George Zimmerman is facing the fight of his life.

The former neighborhood watch captain, who was acquitted last July of murder in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin, has agreed to a charity boxing match, according to Radar Online.

According to TMZ, which was the first to report the news, the rapper said “I will beat the f–k out of him,” adding, “I would not be boxing for me. I’d be boxing for the legacy of Trayvon Martin and for his family.”

The rapper — who received a tattoo of Martin on his leg after a jury acquitted Zimmerman of second-degree murder and manslaughter charges in the killing of the 17-year-old teen — told TMZ:

“I would box him to knock him out,” adding, “I would definitely take pleasure in it. It’s legal, and I want to show him you can solve your disputes without a weapon.”

According to Feldman’s Twitter account, the boxing promoter has published several tweets asking updating his followers on the status of the match and suggesting other opponents he would like to recruit:

“Who do you want to see George Zimmerman fight right now it looks like the rapper the game really wants it,” he tweeted.

“Over 3,700 emails to fight George Zimmerman we need great draw opponent @thegame says he wants it. We may do this in Tampa Florida,” he wrote.

Feldman told theGrio that he is expecting this game to be a big match and whoever decides to take on Zimmerman is “going to be an instant star.”

“It’s going to build controversy and people like to see that,” he added.

As for Zimmerman’s experience in the ring, he told Radar Online, “Boxing isn’t new to me. It’s something I had picked up well before the incident and it’s something that I liked, I enjoyed.”

Zimmerman reportedly plans to donate any proceeds to charity.
