Heeding to vocal opposition to his plans, Philadelphia celebrity boxing promoter Damon Feldman has canceled the upcoming match between rapper DMX and George Zimmerman, the acquitted killer of unarmed teen Trayvon Martin.
Feldman said on Saturday that he was "done" with Zimmerman and decided the "major payday" was not worth it. "I know no one else would walk away like I did," he announced on Twitter.
In comments to Rolling Stone, Feldman admitted he erred in choosing Zimmerman as one of his "celebrity" boxers. "I looked into the eyes of my son and daughter today and couldn't imagine someone killing them and getting off scot-free. It just really hurt."
