(NEW YORK) — George Zimmerman has found himself in another fight.

The infamous neighborhood watch captain, acquitted in the murder of Florida teenager Trayvon Martin last year, will meet rapper DMX in the boxing ring for a televised Celebrity Boxing match.

Zimmerman reportedly reached out to Damon Feldman, owner of Celebrity Boxing, to signal his interest in a high-stakes bout. More than 15,000 people applied to square off against the man who killed Martin, but Feldman selected 43-year-old rapper DMX.

During Zimmerman’s trial mixed martial arts trainer Adam Pollock testified that he trained Zimmerman for about a year in 2011. Pollack gave the court an assessment of Zimmerman’s fighting abilities.

“Just physically soft,” Pollock said. “He’s not a — you know, he was an overweight, large man when he came to us, and a very, very pleasant, very nice man, but physically soft. He was predominantly fat. Not a lot of muscle. Not a lot of strength.”

DMX says he already plans to fight dirty, and beat the “living f*** out of him.”
