Game has offered to "beat the f---" out of George Zimmerman.  

Zimmerman, who was acquitted last year of murdering 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, agreed to participate in a March 1 celebrity boxing match put on by promoter Damon Feldman. 

An opponent hasn't been chosen for the bout, but Game will gladly get the job done. "I will beat the f**k out of him," the "Celebration" rapper told TMZ. "It would not be boxing for me. I'd be boxing for the legacy of Trayvon Martin and for his family."

Martin was killed in Feb. 2012 following a fatal run-in with the former neighborhood watch captain. Zimmerman maintains that he shot the unarmed high school student in self defense. 

Since the acquittal, Zimmerman hasn't been keeping much of a low profile. The 30-year-old has had a few incidents involving the law, including an arrest for allegedly assaulting his girlfriend. The charges were later dropped.

He agreed to the boxing match as another way of earning money, and because of his love for the sport. "Boxing isn't new to me," Zimmerman shared with Radar Online. "It's something I had picked up well before the incident and it's something that I liked, I enjoyed." 

Meanwhile, Game wants to go up against Zimmerman to teach him a lesson. "I would box him to knock him out," explained Game. "I would definitely take pleasure in it. It's legal, and I want to show him you can solve your disputes without a weapon." is your #1 source for Black celebrity news, photos, exclusive videos and all the latest in the world of hip hop and R&B music.
