Entertainer Jose Canseco earned enough money for just 12 seconds of work in the ring at the recent “Rough ‘n Rowdy” pay-per-view boxing event put on by Barstool Sports. In the card’s main event, Canseco squared off against Burstool’s Will “Billy Football” Couture for a stunning total of 12 seconds, before a shoulder injury kept him from continuing. According to the New York Post, between Canseco’s $ 50,000 fee upstairs and Barstool-record-breaking PPV sales, Barstool’s Dave Portnoy claims Canseco earned about $ 1 million for his role in Micro-Fight.
Portnoy accused Sensco of “diving,” portraying a character that Cenesco found to be an issue on his constantly cynical Twitter account:
“Get my name out of your filthy New England mouth repeatedly @stoolpresidente You’re a liar and a salesman (sly) … You and your Barnstool Minions have to keep marijuana down and focus on your failing business”
This was in response to a previous tweet by Portnoy in which he publicly alleged:
“Jose 100% took the plunge. We paid half in front and doubled if he won. We thought he would make sure he struggled. We were wrong.”
In another tweet, Canseco appears to be promising future revelations that will clarify his name on the allegation that he threw the fight:
“Wait for it. Find out what’s really happened here, has anyone ever seen me get hit in the face, wait for the truth to come to you in a theater”
Whatever happened in the ring that night was a very lucrative show for both Barstool Sports and Jose Canseco, even leaving a lot of fans disappointed at the main event, which cost home viewing Was $ 19.99 for.
