Rapper DMX is going to fight George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch volunteer accused of killing Florida teenager Trayvon Martin.

According to TMZ, the one-time accused killer will be boxing for charity against hip hop star DMX.

The fight promoter says he received 15,000 emails from people asking for a chance to fight Zimmerman.

When and where the fight will take place will be announced next week. The boxing match was reportedly Zimmerman's idea.
