other to be polite. Sure, I’m biased. We all are. But, if you are a good AMERICAN and you treat others with respect and the way you want to be treated, most people see past color real quick. I do., because I want you to treat me the way I treat you.

  • Lynn

    How does zimmerman get celebrity status. He is a killer who got off. But had it been your family member you would feel differently. I don’t know you or your birthday but I do know that I will NEVER support ANYTHING you are attached to. #foulontheplay

    • Evo Shift

      No. He is not a killer; as determined by a jury of his peers. But, don’t let facts get in the way of your stupidity.

      • Marcus

        So he didn’t kill anybody? Really now?

        • Evo Shift

          It’s called self defense. Hopefully, MANY people of ALL races will start carrying LEGAL weapons and start eliminating all the violent criminals like Trayvon Martin from our society. If an animal physically attacks a human being, the animal should be put down. Period.

          • BrandonKay

            Dude, Trayvon never had a single arrest yet his killer has had FOUR. Now the killer was caught STEALING an Associate Press image, trying to con people into thinking it was “his art”.

            You’re a complete dope. lol

          • Evo Shift

            Trayvon’s history of violence and crime has no bearing on the evidence that proves he caused his own death. Regardless, Martin did, in fact, have a history of violence and crime. Zimmerman seems to be a douche so the Z haters will probably see get to see him self destruct.

          • BrandonKay

            “Trayvons history of violence”?? You mean the homeless video that Mark O’Mara, Zippy’s EX attorney had to publicly apologize for misrepresenting Trayvon in a so called “fight video” where HE or his friends were NOT fighting?!!

            Here’s your hero.. and damn is he your hero since your dedication to a violent POS is never ending on this thread!

            The psycho has FOUR arrests and FOUR mugshots because of the psycho’s inability to control his criminal behavior, his rage and anger. Zippy molested his cousin for ten years, assaulted a cop, resisted his arrest, battered his ex fiance and kicked her dog,. He also emotionally beat down and battered and manipulated his soon to be ex-wife, Shellie. He destroyed her IPad by bending it in half and cut it open with a knife, destroying the video contents intentionally. This was all done with a threatening stance and a threatening and angry verbal altercation, all caught on surveillance footage. Zippy also assaulted Shellie’s father and now threatened his “new” girlfriend with a shotgun and also destroyed her property. The psycho even barricaded himself INSIDE her home when she asked him to get the heII out. When Zippy’s girlfriend call the cops, he refused to talk to them, open the door or let them in. The cops had to break in the barricaded home and remove the crap Zippy used to barricade himself. Zippy also manipulated his wife to lie directly to the court claiming indigence while hiding 135K, extorting donated defense funds into several different bank accounts. He even lied to the court about a second passport that was stashed in a safety deposit box! And YOU think the psycho is not a manipulating LIAR, a thief, a confrontational sociopath and an abusive violent moron?!?!?!? The whack job can’t even obey the damn speed limit!

            Are you that stupidly ignorant to actually think Zippy is a lifelong “victim of circumstance”? You are smoking crack if you do. Your pea brain can’t wrap itself around what most rational thinking human beings in this entire country has witnessed while Zippy’s shows his true-self exposed pre and post trial?! You are definitely smoking crack if you still actually believe that Zippy just said, “no, I don’t have a problem” when Trayvon asked Zippy why he was relentlessly following him in his truck and then on foot when Trayvon ran! If so, AGAIN, you’re smoking crack if you don’t know by now that Zimmerman did, in fact, threatened Trayvon with his gun and tried to detain him and the very reason why Trayvon had no choice but to defend himself from that psycho and his, “THE” loaded gun!

            Stop enabling a psycho to proceed with his never ending criminal behavior, his rage, anger, threats and the destruction of every life he comes in contact with. Wake the F up before someone else’s life is destroyed by George Zimmerman or God forbid, DEAD.

          • Evo Shift

            Wow. 2 page diatribe over Zimmerman. SO, you must stalk Z in addition to me now. LOL What does ANY off your rambling have to do with the fact that EVIDENCE proved Trayvon caused his own death? If you are right about Zimmerman, he will self destruct soon enough and you can feel better. I posted from the beginning that I think Zimmerman is a DOUCHE, but not a killer. Regardless, I actually hope ZImmerman beats the shit out of the CONVICTED FELON by the name of DMX just to piss off the racists like you. If not, Zimmerman gets his ass whooped for being a douche. Win-Win for me.

