Following a week of backlash, Celebrity Boxing promoter Damon Feldman, has decided to throw in the towel on the DMX vs. Zimmerman bout. Via his Twitter account, he said:
All you people are right. The George Zimmerman fight is canceled I’m sorry for anyone I hurt with this but this was a very big opportunity thank you. I want to thank everyone for the good n bad comments I’ve made the choice to cancel the fight w George Zimmermann more to life then money.
It was my decision to cancel the george zimmerman fight it was worth a lot of money to me but people’s feelings meant more to me. I walked away from av million dollar payday with this fight but to be honest I’d rather be happy and make people happy thank you
