The Game prepared for Zimmerman smackdown

The Game

The Game would love to face infamous acquitted child murderer George Zimmerman in a boxing match.

George is infamous for shooting 17-year-old African American teenager Trayvon Martin dead, and he was acquitted on murder charges last summer.

And now that George has agreed to taking part in a celebrity boxing match, The Game is hoping he will be selected as his opponent.

"I will beat the f**k out of him,” the 34-year-old rapper told TMZ.

Many Americans were outraged by the jury’s verdict in favour of George, as many people believe the racially charged crime deserved imprisonment.

The Game shares these sentiments, and the muscular musician thinks his fists would bring justice.

"I would not be boxing for me. I'd be boxing for the legacy of Trayvon Martin and for his family,” he explained.

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

George’s celebrity boxing match will take place on March 1, but his opponent has not yet been officially selected.

Many Hollywood A-listers have vocalised their thoughts on the loss of Trayvon and most were outraged.

Stevie Wonder hosted a protest against the state of Florida’s gun laws and Jay-Z attended a rally in honour of the teenager with his wife Beyoncé Knowles.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Virgo:

Read the fine print on a contract. If you're not happy with the proposed terms of a deal, renegotiate. Don't be afraid to drive a hard bargain. You may not realise it, but you have a great deal of power. People are willing to pay good money for someone with your intelligence and experience. If you undersell yourself, you will set a dangerous precedent. Someone will ask you to do something that goes against your conscience. Obey your principles, even if it means making an enemy.More
