A spokesman for DMX, right, says the rapper never agreed to a boxing with George Zimmerman.

A publicity-stunt boxing match is no more.

The much hyped and even more divisive bout between DMX and acquitted Trayvon Martin killer George Zimmerman has been called off, according to the promoter.

“This was the wrong person to put in the ring and define celebrity boxing,” Damon Feldman said Saturday on Twitter, referring to Zimmerman. He said he was scrapping plans because “I’d rather be happy and make people happy.”

The DMX camp, meanwhile, was putting its own spin on the cancellation, suggesting DMX had second thoughts. “The George Zimmerman fight is canceled,” DMX spokesman Domenick Nati said in a statement Saturday. “DMX never agreed to the fight and we thank you for all of the support from DMX’s fans.”
