Found November 07, 2011 on With Leather:
Last week we shared with you the news that turd-mouthed ex-ballplayer Lenny Dykstra would be taking the place of White House party crasher Tareq Salahi in an upcoming Celebrity Boxing match with Jose Canseco. “Canseco ruined my career by spreading lies,” said Dykstra in a statement. “I called Tareq and begged him to let me take his place in the upcoming fight against Canseco.” Well, as it turns out, Canseco wasn’t the only person spreading lies. Somewhere between that statement and last night’s “Battle of the Baseball Bad Boys” (their name, not mine) Dykstra pulled out of the fight, and he might’ve pocketed $5,000 of the promoter’s cash before doing so. This is where the story gets very Sports By Brooks, so try to stay with me. From the Philadelphia Inquirer, by way of The Hall Of Very Good: (Fight promoter Damon) Feldman said moments ago that he and main promoter Alki David met Dykstra on Thursday and paid him cash. The former Phillies star was to receive another $10,000 after...

Dykstra backs out of Canseco fight?

Nails bails: Dykstra a no-show for bout with Canseco

Lenny Dykstra was a no-show for his celebrity boxing match with fellow former major-leaguer Jose Canseco. The reasoning for his absence for Saturday's bout - perhaps not surprisingly - is somewhat clouded. The Philadelphia Inquirer reported that Dykstra believed that he was never scheduled to fight. The newspaper cited a conversation with Dykstra's long-time friend John...

Lenny Dykstra Skips Fight With Jose Canseco, Denies Agreeing to Fight in First Place

Former major leaguers Lenny Dykstra and Jose Canseco were expected to fight on Saturday night in a pay-per-view "Celebrity Fight Night" event. But Dykstra didn't show up to trade blows with Canseco.

Lenny Dykstra Pulls out of Canseco Fight, Might Not Have Ever Been Scheduled

Lenny Dykstra ******* Out, Pulls a No-Show in Jose Canseco Boxing Match

As I'm sure you are aware, Jose Canseco's brain has almost completely melted due to repeated steroid use and advanced egomania. However, he has just enough brain cells left to hit other fighters, random celebrities, and former ballplayers in the face during what could be referred to as "MMA" bouts. A match between the former Bash Brother and everyone's...

Nails bails: Lenny Dykstra a no show for fight against Canseco

It turns out that you and I weren't the only ones who forgot about the Lenny Dykstra-Jose Canseco fight on Saturday night after gaping at the car wreck of a headline earlier this week. Also suffering a memory lapse? Ol' Nails himself as Dykstra failed to show up for his whuppin' at the pay-per view event. So was Dykstra too busy watching the field goal kicking contest...

Lenny Dykstra Is A Bigger Dickhead Than Jose Canseco, Somehow

So everybody was all excited about the Jose Canseco-Lenny Dykstra boxing match that was to take place on Saturday night. People cancelling Alabama-LSU plans every which way you look. America was so ******* prepared to see a tobacco-chomping MLB has-been take on a needle-in--the ass-24/7 MLB has-been that can't read. This is the title bout boxing's been missing since the...

Just When I Thought It Couldn’t Get Any Worse….

Do you know how hard it is to make Jose Canseco look good? Do you know how f$cking hard it is to do something like that? Ask Lenny “D$ckhead” Dykstra because he was able to do it. I went on a rant last week about this celebrity boxing match between Dykstra and Canseco so I guess this qualifies as a second rant. I’m actually probably the biggest jerkoff  because I’m the...
