SANFORD, Fla. (CNN) -George Zimmerman is back in the news.

He's now planning to fight in a boxing ring for charity.

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

You may remember that Zimmerman was acquitted in the shooting death of unarmed teen Trayvon Martin.

Right now, Zimmerman does not have an opponent, but finding one may not be too difficult.

According to CNN, the promoter of the match said that he has received more than 8,000 emails from people who want to fight Zimmerman.

The fight will be on pay-per-view and scheduled for March 1st.
