Jose Canceso‘s record as a celebrity boxer currently sits at 1-2-1, including a knockout loss to Vai Sikahema, a decision loss to a 60-year-old man, a tough draw against Danny Partridge, and a win (finally) against Todd Poulton, self-described as “The Heavyweight Champion of OCD.”
We’d say that the former baseball star’s next match offers him a shot at redemption, but considering his opponent, he’ll look like a loser even if he wins it. Canseco is booked to appear at a Celebrity Fight Night event on November 5th against Tareq Salahi, best known as the “White House party crasher” whose wife Michaele is a total whore.
During a recent face-off in Beverly Hills, Salahi confronted the crowd with a five-year-old photo of Canseco with Michaele, which skeevy promoter Alki David presented to the media in the front row with obvious glee. “I’m fighting for anybody who’s against cheating, be in my corner, and I’m gonna take Jose down,” Salahi said.
When it came for the traditional fists-up photo-op, Salahi was still harping on the photo thing, and the two had to be separated. The moment seemed obviously staged, and you have to feel embarrassed for everybody involved. Salahi is seriously trying to ride his fame as the Ultimate Cuckold? Canseco is reduced to beating up guys like that for a paycheck? Actually, I don’t feel bad for Alki David; his life seems pretty rad.
The November 5th Celebrity Fight Night card will also feature three cast-members from the last season of Celebrity Rehab. (Keep up the great work, Dr. Drew.) The lineup is below. You can watch the action live on pay-per-view at FilmOn.
