A very heated conversation has been happening on social media this week about the possible boxing match between George Zimmerman and Rapper DMX.
Saturday on New Day Weekend, celebrity boxing promoter Damon Feldman defended the fight as "purely entertainment."
You can watch that conversation with Victor Blackwell above.
Since that interview, Feldman sent a statement to CNN to announce he is calling off the fight, saying, in part:
"... Too much racial tension, it was hurting too many people... that's just not the direction I want to go... I don't care how much money I could have made on this."
Feldman also said he will hold a press conference on Thursday, February 13.
