George Zimmerman stepping into the ring for 'celebrity' boxing match

George Zimmerman Stepping Into the Ring for Celebrity Boxing Match

Over the past few months we've learned about George Zimmerman's artistic side, but now he's planning to put down his paintbrush to prepare for a new role. HLN has the details.

'George Zimmerman has agreed to be part of a celebrity boxing match. That story's trending -- and so far, he has no opponent.'

In late January, TMZ first reported Zimmerman's plans to enter the ring.

When the issue of his opponent's race was brought up, celebrity boxing promoter Damon Feldman told the tabloid Zimmerman is willing to fight anyone.

Zimmerman told Radar Online the boxing match was all his idea.

'Boxing isn't new to me. It's something I had picked up well before the incident and it's something that I liked, I enjoyed and I kept up with it.'

WFTS reports the boxing match will take place March 1 and the profits will be donated to a charity, which has yet to be named.

Zimmerman did tell Radar Online he would love to fight someone who won't hurt him too badly ... like Papa Smurf, the Easter Bunny or the Michelin Man.

He is no celebrity. He is a murder.

That's not what a jury of his peers determined. And in our culture, criminals, murderers, bank robbers have, for centuries, become celebrities. Get over it, Meghann.

Anybody here who thinks he's NOT doing this to make some money for HIMSELF; I've got a nice piece of property in Death Valley you can buy for an investment.

Thank you Arsenio. Jackson was trying to make it a race thing and you said he killed an American boy. Jackson put away the race card.

sigh...just stay undercover, man. No one cares what you say or do. That being said, I don't want to hear from Jackson every again either.

Pit him against Bieber and Cyrus. Give him a gun to "defend" himself... Then he'll be convicted for murder. I suppose you could say that would be killing 3 birds with one stone.

If Trayvon was white the story would be very different.

Celebrity boxing. Has the word celebrity taken on a whole new meaning? Good grief Charley Brown!
