Jose Canseco en route to Strikeforce?Posted on February 28, 2010, 02:00 PM by Daniel Cassidy
"That's not going to happen," Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker said regarding the signing of Jose Canseco. "I know he wants to fight and he trained with Cesar Gracie, but I don't think he's training with Cesar anymore."
Despite saying the above quote only a few weeks ago, it seems Strikeforce officials have changed their minds, with regards signing the Baseball Legend. The above image of Canseco at lunch with Strikeforce officials Scott Coker and Rich Chou appeared earlier today on Canseco's official twitter site.
Despite Canseco owning a 0-1 record since being thrown manhandled by Hong Man Choi, he still managed to call out Herschel Walker, the well decorated former footballer who dispatched of Grag Nagy at Strikeforce: Miami, saying
"I guess i may have to show Herschel Walker who the real bad boy of the sports industry is. If the powers that be are reading, i want in!"
While neither fighter is of any serious caliber, a fight between the two would undoubtedly bring much attention to any Strikeforce card. If it does occur, the April card is the most likely candidate, given Fedor's fight against Fabricio Werdum being pushed back, leaving a huge hole in the card.
