DMX to fight George Zimmerman in boxing match

FRESNO, California

But a spokesman for DMX says while the rapper has promised -- in more colorful language -- to beat Zimmerman in a bout, no contract has been signed.

According to the rep, "DMX will release an official statement if and when an agreement is made."

Zimmerman, who was acquitted last year of murder in the death of /*Trayvon Martin*/ -- says the celebrity boxing match was his idea.
