On what would have been Trayvon Martin‘s 19th birthday, WAOK and its sister station V-103 are joining the fight to stop the highly publicized “celebrity boxing match” between the onetime neighborhood watch volunteer who shot and killed Martin – George Zimmerman – and troubled, multimillion-selling rapper DMX.

A petition began circulating February 2 to block Zimmerman (who was acquitted of Martin’s murder) and fight promoter Damon Feldman from profiting from the loss of Martin, the ensuing racial tension and the notoriety Zimmerman has garnered since the 2012 death many perceive as an injustice hit the global stage.

It was announced today that negotiations have begun to make the boxing match a reality, however WAOK and V-103 need your help in making sure that what the stations perceive as an insult to the late Martin’s memory never occurs.

You can view and sign the petition HERE – and please spread the word on Twitter to #STOPTHEFIGHT!
