The past few weeks have been filled with rumors concerning a celebrity boxing match against George Zimmerman Â and Dmx. The owner of Celebrity Boxing, Damon Feldman tweeted aboutÂ the cancellation earlier today.
In the tweet, Feldman kept it short and to the point.
"The George Zimmerman fight is canceled I'm sorry for anyone I hurt with this but this was a very big opportunity thank you,"
Feldman also added that even the money could no longer keep him motivated to put this fight on and that people's feelings meant more to him.
"I wasn't being disrespected [sic] to anyone I had a plan here with this fight I'll let you know soon hope everyone is happy I'm very sorry," he tweeted. "I want to thank everyone for the good n [sic] bad comments I've made the choice to cancel the fight w George Zimmermann [sic] more to life then [sic] money.""This was the wrong person to put in the ring and define celebrity boxing thank you," he tweeted from his handle@hollywoodbox11.Â "I walked away from av [sic] million dollar payday with this fight but to be honest I'd rather be happy and make people happy thank you."
A few days ago, DMX spoke to TMZ about how he felt going into to this fight.
"I am going to beat the living f--- out of him,"Â DMX boasted, according to TMZ.Â "I am breaking every rule in boxing to make sure I f--- him right up."
TMZÂ has confirmed that rapper DMX has been named George Zimmerman's opponent in an upcoming celebrity boxing match. Daman Feldman, the fight's promoter, explained how X was chosen.
"Celebrity boxing promoter Damon Feldman tells us, DMX was selected out of 15,000 applicantsÂ â€¦Â all of whom wanted a piece of Zimmerman in the ring after he issued the open challenge to fight anyone willing to take him." (TMZ)
A few days ago we reported DMX had a few choice words for Zimmerman after he got whim of the celebrity boxing match.
"I am going to beat the living f**k out him â€¦ I am breaking every rule in boxing to make sure I f**k him right up." He then said he'dÂ literally pissÂ on George's face." (TMZ)
The time and date of the match is set to be released Next Wednesday at a News Conference.
Although both parties have had a verbal agreement on getting in the ring together, a representative for DMX says they have yet to see a contract so until then it is not %100 official yet.
Hold off on placing your wagers ... money has become a big snag in George Zimmerman's boxing match against DMX -- the rapper's rep tells TMZ, contract negotiations are STILL ongoing ... so the fight isn't official ... yet. The rep Domenick Nati tells us, DMX verbally agreed to "beat Zimmerman's ass" ... IF and when he sees the terms of a contract ... which hasn't happened yet. Once an agreement has been finalized, we're told DMX will officially be down for the bout. (TMZ)
While overseas, DMX spoke withÂ 359HipHopÂ on the state of rap. When it comes to where rap music is today , Earl Simmons is less than amused.
"The quality of rap fuckin' sucks right now,"Â DMXÂ says in an interview withÂ 359HipHop. "There are certain nice rappers, but for the most part, niggas suck. Thatâ€™s what the fuck it is, man. Take it how you want to fuckin' take it. Straight up. The camera man agrees with me. Thatâ€™s what it is man, take it how you want to take it. Bring it.Â What?"Â
The rapper also spoke on his recent string of arrests.
"The last few times I got locked up, I was locked up for hours at a time," DMX says. "Driving without a license. Who the fuck gets locked up for driving without a license? Me, because Iâ€™m famous. Thatâ€™s all. Police suck dick. Thatâ€™s what the fuck they do. They suck dick. It is what it is. Iâ€™m not a criminal. Iâ€™m not committing crimes and shit. I drive my fucking car. I have a car. I drive it.Â Oh, you want to pull me over and lock me up? Do what you do, homie, but Iâ€™ll be right back out doing the same fuckin' thing I was doing 8 hours ago. So fuck you."Â
When asked aboutÂ Eminem, DMX kept it short and sweet.
"I donâ€™t know what Eminem is," DMX said. "I know heâ€™s a talented artist. We have a good relationship, but donâ€™t ask me no random shit to start no random beef. Please. Don't do that."Â

Rapper DMX is once again under the public eye. This time, the rapper is under fire for wearing his birthday suit and running around a Detroit, Michigan hotel hours before his show.
His publicist has released a statement saying it was nothing more than a "playful dare" :
""DMX was at Detroit hotel with his DJ (DJ NonStop) and his road manager (Montana) before his performance with Eve and Lil Kim on August 31st. X and the team were killing time at the hotel before the concert and dared each other to streak in the hallway. No one was aware that security cameras were rolling and it was just a playful dare between friends,"
Currently it does not look like the rapper will face any charges. A censored version of X streaking can be seen below:
