Rapper DMX was picked to step into the ring with George Zimmerman on Wednesday in a celebrity boxing match, but the rapper's representative said Saturday that the fight had been canceled.
"Damon Feldman has announced that the George Zimmerman fight is canceled via his Twitter," said Domenick Nati of Nati Celebrity Services. "We thank you for all of the support from DMX's fans. This situation will not affect any of DMX's upcoming concerts in America or around the world."
"It was my decision to cancel the George Zimmerman fight," Hollywood boxing promoter Damon Feldman posted on his Twitter feed Saturday.
A subsequent tweet from Feldman read "I walked away from a million dollar payday with this fight but to be honest I'd rather be happy and make people happy. Thank you."
According to Feldman's Twitter feed, a media conference in which he would reveal the details of the fight had been scheduled for Wednesday.
