George Zimmerman willing to fight anyone during celebrity boxing match

Apparently George Zimmerman has decided that he isn't going to make it as a painter, so now he is going to try his hand at being a boxer.

According to TMZ, Zimmerman has inked a deal to take part in a celebrity boxing match although there are some people who might question whether or not Zimmerman is a celebrity.

Zimmerman was the focus of one of the most-watched trials in recent years after he was accused of killing a 17-year-old black teenager named Trayvon Martin.

For those who protested his acquittal, it hasn't helped that he has done everything but keep a low profile since the case ended.

He has been hit with multiple assault charges against his ex-wife and current girlfriend and stopped for speeding more than once.

Zimmerman has reportedly said that he is willing to fight anyone, including an African-American.

Zimmerman told Radar Online in an exclusive interview that he took on boxing as a hobby "prior to the incident."

The celebrity boxing match is scheduled to take place March 1, and will air online and on pay-per-view.