          • BrandonKay

            I educate myself as you claim YOU DO, and now I’m Zippy’s “stalker”?

            I’m don’t with your f k’d up s hit… seek some help, dude.

          • Evo Shift

            Awwww, don’t go away mad, little racist. I know you’re just mad because it’s only OK for blacks to kill blacks and because Non-blacks are the only ones who can be racists. Educate yourself and get a real grasp on reality. Better do it quick, because if not, I think you’re going to have a heart attack when ZImmerman beats the shit out of your savior DMX in a few weeks. LMFAO

          • BrandonKay

            Get the help you need, dude, I’m being serious, seriously.

          • Evo Shift

            I think Martin and ZImmerman are both assholes and they both got, and will get, what they deserve. How does than make me crazy? What is crazy is people in here trying to censor Feldman and insert race into the Martin shooting. Racsim and Censorship have no place in America in 2014. In fact, I think they should sell tickets to fight the PRE-MEDITATED killers of Autumn Pasquale…..to the death. I’d buy that ticket. Win or lose, it would be worth the price. The same thing for killers of Melissa Thomas. And, it’s not about race because I’m sure the guy that shot Melissa for her purse was white, right ???????

          • wildersan

            Also something to think about is that our judicial system is NOT perfect just like we have INNOCENT people in jail there are the ones guilty as sin that get away with crimes even murders i.e mob bosses

          • Tiffany Whitman

            I don’t give a dam what that boy did he still ain’t deserve to have his taken from him and he also was a straight A student too. Hell last I checked #Zimmerman made more headlines than Trayvon let the truth be told hell you watch the news. And for the record nobody’s perfect not even you!

          • Evo Shift

            Well, the law, and a jury, both said that he deserved to die. And, I agree. Live like a thug, die like a thug. I’m just glad Trayvon died before he hurt anyone other than Zimmerman.

          • Maureen Carrillo

            Why didn’t Zimmerman use his mixed martial arts on the kid if he felt threatened…. ????? If he is such a good boxer??? It was a manipulated murder of an unarmed innocent kid. Oh, and Evo, are you aware that Trayvon had NO police records. He was visiting his father in Sanford after being suspended from school from having a baggie with marijuana RESIDUE in it… You are one of the reasons the US of A is in the condition it is today….

          • Evo Shift

            I am the OPPOSITE of why are country is in decline. None of what you are saying matters.EVIDENCE proves that Trayvon initiated and sustained a violent attack and caused his own death. END OF STORY. As far as Zimmerman, the guy seems like a Douche and I wouldn’t want to be in the same room with him. Carillo, eh? Typical

          • Evo Shift

            Tracy failed as a father to Trayvon, why do you think he’s be successful in the ring? Are you actually typing in Ebonics, because your grammar is terrible and you make no sense. Why didn’t your father fail to teach you proper English. Or did he not raise you? Wait, do you know who he is?

          • BrandonKay

            Right, Gladys and Robert Zimmerman Sr did a pissa job raising their THUG and are so damn proud of their son with his FOUR arrests for violence/assaulting/killing and lying to a judge, all under the age of THIRTY!

            It’s interesting that all the ZImmerman haters are illiterate and can barely form sentences. I have said multiple times that I think Z is a DOUCHE. But, he has the right to fight whoever he wants in the ring and he had the right to shoot and kill Trayvon Martin. If you don’t like it, you should leave America because that is OUR LAW.

          • Mischief Robot

            that is SO racist. you are comparing trayvon martin to an animal. and how was trayvon martin a violent criminal? he was a kid walking home, with no weapon.

          • Evo Shift

            He attacked Z like an animal with no physical provocation and got put down like an animal. That, by definition, made him a violent criminal and is the reason Z was cleared of all charges. Pay attention.

          • Maureen

            Unfortunately, Trayvon was not here to tell his side of the story. So you believe anything… Z made sure of that…. he knew the law.. he knew what he had to do. Gosh, I wonder how you would feel if this happened to someone in your family. You train of thought is to one-sided to even think logically.

          • Evo Shift

            No one in my family is an animal who initiates and sustains violent attacks on people for following them on private property. I hope everyone who fits that description meets the same self-created fate as Trayvon. The EVIDENCE told the story. Not Zimmerman. Not Trayvon. The EVIDENCE. But, the uneducated and racist can’t comprehend that.

