If I asked you to name the two biggest former MLB All-Stars turned disaster in retirement, your answer would inevitably be Jose Canseco and Lenny Dykstra.
Jose wrote a book and exposed the steroids problem in MLB. He tried to get into reality television, made a second career in celebrity boxing, got evicted, and became an independent league baseball coach.
Dykstra was heralded as an investing genius during the stock market’s peak. When the market collapsed, so did he. He lost his house, his car wash business, and he was accused of sexually harassing women.
If you could pick two sports figures to fight in a boxing match, this would be it. Dykstra and Canseco are scheduled to fight in Hollywood on Saturday, November 5th. They’ll be part of a celebrity boxing event shown on FilmOn.com. The entire fight card for the night is actually pretty enticing, if not pathetic:
- Jose Canseco Vs Lenny Dykstra
Joey Buttafuco Vs Lou Ballera
Nadya “Octomom” Suleman Vs Amy Fisher
Coolio Vs Jeremy Jackson
Tareq Salahi Vs Kato Kaelin
Michelle “Bombshell” McGee Vs Violet Kowal
Tila Tequila Vs TBA
I’ve never hit a girl in my life, but if they don’t fill that TBA spot, I’d be happy to step in.Google+
