This can’t be life.

According to TMZ, DMX has agreed to fight George Zimmerman in his upcoming celebrity boxing match. Boxing promoter Damon Feldman told the website that X was selected out of 15,000 applicants of possible opponents.

Previously, the New York native said “I am going to beat the living f**k out him … I am breaking every rule in boxing to make sure I f**k him right up.” Initially, Zimmerman wanted to fight Kanye West and The Game also stepped up to the challenge. The boxing match will be 3 rounds, but X is at a notable disadvantage. He is 43 and Zimmerman, 30.

The date, time, and location of the fight will be announced at a news conference next Wednesday.
