Say what you will about this whole strange affair, but if Jose Canseco fought Shaq on a major television network it would more than likely go down as the most watched MMA event in North America (maybe the world) for better or worse. Do we want to see this fight go down? Of course we do. Do we think it hurts the sport in any way? Nah, a fight like this would do less damage to the sport than the Australian athletic commission. Besides, if the below quote is how this whole ‘super’ fight officially starts, then it is probably the best fight announcement in history. Mostly because it came during a conference call to promote men’s skin lotion and references a pound for pound top five cereal.
“I challenged him a long time ago. If he wants it done, he knows where to find me,” O’Neal, who was listed at 7-foot-1 and 325 pounds in his playing career, told Reuters on Tuesday in a telephone interview from Florida to promote Dove Men + Care skin product.
“He can be high off whatever, and I’ll be high off Frosted Flakes,” O’Neal, 40, said about the popular breakfast cereal.
Shaq wins this one as fast as Hong Man Choi I reckon.
