First round KO: Philly's first "Flyin Hawaiian" knocks out Jose Canseco in the first round of a celebrity-charity boxing match. He treated him like the Giants goal-post in 1992, making Canseco look even more ridiculous then he already has made himself. Sikahema was asked if there were any surprises. "That it didn't finish in the first 30 seconds," he said.

Like Stephen A. Smith said, Vai Sikahema is a MAN! Seriously, though, Canseco needs to just go away. Disappear. The guy continues to look for publicity, thinking he's going to be taken seriously, but all he ever does is embarrass himself further. That's pretty much been "business as usual" for the guy since that fly ball in Cleveland bounced off his head and over the fence for a home run. What a buffoon.

Too funny. Though to be fair, Sikahema does have quite a bit of boxing experience. 80 some fights is a lot. I'm sure the Canseco fan club took the loss hard.

Go Jose! away! far away!!! Jose quit looking for an additional 15 minutes of fame everytime you do, you expose yourself as the idiot that you really are. Besides, has anyone ever seen a good bench clearing brawl in baseball, all those guys do is hug each other & dance around. Its not like the good ol days when 40-some year old Nolan Ryan landed a good roundhouse to a batter's head that challenged him

Its not like the good ol days when 40-some year old Nolan Ryan landed a good roundhouse to a batter's head that challenged him Robin Ventura. Now that was the Nolan Ryan Express at his finest and Ventura can attest that those weren't nuggies he was getting.

They were so noogies (by the way...that's the spelling, so get it right, okay?). They were just big honkin' jumbo Nolan Ryan I-shall-smite-thee-with-my-good-right-hand noogies.

I don't think I'll ever understand Jose Canseco. But I do enjoy watching him make a fool of himself over and over again. I'm surprised there isn't a reality show following him around. Maybe he's Tila Tequila's lost love. Maybe he can help Cory and Corey get along. How about Flava Flav and Jose together? Can Jose drive a truck? Maybe he can be an Ice Road Trucker.
