Lenny Dykstra has pulled out of tonight's Battle of the Baseball Bad Boys against Jose Canseco despite being paid $5,000 cash on Thursday, according to promoter Damon Feldman.
Feldman said moments ago that he and main promoter Alki David met Dykstra on Thursday and paid him cash. The former Phillies star was to receive another $10,000 after the fight but informed promoters around 6 EST tonight that he would not show up.
UPDATE: Just spoke with a friend of Dykstra's who says that Lenny had never signed on to fight Canseco and did not receive any money from the promoters.
Earlier this month the 1986 World Series champion and former three-time All-Star and Philadelphia Phillies fan favorite-turned drug addict (turned flasher), changed his plea from not guilty to no contest on charges of auto theft and providing a false financial statement.Yikes.
”Nails” and his co-defendants are accused of trying to lease and sell high-end cars from California dealerships by claiming credit through a fake business. The plea change dropped the 48-year-old’s maximum possible prison sentence from 12 to four years.
Embattled ex-Phillies star Lenny Dykstra will take on Jose Canseco in Alki David’s Celebrity Fight Night featuring a Battle of the Baseball Bad Boys, at the Avalon Concert Hall in Hollywood. The fight, at 9 p.m. EST Saturday will be online streaming at FilmOn.com and according to Feldman, will also be available on pay-per-view television through Comcast and other providers.We'll see if Jose actually shows up for this boxing match, and doesn't have his twin brother Ozzie replace him.

The visually peculiar pair - she's a 21 year-old sunny, 5' 2" blonde starlet and he's a 35 year-old hulking 6' 5" Ukranian heavyweight champion - turned heads and fed endless rumors during their brief time together (they began dating two years ago). Panettiere even admitted on the "Ellen DeGeneres Show" that the most frequent fan question she gets is how, exactly, the couple manage their physical differences in the bedroom.
Back in January, I gave my nine reasons why that relationship was doomed. Well, it turns out I was right, but I didn't think it would last all the way until May.And I'm glad that others, like myself, thought the Panettiere-Klitschko sex had to be really damn weird.

A representative of the firm Celebrity Boxing confirmed Sunday that Canseco was a no-show Saturday at a boxing event in Hollywood – and instead sent his twin brother Ozzie in his place, El Nuevo Herald has learnedSource: Miami Herald
Some 30 minutes before his bout against Billy Padden at the Passion nightclub at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, it was discovered that the Canseco who was in South Florida ready to fight was not the same guy who hit 462 homeruns in the Major Leagues.
Damon Feldman, promoter of the celebrity boxing program, which also includes female boxing, had tell about 400 fans who had paid their tickets that there would not be a fight.
“We discovered the Canseco who showed up was Ozzie when he took off his shirt and didn’t have José’s tattoos on the biceps that appear in our advertising,” a Celebrity Boxing representative told El Nuevo Herald. The man said he did not want to be identified.
José Canseco did not respond to telephone calls.
On Sunday, however, José Canseco posted two messages on Twitter saying: “Damon Feldman did not comply with his part of the agreement,” and “be careful with Damon Feldman, the Celebrity Boxing leader, who will not pay you if you fight for him.”
The same source said that the agreed fee for José Canseco to fight in South Florida was $10,000.
“We made him a transfer of $5,000 when we agreed on the fight,” the source said. “Hours before the fight Saturday, we issued a check for the remaining $5,000 in the name of José Canseco, and we delivered it to whom we thought was José Canseco. He declined it and asked that the check be made out to cash, which we did.
