There was no question that Jose Canseco was ready for his fight on Friday night. He had spent the past few weeks playing the role of the heel on Twitter, saying that his bout against a Barstool Sports intern would be for anyone who was tired of that website existing. Canseco had even promised a first round knockout, saying that this would not be much of a fight.

As it turns out, Canseco was correct in both statements. The fight lasted 15 seconds as he was knocked down and then quit after pointing to his shoulder.

For his part, Canseco claimed that his shoulder was injured before the fight and that his landing made it worse.

As horrendous as this bout was, Canseco had fought before. He actually had a 1-1-1 record on the celebrity boxing tour and losing his one MMA fight in 77 seconds. Canseco had even seemingly regarded this as a warm up to battle Logan Paul, another wanna-be boxer that he had been feuding with on Twitter over the past few months.

This fight was expected to be a circus from the start. The Rough N’ Rowdy bouts are hardly boxing clinics and are a bit lax with the rules. Having Canseco involved only added to the spectacle, but given his professed proficiencies in several forms of fighting, we had hope for a great deal of entertainment.

And we did. For 15 seconds. Sadly, Canseco never landed one of his thunderous jobs or dangerous uppercuts, choosing to clinch the intern before falling into the corner. The people wanted a circus, and they certainly got one.

Jose Canseco promised a first round knockout. He just never said who would be hitting the canvas.
