Jose Canseco Loses Boxing Match to 60-Year-Old

Whatever happened to Oakland Athletics Jose Canseco? Occasionally he pops up from time to time and he popped up again recently at the "Rock'em Sock'em Rumble by the River" that was presented before the Arkansas Travelers-Midland Rockhounds Double-A baseball game.

Canseco (weighing in at 240 pounds) was pitted against 60-year-old Gary Hogan (weighing in at 191 pounds) in a boxing match. You would think that this would be an easy match for Canseco who is 46 years-old, but it was more of an embarrassing fight for him and he lost. Hogan is an associate athletic director at the University of Arkansas-Little Rock and he won with a 39-37 decision over Canseco.
The boxing match benefits the Ray Rodgers' boxing gym and GED program in Little Rock, and Canseco was paid for his participation. Canseco is still seeking an MMA fight against former Heisman Trophy winner Herschel Walker. Seriously? Canseco would get rocked by Walker!
