Jose Canseco flew all the way to Japan and had no idea who he was fighting

Michael Schivaello is a good guy to be around if you are ever looking to be hit over the head with a simile. Dude deals them out like rohypnol at a frat party. That simile was not Schivaello approved. If you’re looking for a stamp of authenticity on that simile, then I would say that you have your expectations set entirely too high for this article. Last night, Michael Schivaello delivered on MMAScrapsradio and told a story of a confused Jose Canseco at a breakfast bar in Japan.

“Let me tell you about Jose Canseco when he fought in Dream last year against Hong Man Choi. We were in the same hotel as him, we were having breakfast downstairs myself, Ray Sefo and Jan ‘The Giant’ Norte. Canseco comes up to me and Ray and he goes ‘What rules am I fighting under? What is this? What am I doing? Who is Hong Man Choi?’. We’re looking at him saying ‘Dude, are you serious? You’ve come all this way for an internationally televised bout, on nationally television in North America, national TV prime-time in Japan and you’re asking advice on the morning of the fight on how to fight your opponent and all you’ve come to Japan with is your friggin big double, triple Z breasted girlfriend? That’s it? Come on man.'”

For those of you who haven’t seen Canseco’s girlfriend, her name is Heidi Northcott and she is a professional poker player that most recently competed at Larry Flynt’s Challenge Cup at Hustler Casino placing 18th and winning a pot of $500. The most amazing thing about this article: There is a Hustler Casino. [Source]
