Forget about any past matches that took place between Muhammad Ali and George Foreman. Or for that matter, you can forget the bout between Iron Mike Tyson and Lennox Lewis. The latest news on the brutal art of pugilism is all about a black rapper who wants to rip into a white policeman.
After thousands of applications, DMX was the chosen one for a match with Trayvon Martin’s killer cop, George Zimmerman. The unfair decision, given by the judge, regarding the white cop who went scot-free after killing Trayvon in cold blood, left a vacuum in race relations.
Now, finally DMX is entering the space to right the wrong done to his community. There are many Black Americans who would be more than happy to see George Zimmerman being hit repeatedly by a Black American. And DMX would gladly fulfill that request for them.
Although the match is still in its preliminary stages, if things go as per plan the fated fight may take place soon. There are many though who are against this showdown since it smacks of racism and revenge.
But the challenge was originally from Zimmerman himself who isn’t able to find a regular job after the trial in which he was let off. He has become a pariah and an outcast.
Boxing matches are the only option left for the policeman who is shunned by all employers. So DMX will get to beat the living daylights out of him when the showdown occurs.
