They have not even entered the ring yet and already Tareq Salahi and Jose Canseco already looked like they were about to come to blows on Thursday as they met to promote their upcoming fight, and RadarOnline.com has video of the stand-off.
The notorious White House gatecrasher and shamed former baseball player will be gloving up and coming to blows in the upcoming Celebrity Fight Night boxing competition on November 5 to raise money for several children’s charities.
“After I found this picture of Jose and my wife taken about five years ago, I am ready to take this man down. I had no idea that my wife has been lying to me every single day of our lives,” he said.
“So I am fighting for anyone who is against cheating, be in my corner and I am gonna take down Jose. So watch out Jose, I’m coming after you man!’ he told the crowd as they cheered enthusiastically.
Salahi’s taunts referred both to his wife, Michaela, who recently ran off with Journey guitarist Neal Schon, and the steroid cheating scandal that got Canseco shunned from the baseball community following his revelations about steroid use in the sport.
Later, Salahi and Canseco posed together and the MLB player was ready to spar, while the reality TV star, who was dressed in a beige jacket and mustard tie looking more like an insurance salesman than a boxer, just stood there limply.
“Put up your hands,” demanded Jose, as Salahi held up his phone and asked, “You tell me, what are you doing here?” as he pointed at the photo.
“You know what, I’m gonna tell you about your f**king wife!’ as he stormed off saying he would see him “in the ring,” and then screamed, “F**k you, kiss my a**!”
The pair have just a month to go before they can vent their issues in the ring, they will be joined by other scandalous match ups and the line-up for the five-card bout reads as follows:
Michael Lohan vs. Kato Kaelin
Coolio vs. Jeremy Jackson; Joey
Buttafuoco vs. Amy Fisher‘s husband, Lou Ballera
A part of the proceeds from the event will be forwarded to FilmOn Charitable Trust, a foundation that will forward the money to several children’s charities.
The card will air November 5 on www.FilmOn.com or your Pay-Per-View provider.
