The boxing promoter behind the George Zimmerman and DMX fight may not be pulling the plug on the event after all. The match was scheduled to go down on March 15, but due to pressure from critics, Damon Feldman announced on Saturday that he would be scrapping the event.
That all changed on Sunday morning when Feldman took to Facebook to post this message with his followers:
“I will have Press conference this tuesday to talk about the Celebrity Boxing Event and my decisions with what is next here!”
If the event was over, there would be “what is next here,” so perhaps Feldman is going to go through with it despite the uproar. Over 100,000 people signed a petition urging Damon to scrap the fight because they felt it celebrated George Zimmerman, a man who shot and killed a teenager, Trayvon Martin.
HipHollywood has reached out to Damon for comment. We’ll keep you posted.
Review: ‘Kingsman: The Golden Circle’ Is Bigger & Better Than The First
If you liked Kingsman:The Secret Service, get ready for The Golden Circle. Hands downs this Kingsman is bigger, badder and better than the first.
Director Matthew Vaughn really takes it up a notch and gives fans much more action and fight sequences. Right off the top we see Eggsy (Taron Egerton) in this amazing car chase scene that will have you applauding as soon as the Prince track ends.
And while we’re talking music the film has an amazing sound track. And if you didnt know, Elton John is also in the film acting and singing some of his classic tunes.
What I also loved were the new editions. Channing Tatum, Halle Berry, Jeff Bridges and Pedro Pascal who play the Statesmen – the American version of the Kingsman – and the dynamic between the two is pretty comical. Vaughn really explores the difference between the two cultures – mannered men in suits versus macho men in jeans and cowboy boots.
Then there’s Julianne Moore who plays the villain, she’s like this maniacal Martha Stewart esque drug lord and she’s quite good at it.
Now there are some obnoxious moments (like that sex scene between Egerton and Poppy Delevigne). But I think that’s the point. This franchise is all about turning the spy genre on it’s head and introducing the younger generation to a new type of Bond flick … And we think they are going to love it.
