Update: Zimmerman Boxing Match Canceled

Damon Feldman
The promoter of a celebrity boxing match between George Zimmerman, who was acquitted of murder in the death of Trayvon Martin, and rapper DMX that sparked an uproar last week when it was announced said Saturday (February 8th) that the bout has been canceled.

Damon Feldman, who has organized many fights between celebrities, tweeted, "Done with George Zimmerman if you had a major payday sitting in front of you, I know no one else would walk away like I did ***Next!!."

Feldman had not only been criticized for the planned fight, but his assistant said the promoter had received threats and had to get a bodyguard. However, Feldman later deleted his tweet and said he would announce his final decision in a Tuesday press conference.
