Shaq ‘ready’ to fight Jose Canseco in MMA

Tuesday, March 13, 2012

Shaquille O’Neal says he is willing to face former MLB All-Star Jose Canseco in a mixed martial arts bout.

Canseco, 47, whose baseball comeback bid with the Quintana Roo Tigres of the Mexican League stalled last week when he was banned for declining to take a doping test, has been calling out the four-time NBA champion in messages on his Twitter account.

“I challenged him a long time ago. If he wants it done, he knows where to find me,” O’Neal, who was listed at 7-foot-1 and 325 pounds in his playing career, told Reuters on Tuesday..

“He can be high off whatever, and I’ll be high off Frosted Flakes,” O’Neal, 40, said.
