The proposed 'celebrity' boxing match between George Zimmerman and rapper DMX has now been cancelled, according to the fight's promoter, due to the backlash.

Celebrity boxing promoter Damon Feldman made the following statements:

The George Zimmerman fight is canceled. I’m sorry for anyone I hurt with this.

It was worth a lot of money to me but people’s feelings meant more to me.

I walked away from a million dollar payday with this fight but to be honest I’d rather be happy and make people happy.

Even though Feldman cancelled the fight, that doesn't mean it won't happen. Apparently there are others who still want to make it happen and are trying. Only time will tell what's next.
