Herschel Walker said he “would hurt” Jose Canseco if the two ever met in a MMA bout.
“Jose wants to do this for money,” Walker said Wednesday on a Dallas radio station. “My thing is, if he wants to fight me and he thinks it’s going to be a circus, I will hurt him. This is not a joke, I will hurt him, because I don’t do things as a joke. I don’t do this as entertainment. If we go out and play a flag football game, that’s entertainment. We’re having fun. But this MMA fighting is real. You can get hurt, and he doesn’t understand it. I do this as an MMA fighter, not as a joke.”
On Monday, Canseco challenged Walker on his Twitter page, tweeting “I guess I may have to show Herschel Walker who the real bad Boy of the Sports industry is. If the powers that be are reading, I want in.”
Strikeforce, the company that promotes Walker, has said a Canseco-Walker bout is highly unlikely. But if it was to come to fruition, would you pay to Herschel Walker take on Jose Canseco?
