Group Tries to Stop Zimmerman DMX Boxing Match

One group is trying to put a stop to George Zimmerman's upcoming celebrity boxing match.

Zimmerman is the neighborhood watchman found not guilty of killing teen Trayvon Martin in Florida.

A petition has been posted on the White House's petition page calling for the bout's cancellation.  

According to the document, the entire idea of the event is to "use racial tensions to lure people" into purchasing tickets.  

The petition also claims that celebrity boxing promoter Damon Feldman "has been known for fixing fights" and "bypassing state requirements" to obtain fighters' licenses.  

So far, the petition has more than 5,000 signatures.
