Well after news broke yesterday (November 6th) that DMX might be dropping out of his celebrity boxing match, a representative for the rapper has come forward to address the claims. According to DMX's manager, Nakia Waker, the original plans called for the fight to be staged. "Event Promoter and Management agree that [DMX] is scheduled to win
Boxing Challenge." Walker also added a line to an addendum for the contract which read, "All parties
agree this event has been scheduled to occur only in fun and that the
artist involved is not a professional boxer."
The fight promoters, Thunder Promotions, refused to sign the addendum, claiming they never agreed to fix anything. Now, DMX is threatening to back out and the promoters are looking for someone to replace the rapper while they also prepare a lawsuit for breach of contract. DMX's rep tells us the rapper really does want to fight — rigged or not — but she's forcing his hand because "he's a hip hop artist, not a boxer."
