DMX Drops Out Of Celebrity Boxing Match

DMX Drops Out Of Celebrity Boxing Match

    According to multiple reports, DMX has withdrawn himself from an upcoming celebrity boxing match next month against fighter Eric Martinez, who managed DMX at one point. It's not known why but multiple sources have given their thoughts on why the rapper might not want to box. One source said DMX pulled out of the fight because his safety could not be guaranteed, while another claimed that the rapper backed out because Thunder Promotions refused his request to "fix" the fight.

    Previously DMX talked about his anticipation to fight at the event during a radio interview last month. "We got a phone call asking if I wanted to participate in it," X said about how the opportunity presented itself. "I'm just gonna walk in as it is man, you know what I mean? It wouldn't be fair if I trained. I think it's three two-minute rounds…[My opponent] is shorter than me and I think he weighs a little more than me. I'm 175, six feet. I got a little build on me, you know what I'm saying? I've seen him, yeah I've seen him. He's a nice guy — when I agreed to it, I didn't know it was gonna be him…I'm going to pick one of my own songs [to walk out with.] 'What's My Name.' I'm in the studio everyday banging joints out — I got the pens and the paper. [New album] hopefully first quarter." [DMX Talks About His Celebrity Boxing Match – Listen Here]