            There is this thing called a respectable job. Maybe Zimmy could look into it. Capitalizing on your notoriety is hardly respectable.

          • angela

            Actually, it was the prosecution who lost this case. They shouldn’t have shown the inteview videos. They should have put Z on the stand. The REAL truth would have came out in questioning. Trayvon was wrongfully profiled that night. He was wrongfully followed. As a neighborhood watch person Z should have identified himself. Period. Regardless he was a child walking from the store going home with candy n drink n his pocket. Trayvon was defending himself from a stranger who persued him. Look at Z history since the trial. He has been out of control like a loose animal.

          • Evo Shift

            Typical stupid and uneducated Trayvon supporter. It’s the DEFENDANT’s CHOICE to take the stand in our judicial system, the prosecution can NOT make him take the stand. Considering most of you are criminals, or have criminals in your family, you think you would know this by now.

          • Evo Shift

            Typical stupid and uneducated Trayvon supporter. Prosecutors can NOT force a defendant to take the stand. Considering most of you are criminals, or have criminals in your family, you should know this by now. Regardelss, the PHYSICAL EVIDENCE proves that Zimmerman did NOT break the law. No testimony could change that. THe thing you need to learn from Trayvon is that if someone calls you a N-word to your face, and you PHYSICALLY attack them, you’re breaking the law and if someone shoots and kills you, they will walk. Conversely, if you call me a Cracker, I will laugh in your face and walk away because I’m not an animal.

          • You

            Only reason he was shot is cuz he was whoopin zimmermans ass for following him like a wannabe superhero but now he says he’s been boxing for awhile so his testimony is invalid and he should be in jail

          • Evo Shift

            You must be another Trayvon because your grammar is terrible and your are stupid as hell. You’re just upset that the killer of Trayvon wasn’t a black man, like it usually is. I don’t like Zimmerman, but I hope he beats the shit out of DMX just so it will piss off all the real racists in this country.

          • laughingatyou

            You are just as simple minded as the next and certainly have no room to call someone else stupid because of a lack of grammar, when you lack a basic understanding of logic. You are so invested in your own ego that you have to reply to anyone who shows you the smallest bit of attention, because you associate being right with having the last word. A really easy way to prove how ego driven you are is to wait for a response, which I am sure won’t take long. Those so quick to feed their ego have no time for critical thinking. It’s actually kind of sad, people such as yourself. You see people with any amount of competence or intellect wouldn’t waste so much time responding to every single comment just for the sake of doing so. When you reply to this or someone else, and you will. Those of us reading your ridiculous posts, will at least get a bit of comic relief because you really are that predictable.

            “I am the OPPOSITE of why are country is in decline.” –

            “You must be another Trayvon because your grammar is terrible and your are stupid as hell.”

            You talk about
            grammar….In the first sentence, the word is “our,” not “are.” In the second sentence, it’s “you are” or “you’re,” not “your are.” If YOU ARE going to be a grammar cop, at least learn to write. Obviously, spell check alone isn’t working for you. It’s a good thing YOU’RE using a typewriter instead of a pen, because I’m sure there would be a few backwards letters in your nonsensical diatribes. You accuse everyone of being a racist and being illiterate. “Hey Mr. Kettle, this is Mr. Pot…..You’re black!”….Not only are you a racist scum bag,
            you’re an idiot as well.

            BTW, OUR country has been in decline for well over 200 years because of sub-humans like yourself.

          • Evo Shift

            So, attacking the typos from my cell phone touch screen is the ONLY argument you can make? That’s pretty sad. So, people like me, who were raised by OUR FATHERS with strong moral and social values, have college educations with good paying jobs that generate tax dollars, and have NO history of being a violent criminal. are the reason for this country’s decline over the last 200 years ??????? What started 200 years ago because my people only got here 100 years ago? You would know that if you READ my post instead of looking for typos. And no, Im not going to edit for syntax errors to satisfy your standards. It’s a forum, not a term paper or business proposal. I wonder if the Trayvon supporters are capable or writing either ???

          • The Doctor

            Well, I’m not going to attack your typos, syntax, or even spelling. I could care less about that. Your continuous use of fallacies in your arguments (appeal to authority, appeal to tradition, ad hominem, reducto ad absurdum, ect) speaks for itself. And btw, who are these “OUR FATHERS” you are referring to?

