Extry, Extry: Lenny Dykstra To Fight Jose Canseco

Breaking news from WPVI-TV Philadelphia’s Jeff Skversky:

As much as this just sounds like Lenny Dykstra is canceling his autograph session to have a street fight with Jose Canseco (which I imagine would go something like this), this fight is going to be something far more civilized: boxing.

Canseco has already begun a career in MMA, but it hasn’t gone well. Dykstra doesn’t have a boxing or MMA career that I can find, but he is “fighting for his good name:

Lenny is fighting for his good name in baseball. Lenny’s life for the last two years has been upside down mainly because of snitches. Canseco is one of the many rats that have diminished Dykstra’s career.

Because, you know, that’ll help.

As far as the actual fight goes, I’ll take the 6’4″, 240 pound Canseco over the 5’10”, 167 pound Dykstra.

Although, to present a counterargument: Nails. Can’t bet against Nails.

    We can’t underestimate the power of insanity here. Canseco may have some fighting skill, but many people with mediocre fighting skills require the other person to be attempting a “clean” fight to use them correctly. I’m sure Dykstra has no particular skills and will be an unrepentant ball of crazy.

    Didn’t Conseco get knocked out right away in one of his mma fights?

    Dykstra’s going to kick Steroid Boy’s ass because he’s probably been in a couple of dozen street fights and won them all. Canseco’s roided-up, but he doesn’t know how to fight.

    Awesome. I really hope they air this as a special on MLBN and Harold Reynolds is the lead announcer.
