Promoter Calls Off George Zimmerman-DMX Fight

The man behind the George Zimmerman-DMX fight announced that he has cancelled the bout. Earlier today, Damon Feldman revealed on Twitter that he made the decision to forego "a lot of money" because people's feelings mean more to him than money.


Feldman, you'll recall, is an enormous charlatan, even by boxing standards. He puts on "celebrity" fights and voluntarily likens his work to "the WWE of boxing." The chances of this fight happening were only slightly better than it being on the level if it ever did happen.


Which leaves us here, likely the plan all along. Feldman isn't the promoter who put on the interpretive dance version of a George Zimmerman's public execution, he's the guy who didn't do that.