            Hey, stupid. My people only got here 100 years ago. so don’t be an ignorant bitch and try to blame MY PEOPLE for slavery or genocide.

You need to get focused and register yourself and your new address you sick animal. Wait, if you’re an animal, then you need to be put down according to your own evil outlook. The Klan consider other races of people animals, so it wouldn’t surprise me if you have a few white robes laying around that smell like you aka the scent of a wet dog.

      • Ilyana Marcano

        When someone tracks down a person walking after a 911 op tells them that it isn’t necessary, and the person ends up being killed. It is murder because Zimmerman didn’t leave well enough alone.

        May you receive a similar lack of understand if one of your family members ends up being killed. As long as Zimmerman doesn’t hurt the people that were against him going free, he can continue to hurt his supporters, like you.

        He’s a loser with martial arts training and a desire to kill. Maybe he is ready for a fight after assaulting his ex wife, her dad, and his girlfriend. He’s not a killer based on a jury of his peers huh? Some of them were sorry for the decision they made, but if it wasn’t the dumb ass people carefully selected for the jury that likely think like the killer, he would be behind bars wishing he had a gun to keep the inmates off of his ass.

        You’re probably don’t see anything wrong with harming kids anyway, you pro-pedophile piece of trash. Evo Shift your brain back into your damn skull and tighten your helmet. Oh and stop fucking your sister, its disgusting.

      • 89107

        Man shut yo bitch ass up! He killed that unarmed boy for no reason. You heard the horrible cries for help silenced by the gun that fat bastard had. Then the evil fucking smile when zimmerman was announced not guilty.. fuck outta here bitch. you must be racist. burn in hell hoe

  • Evo Shift

    Trayvon caused his own death. Zimmerman is probably a douche. Sharpton and Jackson have more blood on their hands than either of them. We all who the REAL racists are in this country.

          Come on CoreSHIT.. even your own peeps are wondering if you still have all your marbles the way you worship Zippy lmao

          • Evo Shift

            I think Zimmerman is a douche based on what we all hear. I wouldn’t want to be in the same room with him, let alone worship him. But, because I recognize the contitutional rights of Feldman and Zimmerman, I worship them and/or I am a racist? LOL News Flash: Republican freed the slaves and wanted to ship them all back to Liberai with compensation. Next to never having slaves in the first place, that would have been the best outcome. Statistics don’t lie.

          • BrandonKay

            Where is the “slave” and “party” BS coming from? lol.. You’re on a roll embarrassing yourself, dude. lol

        • Matt

          I was just busting your balls b/c you forgot the word “know” in your last sentence. I agree that Sharpton and Jackson are the biggest racists in this country. And I agree that Trayvon partially caused his own death. I do think he attacked Zimmerman. But Zimmerman was a wannabe cop who only had the balls to follow Trayvon b/c he has a pistol on his hip. Sharpton and Jackson are the biggest hypocrites this planet has ever seen. They have incited more riots than anyone since the colonial days. But if Zimmerman agrees to this fight, don’t you think that makes him a P.O.S.? Using his fame for killing someone (whether justified or not) to make money in a boxing match.

          • Evo Shift

            I totally agree that ZImmerman is a piece of shit for doing this fight. The guys seems on a path of self destruction. So, if he breaks the law, or screws up, let him get whatever he deserves. Unlike blacks, I don’t blindly support somebody because of the color of their skin.

          • Pii

            You are definitely an African american. You sound like the type of person that is pissed off by the way his or her peers are behaving towards a sensitive event involving America’s old demon ”the race issue” . I can only make assumptions but carefully analyzing your previous posts and certain expressions you use when replying to someone with hastiness, points out in that direction, I believe you have some sort of African American cultural background. ( pardon my English, my first language is french )

  • Latoya

    First Zimmerman is not a dam celebrity and he don’t deserve no fame what so ever so why the hell is people still giving him the satisfaction of letting him think he is famous. 2nd #Zimmerman weak ass could not go toe to toe with a 17 year old child so if he was so defenseless why the hell he want to go in the ring with an aldult and celebrity at that. If anybody should go in the ring they should let him take his ass in the ring with #Trayvon daddy. #Zimmerman is a murderer who got off because the state of #florida is still igornant and again WHEN DID ZIMMERMAN WEAK ASS BECOME A CELEBRITY!!!!! Why in the hell this dude still getting any media attention anyway hell his coward ass can’t can’t fight.

