Claim: Zimmerman Fight Back On, But Without DMX
After the original promoter pulled out because his children were threatened, an online company called FilmOn has secured rights to the George Zimmerman fight, but without rapper DMX.
FilmOn says it’s gonna give the public what it wants — blood — and tells us DMX is out as the challenger because “much bigger names than DMX” want in.
The owner of FilmOn, Alki David, tells TMZ … the fight will no longer be a celebrity boxing match… “this is going to be like Fight Club … a very bloody event.” Alki says the fight will happen March 15 from a secret location … and all profits will go to the Trayvon Martin Foundation.
But TMZ has learned the resurrected fight is not yet a done deal — we’re told FilmOn is still negotiating with [the original promoter] for the rights and nothing has been signed.
