George Zimmerman to Fight in a Celebrity Boxing Match


The man who was acquitted last year in the fatal shooting of Trayvon Martin, George zimmerman, is heading to the boxing ring.
As far as who he's set to fight, no official deal has been made yet.
There are reports that Zimmerman could square off in a celebrity boxing match against rapper DMX.
The former neighborhood watchman says the boxing match was his idea. DMX's publicist says no contract or paperwork has been signed and if it all goes down, he will release an official statement.
15,000 people signed up to fight Zimmerman.
The match is set to take place in March.

The three people suspected of selling heroin to Philip Seymour Hoffman made their first court appearance last night.
The suspects were arraigned on drug charges.
Another man is also being questioned in the case.
Police say one of the suspects had Hoffman's cell phone number.
The 46-year-old oscar winning actor was found dead Sunday in his apartment with a needle in his arm.
Meanwhile, Broadway theaters dimmed their lights in memory of Hoffman.