    • Evo Shift

      Trayvon didn’t have a father. He had a sperm donor. If he had a real father, he’d still be alive. ZImmerman is a celebrity because Big Al Sharpton exploited his situation to perpetuate the racial terrorism the real racists wage ever day. So, thank big Al for that. I think Z should be a celebrity for ridding the world of just another young violent black criminal. Philly is full of them. We need more gun carrying citizens like Z. Even though, Z sounds like a douche based on his media portrayal.

      • BrandonKay

        You know what, CoreSHIT, you attempted to call Trayvon Martin an “animal” in a previous post for defending himself from a stalking freak.. but YOU are really the animal and your desperate moronic words prove it. WOW!

    Provide “justice”? Is that the excuse he’s using to justify promoting this fight? GTHOH!

  • Sage

    I actually want this fight to go. Though I’d like to see The Game in that ring cuz he can sure beat the living shit out of Zimmerman. If I can’t have my wish, DMX bite off Zimmerman’s ears and a few chunks of his belly fat! I hate boxing but with Zimmerman’s acquittal I want justice even if it means street justice.

    • Evo Shift

      Trayvon DID get street justice, dummy. He got it right in the chest.

            The acceptance of Nature vs Nurture, by definition, means that I am NOT a racist. But, to deny facts, statistics, and my personal experiences would be foolish. The acceptance that there are exceptions to every rule means that I judge each person individually and treat people they way I want to be treated. If all the above makes me a racist in YOUR opinion, so be it.

  • Disgusted

    George Zimmerman is a “CELEBRITY”?!?!?! GET THE FUCK OUT OF HERE! So the new (old) way to get fame is to kill Black people for sport! And DMX agrees to this Shit?! DMX is DISGUSTING and a DISGRACE to all Black People on this continent. Damon Feldman is DISGUSTING. Any media outlet or provider that even considers this SHIT is DISGUSTING! For this to even be an idea let’s you know what a Black person’s life is worth.

      I’m racist? Riiiiiiight. Then what is Sharpton and Jackson? I think the white guy who shot up the SUV full of AA punks in Florida should get life Does that satisfy you? Furthermore, if I find 3 white guys raping a black gir in an alley, I’m going to stop it, call 911, and testify in court. The typical black guy in a reverse situation won’t “snitch on a brotha” and just walk away……or get in line for his turn. Truth..

  • colono

    This promoter has found a new low. Nothing good can come of this.

    • Evo Shift

      I agree. Zimmerman needs to just shut up and go away. The more he is in the media, the more he appears to be a real DOUCHE. If he had any sense, he would leave the country and try to be the best citizen he can be in another country.

  • Adrienne

    REally..A picture of DMX in an “orange jumpsuit”….You couldn’t find a more suitable picture of him?? Yet, the “baby killer” gets a picture that sub-consciously paints him as a potential victim…really!! IDIOTS!!!

    • Evo Shift

      Although I like DMX’s music, he IS a convicted felon and does flaunt that he is a thug. So, if the prison jumpsuit fits, wear it. FYI: I am also an avid sportbike rider/racer and the Rough Riders give us all a bad name and the mob harassment/beating in NYC is typical for that crew.

      • Adrienne

        Zimmer is also a ‘felon’ (soon to be convicted)

        • Evo Shift

          Uh, I think all charges were dropped. But, if Z keeps acting like a douche (including this fight) I agree he is going to end up a convicted felon and/or dead. Just because I am anti-Trayvon doesn’t mean I am pro-Zimmerman.

  • ITrue

    I bet if it where Casey Anthony everyone would be on the same page.

      I think Casey is guilty of something, but she got off and now it’s between her and God. Frankly, I don’t wanna see her or Zimmerman ever again. But, I did enjoy watching my man Vai kick the shit outta Jose Conseco who is twice his size. Go Birds!

  • sharon johnson

    Zimmerman has become famous for bin a child killer. Its like he’s rubbing salt in the wound of travons famil,friends and america. He’s not a celeb. I only hope dmx won’t b high when he fights. We need someone clean and healthy to beat the living day lights out of zimmerman

    • Evo Shift

      No, he’s famout for defending himself against a violent criminal and for the EVIDENCE in his trail proving that hie justifiably shot Martin. To be frank, Sharpton and Jackson made him famous. If it wasn’t for those 2 race baiters, Zimmerman would be unknown because the EVIDENCE proved there was no reason to arrest him, let along charge him for a crime in the shooting. The salt in the wound of the Martin family is that they failed Trayvon as parents and then they tried to profit from his death.

