George Zimmerman has agreed to enter the ring and participate in a celebrity boxing match, but his opponent has not yet been selected, a source told WKMG-TV.

Zimmerman, who the source said has been more interested lately in boxing than guns, reportedly said that he would fight anyone.

Celebrity boxing promoter Damon Feldman, who offered Zimmerman money to step into the ring, said he is not looking at race as the determining factor for an opponent.
