Who Do You Want To Box George Zimmerman?

DETROIT (97.1 THE TICKET) – Zimmerman’s plans to enter the ring come after he successfully capitalized on his celebrity in December by auctioning a flag painting on eBay, selling the artwork for just over $100,000 notes an article from Reuters dot com.

“Boxing isn’t new to me,” Zimmerman told Radar Online in an article posted on the celebrity news outlet’s website last week.

Zimmerman began boxing long before the February 2012 incident with 17-year-old Martin that drew national attention, he told Radar Online.

The case polarized the nation around issues of racial justice, self defense and gun control.
