Notorious celebrity George Zimmerman is reportedly up for taking on rap star Game in a one-on-one match despite a promoter's recent claims.
According to celebrity promoter Damon Feldman, Zimmerman is preparing for the fight of his life.
But according to Damon Feldman, the promoter of the event who has 55 celebrity boxing matches under his belt via his Celebrity Boxing Federation (CBF), George Zimmerman believes Game is the best opponent. "He [George Zimmerman] is open to any challengers that make sense, but he is training hard and he said 'Game is the perfect opponent,'" Damon Feldman told AllHipHop.com in an exclusive interview.

Coincidentally, Damon recently said he had rejected Game's initial offer but revealed Zimmerman was up for facing-off against ex-Def Jam rapper DMX.
The Game just came on TMZ Live and formally accepted the challenge to fight George Zimmerman in the ring ... but the promoter hedged, saying although Game is a front-runner, there are more than 4,700 others who want a piece of Zimmerman. The Game scoffed at promoter Damon Feldman, who said Zimmerman would be a tough opponent because he's been heavy into boxing training. Game -- who's 6'5" and 240 lbs -- predicts a quick knockout. Damon says Zimmerman has agreed to fight DMX ... and he says he'll make a decision in a few days for the March 1 fight. (TMZ)
A couple days ago, Game said his interest in fighting Zimmerman would solely stem from loyalty to slain teenager Trayvon Martin.

I'd be boxing for the legacy of Trayvon Martin and for his family." (TMZ)
In December, Game said Tray's mother reached out and acknowledged his decision to get a tattoo of her son.
"Yeah, that one's on my leg. It's hard to get up because of these jeans," Game told host Arsenio Hall. "I got him in a hoody. It's just the picture that everybody knows. It's him in a hoody. I actually got a text message from his mom, which is cool. She appreciated the gesture. And, you know, I get tattoos all the time and that was just that whole story. I got a kid and I just thought that was so unfortunate, so I did it." ("Arsenio")
