“Boxing isn’t new to me,” Zimmerman told Radar Online. “It’s something I had picked up well before the incident and it’s something that I liked, I enjoyed, and I kept up with it and I was able to lose a tremendous amount of weight and get a healthy lifestyle.”

Yet, somehow, a skinny black kid was able to beat poor boxing George within an inch of his life, so his only chance of survival was to blow him away.

Looks to be more of a financial ting than a racist thing. Looks as if the headline writer added the “even black people”. I mean,,,”willing to fightANYONE” would include that, no
He’s most likely un-employable so he s to take any opportunity to make money

re: #1 Skip Intro

iirc, Zims boxing “coach” stated he had no discernible skills in the ring

It’s right there in the excerpt.

Prospective challengers are urged to contact promoters by email at fightgeorge@hotmail.com, and promoter Damon Feldman said Zimmerman would be willing to fight a black person.

makes sense to announce that from a promotional standpoint

What do you think would garner more PPV hits

Zimmerman vs (lets say) Danny Bonaduce

OR

Zimmerman vs (lets say) some middling black athlete or entertainer?

Zim gets the cash ,, the athlete/ entertainer gets fee publicity

That we’ve made this guy into a celebrity is truly pathetic. I don’t think it’s racial really but shows what a pathetic ass he is.

Agree

But the alternative may be that he goes on the public dole!
I would rather see him make money getting his as kicked or becoming a sideshow than knowing my tax dollars are supporting him

Again, he’s basically unemployable

re: #5 sattv4u2

I’d like to know what Zimmerman’s take from this will be, and what the rules will be.

I agree that fighting a Trayvon Martin stand-in will boost the take. I just wonder if Zimmerman is willing to have the crap beaten out of him for the money, or if there’s going to be a weasel clause allowing him to resign the first time he gets hit.

No matter how it goes, he’s not getting a penny of my money for this stunt.

Nor mine

But again, he doesn’t have many alternatives career wise, so, it’s either something like this OR public assistance.

This should really go well.

11 sizzzzlerz  Fri, Jan 31, 2014 8:39:23am

My god, he’s turning into Danny Bonaduce!

12 BusyMonster  Fri, Jan 31, 2014 8:43:29am

It would almost be worth it to train up and beat his ass square, but I wouldn’t be interested in contributing to his pathetic career.

Ya know I really despise prize fighting. But if I could donate my winning dollars to a charity of my choice, I’d love to be the 50 something white guy that puts him down a couple rounds in a row.

Judging from his already amply-displayed cowardice, just about anybody with a functioning pair could easily own him.

Paging Mike Tyson. Mike Tyson please meet your party at the ring.

Even black people? Without a gun? They will have the lightest puffy gloves and headgear and shorts up to his chin. What’s the PPV going to be called? “Hey, Suckers?”

Oh, yeah, definitely not a racist thing. No way….

Now there’s the perfect name for Zimmerman should he ever decide to incorporate.

I hope Zimmerman realizes there’s a difference between “boxing” and “punching someone in a street fight.”

In any case I hope he gets his butt handed to him.

If there was any chance of that, Zimmerman wouldn’t do it. He’s a chickenshit coward with a big mouth and a bigger ego.

re: #19 Eclectic Cyborg

Well, his lame-ass lie about being punched in the face ought to tell any serious fighter what he was really about. If you’ve seen the real deal, you know nobody just casually walks off a good punch to the face … you can’t see or concentrate through all the blood. So, no, I don’t think Zimmy has a clue what he’s about to get into. There’s not going to be a fucking pistol in his pocket for when his pride gets ripped out of his hands and smeared all over the floor.

Except the part you bolded isn’t actually a quote. The quote is:

“We’re not looking at it as a race thing,” Feldman said. “We haven’t discussed purple, yellow, white, black.”

Which sounds to me like the reporter asked a question about race. It’s a writer trying to sensationalize the story.
