Celebrity Boxing: Rodney King, Jose Canseco Return To The Ring

By Boxing Press October 30th, 2009 All Press Releases

Jose Canseco is ready to silence one of his critics—the hard way. Meanwhile, Rodney King isn’t turning the other cheek this time

Former baseball star Canseco, a slugger at the plate, is now a slugger with his fists, and he has another Celebrity Boxing Federation (CBF) match scheduled to prove his mettle.

The iconic King, a symbol of late-20th century civil rights, is scheduled to appear on the same card.

Canseco will take on Pittsfield, MA native Todd Poulton on Friday, November 6 at the Sheraton Springfield Monarch Place Hotel as one of the two headline bouts of Celebrity Boxing 13: David vs. Goliath.

The other headliner match will feature King, who’ll face Derek MacIntosh, a former basketball star-turned actor from Cambridge, MA.

Rodney King is famous for the plea, “Can’t we all just get along?” Not in the ring on November 6, apparently.

“He’s been yapping about me a lot,” Canseco said of Poulton, who’s a CBF veteran and someone who’s battled OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder) most of his adult life.

“Well, he’s going to get his chance with me in the ring, but I’m going to make sure he regrets it,” Canseco added, grinning.

The bad blood between Canseco and Poulton was on display once again on Tuesday, October 6, when a press conference was held promoting the fight at the same hotel as where the match will take place.

As for King, he wants to win badly enough that he’s moved from Los Angeles all the way to Broomall, PA so that he may be trained by Pennsylvania boxing legend Marty Feldman.

“If I’m in, I’m in all the way,” King said of his cross-country move to be with Feldman.

In CBF circles, Canseco is perhaps best remembered for going toe-to-toe with actor, radio personality, and Reality TV star Danny Bonaduce earlier in 2009—a match that is still talked about.

“I’m done talking,” Canseco said about the match with Poulton. “Now I’m just waiting for November 6.”
