Right now, the version you are looking for, is available at rawhide repository only. Rawhide is a special repository for testing proposes only. It is not recommended for production systems, but is intended for testing packages for bugs and problems, before they pushed to the stable release. Read more about rawhide here.

Now, you can use a "trick" and install this package only, from rawhide repository. Do not install any other package, and be aware to not upgrade the whole system from rawhide, because you will end up with a completely testing and unstable system.

If you follow the instructions below, I think you will be ok.

sudo yum install fedora-release-rawhide

above command will install the approrpiate repo files, but it will not enable the repository (so you are safe).

Now you can do

sudo yum install git --enablerepo=rawhide

above command will enable the rawhide repository once, and it will install the git package (and all its dependencies) from the rawhide repository. After this action, the repository will remain disabled (and you are safe again).

If you encountering errors during the installation, try again later, because rawhide repositories are not very stable, mirrors can get corrupted, but after a while are back again.
