DMX Set To Box Ex Business Partner

DMX Set To Box Ex Business Partner

    Now that he's out of prison and hanging out with other rappers at the Hip Hop Honors event, DMX plans to knock out a album person. DMX is set to fight Eric Martinez as part of a fight night that also includes Butterbean taking on Tank Abbott. So how did this all come about? "Well, the promoters reached out and wanted to see if they can set up a celebrity fight between myself and DMX. It was just real simple. I heard that Busta Rhymes was actually the original opponent they were trying to get for DMX," Eric Martinez says.

    Once the news hit that DMX was going to be fighting Martinez, fans quickly thought it was a fake fight since X and Martinez had worked together in the past, even stating Eric managed X. "My company has actually done some work with him in the past as far as branding and promoting," Martinez says. "We've done some stuff in the past [with DMX]. But that has nothing to do with this. I'm not his manager. Awhile back there was a press release that said I was part of the management team."
