If the rapper The Game has his way, he will "beat the f**k out of" George Zimmerman in the ring come March, TMZ is reporting.

Zimmerman, 30, has officially agreed to participate in a March 1 celebrity-boxing match, though the final decision as to whom will be his opponent remains to be decided and is up to the match’s promoter Damon Feldman. He plans to donate any earnings from the boxing match to charity, according to ABC Action News.

The Game, however, is hoping to fight for a different cause. He's eager to show Zimmerman that altercations can be dealt with sans weapons.

"I would not be boxing for me. I'd be boxing for the legacy of Trayvon Martin and for his family," the rapper, who is 6'5", 240lbs, told TMZ. "I will beat the f**k out of him."

In July 2013, Zimmerman was acquitted of all charges in relation to the fatal shooting of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, a ruling that sparked nationwide protests and fueled anger over race-relations in the judicial system.

Weeks after the verdict, The Game paid a tribute to the slain teen with a leg tattoo of a copy of the widely circulated black and white photograph of Martin in a hoodie.

Whether or not The Game will get to face Zimmerman in the bout and get his version of justice remains to be determined.
