Rapper The Game Accepts George Zimmerman Boxing Challenge

Rapper The Game stepped up as the first volunteer, telling TMZ “I’d beat the F**k out of him.”

The 6’4 and 205 pound rapper The Game is known for his street brawls just as much as his rap career. His brawl with rapper Spider Loc in 2012 made the rounds and he turned Lil’ Wayne’s birthday party in a scene out of fight club.

Game who has a tattoo of Trayvon says his motivation would be to box “for the legacy of Trayvon Martin and for his family.”

“I would definitely take pleasure in it. It’s legal, and I want to show him you can solve your disputes without a weapon,” he added.

Nothing racist about the crew lining up to give Mr. Zimmerman another beat down.

Ya know, if there is anyone who has a good excuse not to donate their earnings to charity, it’s someone who is a couple of million dollars in debt over legal fees that he should never have had to incur....

How about he take on Spike Lee, the guy who pretty much put out a contract for Georges death? I would have no problem beating the crap out of that racist Marxist Islamo arse kissing piece of bug sh*t.

So, he’s taking the Tanya Harding route to further his celebrity.

I’m questioning the motives of those who are lining up to deliver the punches to Mr. Zimmerman.

In other celebrity boxing events, I don’t recall the sparring partners getting to select their opponents.

Maybe George plans on having his replacement PF-9 in his glove.

Note to “The Game”: avoid the mount position and going for any Ground-N-Pound. It’s Zimmerman’s specialty and he’s undefeated.

Shouldn’t they call him “The Gay” being that all gangsta rappers are a bunch of karaoke arse mincing limp wristed Kansas city faggots?

Shouldn’t he donate it to the lawyer who didn’t get paid?

At the trial didn’t Zimmerman’s trainer say he sucked at fighting?

Means nothing unless he has endurance. In High school I was a 6’ 140 pound skinny geek who would regularly kick the ass of every top wrestler/football player in my school when we boxed no matter how big a body they had because I ran 15 to 20 miles a day as a cross country runner. They would be spent 2 minutes in and I would just be getting started and absolutely obliterate them every time. People like Mike Tyson realized that which is why he would go full out in the first round. But if you could avoid him for a few rounds he was like silly putty which is how Buster Douglas finally beat him. Muscle means crap, it really does. The men to fear are those who can run 10 miles without breaking a sweat I dont care how thin they are. I’m an old man now, but back in my prime, a photo like that wouldn’t scare me in the least - matter of fact it would do the exact opposite as I loved beating the sh*t out of boneheads like that.

That was just to lull a future opponent.

Well from the looks of Z after Trayvon got done with him at least he can take punch. :-)

Zimmerman is just not that bright.

The best thing for him to do would be to disappear for a while and get his life together. But, no, He wants to be a celebrity. That is not going to end well for him.

What George needs is a good friend and a councilor.

He has been through a lot and it’s natural that it impacted him severely.

The problem is that the poor guy probably can’t get any kind of decent job and doesn’t have any money, so he is accepting such offers, that he should turn down, but may not have too many options.

His entire world has collapsed around him.

I feel for him.

Yah, George had his 15 minutes of fame in not the most
positive of ways. He dismayed supporters with a few more
minutes of fame with a domestic violence rap. Now he wants
to play celebrity punch-out. George, time to sit down and
STFU.

And the Black Ku Klux Klan hate is all over the net...with the same stupid Black Racist theme...”he murdered Trayvon”...

Wonder what the Black KKK will do if Zimm wins?

I get your point, but Michael Jai White is a serious martial artist. Zimmerman was losing to Martin before the gun came out. I was only making a point that they would line up some huge Black guy that can fight and is a celebrity.
