Jose Canseco calls out Herschel Walker
In between tweets about suffering a chapped rear from horseback riding and promoting himself to land a tanning salon endorsement deal in the Northridge-Chatsworth area, former baseball slugger Jose Canseco has called out former NFL running back Herschel Walker.
"I guess I may have to show Herschel Walker who the real bad boy of the Sports Industry is," Canseco wrote on on his Twitter page. "If the powers that be are reading, I want in."
Walker had derided Canseco for a lack of commitment before the steroid-tainted former "Bash Brother" of steroid-tainted Mark McGwire lost in his own MMA debut last year. Canseco has also had a celebrity boxing match with Danny Bonaduce of "The Partridge Family."
Attempts to reach Walker and his promoters at Strikeforce were not immediately successful.
