Lenny Dykstra is on record claiming that Jose Canseco ruined his career.
On Saturday, the former baseball sluggers will have a chance to take their swings inside the boxing ring in a celebrity bout.
Tareq Salahi, who was one of the White House party crashers, was originally slated to fight Canseco.
"Canseco ruined my career by spreading lies. I called Tareq and begged him to let me take his place in the upcoming fight against Canseco," Dykstra said in statement.
The event will take place at the Avalon Hollywood in California.
Both baseball players are tied heavily into baseball's infamous steroid era.
Canseco, 47, admitted in a pair of tell-all books about his steroid use while the 48-year-old Dykstra was named in the Mitchell Report for the use of steroids and other performance-enhancing substances.

If I asked you to name the two biggest former MLB All-Stars turned disaster in retirement, your answer would inevitably be Jose Canseco and Lenny Dykstra.
