I guess the only action would be on how long it takes for the KO. I'll say halfway through the 2nd round (because I imagine DMX will want to drag it out a bit).

edit: then again, it being boxing - and celebrity boxing, at that - it could go several rounds to milk the entertainment value. It's a tough call (except for the GZ getting his ass beaten part, which should be a foregone conclusion).

I want to see GZ win. Not because I like the guy or think he didn't do anything wrong in the Trayvon killing, but I just want to see mainstream America's head explode when he lands a cleanhook to DMX and DMX goes goes down in a heap. There'd be something so core about that.

DMX is 43 and GZ 30.

DMX has spent a good chunk of the last decade addicted to crack (clean about 18 months). DMX also has a very small frame ( http://factmag-images.s3.amazonaws.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/09/dmx-9.25.2013-367x195.jpg ). I doubt he's able to bench 100lbs. He's 5 foot 11.

Zimmerman, on the other hand, is 5 foot 7 and 185lbs. He's quite fat.

Assuming both are starting to train seriously now, and both from a starting point of candyass, GZ clearly has the advantage as he's much younger and doesn't have a history of inhaling crack.

Not exactly battle of the titans. GZ may actually have the edge.

That's too bad, I was sincerely looking forward to the ridiculousness (as if the world needs more).

It was asanine to begin with. It would have solved NOTHING. And it would have been a mockery of a tragic event. The timing of the announcement isn't coincidental which tells you how much the promoters feel about the event. It shouldn't have been proposed in the first place and DMX or game or whomever shouldn't have been trying to participate.
