UPDATE: Promoter has apparently canceled the fight
George Zimmerman will fight rapper DMX in an upcoming online pay-per-view boxing match.
The celebrity was picked out of a pool of 1,500 applicants, according to the fight's promoter Damon Feldman.
The three-round bout had been scheduled for March 1, but Feldman says a new date will be announced next Wednesday.
DMX says he's out for blood.
Zimmerman, who was found not guilty of second-degree murder and manslaughter for killing 17-year-old Trayvon Martin back in 2012, says he's been training hard for the match.
