Last week at this time, word came that Lenny Dykstra had dropped out of his "celebrity" boxing match against fellow shamed former big leaguer Jose Canseco.

Thankfully that bout never took place because, in its wake, we were graced with a barrage of anti-semitic tweets from Dykstra and a potential new foe for Canseco.

Ladies and gentlemen...enter "Shaq the Pugilist".

Check out the ufc live on fox 9pm eastern and 6pm western I'm going with Cain baby. What up Dana white I wanna fight Jose conseco hook it up

Sure, O'Neal mispelled "Canseco", but c'mon...we all know who he meant and, honestly, wouldn't you want to see that fight?

Also, it wouldn't be the first time the 7'1" bohemoth has set foot in the ring. The four-time NBA champ has squared off against both Oscar de la Hoya and "Sugar" Shane Mosley on his show "Shaq Vs.".

Your move Canseco. We both know you love a paycheck.
