This will be a big weekend for all of Jose Canseco’s combat sports fans. Apparerntly he has recovered from a recent knee injury, because this Friday he is set to return to the boxing ring. His opponent is five-time Wing Bowl champion Bill “El Wingador” Simmons.
Canseco, who holds a combined boxing and MMA record of 0-2-1, will be looking for his first ever win. In his most recent bout, Canseco was stopped in only 77 seconds by Hong Man Choi. Before entering MMA, he was stopped in boxing by Vai Sikahema and drew with Danny Bonaduce. Apparently retired football players and child stars were too tough, so let’s see how the former American League MVP fares against a competitive eater.
The Celebrity Boxing website says, they are waiting to announce the undercard until “reality-show rejects are added.”
