Jose Canseco to Fight Wing-Eating Legend

New, comments
You would have to really work to find new ways for Jose Canseco to embarrass himself. After all, he was KO'd by Vai Sikahema, fought to a draw against former child star/perpetual train wreck Danny Bonaduce and most recently got pummeled by a 7-foot-2 Korean kickboxer. ↵

↵But it's Canseco, and he always finds new and interesting ways to embarrass himself. Here's his latest, which will have him going back from MMA to boxing: ↵

↵⇥Five-time Wing Bowl champion Bill "El Wingador" Simmons will take on Jose Canseco July 24 at a venue to be determined, in Damon Feldman's Celebrity Boxing 10. ↵
↵

↵Now I know what you're thinking: "Chris, what amazing athletic feat is this 'Wing Bowl' you speak of?" Oh, it's this. Yes, chicken-wing eating contestants. Those are the true champions Jose Canseco now faces. On the plus side, at least Canseco might have finally found an opponent he can actually defeat. ↵

↵

↵And if you're wondering to yourself what sort of high standards were set in previous Celebrity Boxing Federation fights, consider that Celebrity Boxing 9 consisted of a headliner between Lindsay Lohan's father, Michael, and some guy from Survivor named Jonny Fairplay. ↵

↵

↵Oh, and Sugar Ray Leonard Jr. is part of this organization, too. I'm sure pops is really proud. ↵