  • Rain Francica

    Zimmerman is a murderer. Feldman is slime. He is a wanna-be. He is trying to be like Vince McMahon. The hugh difference is Vince McMahon is a Professional. If he wants to do this country just he will stop this fight from happening. ……. everyone contact boxing promoter Damon Feldman. (Twitter name @Hollywoodbox11; email fightgeorge@hotmail.com) and demand that he withdraw his invitation to George Zimmerman for the Celebrity Boxing Match. The hashtag #stopthefight .

    This is so ridiculous!!! When did George Zimmerman become a celebrity??? Saying maybe we can get some kind of justice by letting him step in the boxing ring and get beat up is such bull just say what it really is all about MONEY!!! I guess u think oh yeah everybody a wanna see GZ get boxed out by DMX even though u say it’s not about race it’s mighty funny I choose a black man as his opponent WOW!!! Get out of here with that I for one will not be supporting this foolishness and and any petition out there to stop it I’ll gladly sign up isn’t it enough he’s walking around a free man after he murdered that child u don’t think the Martin family has been through enough

    • Evo Shift

      He’s not a murdered and Trayvon wasn’t a innocent child. The evidence proves both.. If you want to ignore the evidence and our Constitution, then just GTFO of our country. If the Martin family did a better job of raising their violent criminal son, he’d still be alive.

          • The Doctor

            You asked for an intelligent counterpoint, well here it is:
            Your questions are not thought provoking because they’ve been asked and answered many times before. The founding fathers that you idolize so much would never have used European indentured servants in place of African slaves (whom they considered little more than animals). Had the civil war not happened, the south would have still fallen eventually due to the unsustainability of an industry dependent on slavery. Slaves eventually revolt. History proves that.
            All of your arguments are based on appeals to ad populum, strawman arguments, ad hominems, and general appeals to authority or anecdotal evidence.

          • Evo Shift

            You’re completely wrong. They were ALREADY using MY ancestors as slaves as indentured servants in Europe. Slaves did NOT revolt. The South didn’t fall. The North benefited from industrialization and wanted to deny the South the “cheap” labor they used to compete. The Civil was was an ECONOMIC war, it was NOT about freeing the slaves. If you were half as educated as you would like us the think you are, you would know that. Every American should idolize our founding fathers. If you don’t you should GTFO of America. If they had knows the result, they would have never PURCHASED African slaves from OTHER AFRICAN. If Lincoln knew what we know now, he would have followed HIS original plan to return all freed slaves to Liberria with paid compensation. I think the former, or the latter should have happened. What WONDERFUL lives all the african americans would have today if their slave forefathers never left Africa, or were returned to Africa after the Civil War? Your doctor screen name is a joke.

            The North benefited from industrialization and wanted to deny the South the “cheap” labor they used to compete. The Civil War was an ECONOMIC war. It was about STATE RIGHTS. It was NOT about freeing the slaves.

  • Greg C

    Damon isn’t sorry for what he did, because he did it on purpose to get attention for the fight. It’s the name of the game. He also roped Earl Simmons into the fight by making him think it would be some sort of justice for Trayvon, and I can’t believe he fell for it. It’s only going to give Zimmerman a leg up, and that’s okay for Damon because it involves money for him.

    What’s next, marketing prison fights? The proceeds are not going to the young man’s family, and Damon laughs when you ask him about it, I don’t know where I was wrong in saying that people should boycott the fight, and Earl needs to be ashamed if he fights. I guess i’m bad for business by having a heart right? Damon has lost an associate in me, he’s pissed me off before, but this was the last straw.

    • Evo Shift

      I think Z is a douche who should go away BASED ON THE MEDIA’S PORTRAYAL, but you can’t censored Feldman or anyone else. The country will vote with their wallets. If the fight sells, that’s the vote. You people trying to censor others is shameful, un-American, and frankly, just stupid and simple. It’s been proven all Trayvon supporters are simply stupid because the ignore the evidence.

  • blue2

    I’m just so upset that so many people are giving ‘Evo Shift’ a platform. Every time that you respond to him, you are giving him the green light to continue talking. He does have a right to his own opinion just like this guy (Feldman) has a right to his own legal hustle. However, we can put an end to it by, in Evo’s case, not responding, and in Feldman’s case, not watching. Remember, it takes two people to make an argument. And no matter how upsetting his comments may be, he has a right to them.

