Jose Canseco, boxer

I guess those two books he "wrote" didn't sell enough: former baseball player and steroid user Jose Canseco has reportedly joined the world of celebrity boxing. Canseco's having financial troubles, including two divorces and a foreclosure on his home, so he's hooked up with a local promoter. They're looking for someone to fight Canseco at a minor league baseball park in Atlantic City in July. The opponent will be paid $5,000. That probably isn't enough to entice the baseball players Canseco snitched on in his books, most of whom undoubtedly would love to punch his lights out. -- Joe Guckin
