West Coast rapper Game is ready to put up a fight after offering his services for a celebrity face-off against notorious ex-neighborhood watch worker George Zimmerman.
Game said his interest in fighting Zimmerman would solely stem from loyalty to slain teenager Trayvon Martin.
The Game will throw his hat in the ring to fight George Zimmerman in the upcoming celebrity boxing match, and he tells TMZ, “I will beat the f**k out of him.” Zimmerman has agreed to the March 1 celebrity boxing match … the promoter hasn’t selected his opponent, but is taking offers at [email protected] Game says, “I would not be boxing for me. I’d be boxing for the legacy of Trayvon Martin and for his family.” (TMZ)
Not only would Game knuckle up but he promised a flawless victory.
The rapper, who has a tattoo of Trayvon on his leg, says, “I would box him to knock him out,” adding, “I would definitely take pleasure in it. It’s legal, and I want to show him you can solve your disputes without a weapon.” Game would definitely have the edge … he’s 6’5″, and 240 lbs of muscle. (TMZ)
Last month, 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”)
Details and footage of Game’s gesture landed online back in mid-August.
The trial is over, the verdict was reached, but that doesn’t mean Trayvon Martin’s name, face and story will fade into oblivion – at least not if rapper The Game has his way. As a father of three, The Game was one of the personalities who was very vocal about his support for the justice of Trayvon Martin during the trial and the months leading up to it, but he’s made his dedication to keep Trayvon’s legacy alive a bit more permanent now. The ink-faced rapper recently paid a visit to Roman Tattoos in Hollywood and brought Trayvon’s infamous hooded photo to life with a black and white tattoo on his lower leg. The Game Instagrammed his new ink addition with a split-screen of the photo we have all come to know: Trayvon with a heather gray hoodie slightly draped over his head, with a caption that read: “After 7 hours sleep…. @romantattoos woke me up & my #TrayvonMartin tat is finito… FOLLOW the homie@romantattoos & get on his calendar now !!!!!!!!!#JusticeForTrayvon” (Global Grind)