    We as Americans (I’m including myself in this statement) we do complaining well (i.e. don’t like the neighbors breed of dog; lets band it from the neighborhood- don’t eat meat; lets ban it from restaurants, etc.). If we don’t all think alike then the people that don’t think like us are idiots. But our differences is what make America what it is.

    Of course we are not always going to agree with one another, or even like each other. Everything always seems to come down to race at the end of the day. But it is our history that has taught us that separation is the way of life. We are our future so we can change that. Let’s not fuel the already great divide by calling names, pointing fingers, and ostricizing one another. If we don’t agree, let’s just keep it moving.

    Look at it this way: OJ Simpson upset a lot of people when he was acquitted of murder by a Jury of his peers. But karma kicked him in the arse and now he’s serving time anyway. Like Zimmerman, after his acquittal he continued to do the most asinine things. Maybe karma will rear its ugly head again, and the same will happen to Zimmerman. And like the Zimmerman case there were people of different races on both sides of the coin that believed justice was or was not served. But at the end of the day, the big picture was that human lives were taken. Morally, this is what any argument should be about. Not race. Not that Trayvon smoked weed or got in trouble in school (if this were the case then a lot of children, black, white, brown, or yellow would have the same fate).

    In Evo’s case, he may not be a racist. He may very well be a man who believes in his judicial system. He may be a man who grew up in a neighborhood that didn’t have to deal with people of other races and the only thing he new of people that are different were the things he saw on tv. Who knows what the route of opinion derives from. I don’t know him so I can not judge him. My point is, everyone has their own opinions because of who they are. Let’s let him have his and just keep it at that. Why upset ourselves by creating more hatred. Because at the end of the day, that’s what these type of forums do…put us against each other.

    So having said that, I plan to not even indulge the promotion of this fight by not ordering it at all. Why would I pay for something like that?

    • Evo Shift

      I agree with mostly everything you have said, especially that censorship and trying to control others in un-American. I also agree that Zimmeran APPEARS to be a complete DOUCHE based on what we all see in the media. If that is the case, he will truly hang himself like OJ did and will be dead or in jail soon enough. I am the first one to say that if ZImmerman breaks the law in the future, the law should come down on him HARD. If anything, for not having the common sense to shut up, lay low, and to live every day like a perfect citizen after what he has been through. I grew up surrounded by all colors in North Philly, I hate racists, but respect good AMERICANS who treat others the way they want to be treated. If you do that, then color won’t matter. But, blacks ALWAYS make EVERYTHING about race. If you disagree, then you are NOT paying attention. Regardless, this fight is in poor taste and Zimmerman should just go away.

  • SMDH

    I now see Damon Feldman is dumber than he looks! How the hell are you giving the country justice from a boxing match?!!! Zimmerman KILLS a boy and you think his family will feel that justice has been served because he gets punched in the face?! His a$$ should have “boxed” Trayvon since he was so interested in boxing instead of shooting him dead!!!!! How do you become a damned celebrity from killing an innocent person?! GTFOH!!!

  • OstentatiousCharm

    Lol, You guys are falling right into this Evo characters little “Im the king of internet responses” game. The more you listen and respond and become angered by his ignorant yet savvy and sophisticated comments the happier you make him. He apparently has nothing but time on his hands to sit at his computer and respond to every comment pointed towards him to piss you all off lol. It is clearly his job to know who deserves what and who is guilty of what AND what their punishment should be. He is the DEATHDEALER lol…. Keep in mind NONE of us were there when this happened, So NONE of us really know what happened, therefore NONE of us can judge… Not I, You or this Emo Shift, What we do know is Trayvon is dead. This alone is the only FACT of the matter that is to this very day valid. The response fella has his agenda whatever it may be but it does not change anything nor does his opinion matter. Obvious his view will never change So ummm…. Why pay attention to all the shenanigans again??? Ive put guys like this to sleep for years with a simple “Ok you win” lol.. Funny… God is the real judge… Cant fool him… AND GO…..

      I agree with a lot of your post. But, what about the PHYSICAL EVIDENCE in the trial? My “goal” is for people to be honest with each other and do their best to take race out of the equation as much as possible. Everything about this case has revolved around race and exposed the real racists in this country for what they are.
