SANFORD, Fla. -- George Zimmerman is planning to fight in a boxing ring for charity, WFTV found out.

Zimmerman told Radar Online that he's agreed to participate in a "celebrity" boxing match.

Zimmerman was acquitted in the shooting death of unarmed Florida teen Trayvon Martin.

As of now, Zimmerman doesn't have an opponent, but finding one may not be too difficult.

The promoter of the celebrity boxing match told CNN he has had about 8,000 emails from people who want in.

Zimmerman won't be getting paid for the fight.

It will take place at an undisclosed location and will be streamed live online on pay-per-view.

The fight is scheduled for March 1.

.... Disgusting. Absolutely disgusting. Action News, please don't contribute to making this attention whore any bigger by bothering with news reports about him. I am sure there are far more interesting news stories going on in our fair city that would be of greater interest to the population than yet another attention-whoring attempt by poor excuse for a human being who just so happened to beat a murder charge. Seriously. More relevant news items, please.
