Whew, looks like we dodged a bullet there.

Celebrity boxing promoter Damon Feldman perhaps didn’t realize the amount of vitriol that would be directed his way when he announced that George Zimmerman would be participating in a boxing match against DMX. Although Zimmerman had shot and killed Trayvon Martin, Feldman only saw dollar signs when he initially put the bout together. But after dealing with the uproar, Feldman has had second thoughts and decided to cancel the proposed event.

“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,” Feldman tweeted over the weekend. He did delete the tweet but it appears that he’ll make an official announcement at a press conference this week. Hopefully this isn’t some ploy to draw more attention to what would surely be a disgraceful three-ring circus of an event.

Meanwhile, I’m sure Zimmerman will be busy looking for his next come up.
