Lenny Dykstra No Shows Boxing Match Against Jose Canseco, Surprises Nobody

Jose Canseco and Lenny Dykstra were scheduled to have a boxing match over the weekend. In a Battle of the Crazies, the pay-per-view bout was filled with bad blood. Dykstra hates Canseco for writing in his book that he did steroids. It’s no surprise then that Canseco’s opponent was switched from White House crasher Tareq Salahi.

In his last “fight,” Canseco actually switched places with his twin brother, Ozzie. It’s an ingenious move that I haven’t seen since Doink the Clown did it at Wrestlemania IX, but apparently Canseco and promoter Damon Feldman worked things out. Feldman gave Dykstra $5,000 in advance with the promise of $10,000 after the fight.

Too bad he didn’t know Dykstra’s current residence is a Los Angeles rehab facility. Don’t know how much training he was doing in there. Plus, who has time when you’re making hundreds of millions of dollars picking stocks? Sucks if you were one of the 12 people that paid to see the fight.
