Quitters never win! It appears as though DMX has already given up on being a boxing champ and will not go toe-to-toe with New Mexico based fighter Eric Martinez. The rapper was scheduled to get in the ring with Martinez in Alabama on Dec. 12, but sources close to the matter reportedly told Allhiphop.com that the fight has been canceled.

Sources claim X pulled out because he wanted the event's sponsor Thunder Promotions to "fix" the fight. It has also been reported that Thunder Promotions may take legal action against X. However, there appears to be a silver lining for the promotion company as other rappers have been contacted to take his place. Stay tuned for the replacement announcement next week.
