(CNN) — Let’s get ready to … mumble.

As in, what now, George Zimmerman?

Seems like the former neighborhood watchman has found yet another way to remain in the public limelight.

This time, he’ll be stepping into a boxing ring to fight rapper DMX.

Zimmerman said the celebrity boxing match was his idea. Boxing was his hobby, he told Radar Online last month, even prior to the “incident.”

The incident, of course, is the February 2012 encounter in which he shot dead an unarmed Trayvon Martin, 17. He stood trial for murder, but was acquitted.

“Prior to the incident, I was actually going to the gym for weight loss and doing boxing-type training for weight loss,” he told Radar.

“A mutual friend put me in contact with Damon and provided me with an opportunity and motivation to get back in shape and continue with my weight loss goals and also be able to help a charity out.”

Damon is Damon Feldman, owner of Celebrity Boxing and self-described opportunist, whose claim to fame is putting together bizarre matchups. Think Tonya Harding, Michael Lohan.

He said last week that he was accepting offers for someone to step into the ring for a three-round, pay-per-view fight with Zimmerman.

“The news has been out for an hour and my e-mail is overloaded with 8,000 people wanting to fight George,” Feldman told CNN on Thursday.

Early Wednesday morning, he said he’s picked the contender. Out of more than 15,000 e-mailed requests, he’s going with DMX.

“The match will be one of the Biggest Celebrity Boxing matches of all time,” his news release said (uppercase emphasis his).

But in order to find out where and when it will take place, we’ll have to wait until next week.

DMX, as we know is a rapper, and braggadocio is his calling card.

He’s out for blood, he told TMZ. Not only will he break every rule in boxing, he said, he’ll “beat the living (expletive)” out of Zimmerman.

Ian Karmel, a writer for “Chelsea Lately,” has a better idea.

“They should send Floyd Mayweather to the ring and tell George Zimmerman it’s DMX,” he tweeted. “He won’t know the difference.”

George Zimmerman REALLY Wants To Fight Kanye West

(AllHipHop News) It’s another February day where George Zimmerman is asking to beat up another Black man. Two years after his fatal shooting of Trayvon Martin in February of 2012, George Zimmerman’s promoters are saying he is asking for a boxing match with Kanye West.

Why does Zimmerman want to fight the Yeezus rapper? According to sources with TMZ, Zimmerman has taken issue with Kanye’s treatment of seemingly defenseless people. Kanye assaulting a paparazzi member in September of 2013 and his recent altercation with a racist 18 year old heckler has rubbed Zimmerman the wrong way.

This is the second rapper Zimmerman has voiced his desire to fight. A few days ago, promoter Damon Feldman of the Celebrity Boxing Federation informed MFIR Radio that rapper Game would be a “perfect match” for the training Zimmerman.
