The promoter behind George Zimmerman's celebrity boxing match has decided to cancel the event today. Damon Feldman tweeted an apology to the people he hurt by trying to put the fight together, and explained that by changing his mind now, he has lost millions of dollars and the possibility of making more money down the line. While Zimmerman did not have an opponent for the fight confirmed yet, it appeared as though DMX was the primary option. Zimmerman had previously called out Kanye West also.

Zimmerman has yet to comment on the news of the cancellation. DMX's publicist has issued the following statement:

"Damon Feldman has announced that the George Zimmerman fight is cancelled via his Twitter. As previously stated, DMX never agreed to the fight and we thank you for all of the support from DMX's fans. This situation will not affect any of DMX's upcoming concerts in America or around the world."

UPDATE: As if this situation couldn't have gotten more confusing, promoter Damon Feldman has deleted his tweets regarding the Zimmerman fight from earlier today and instead has announced a press conference for Tuesday where he will issue his "final decision."
