Where is a professional athlete gone broke and facing criminal charges to turn? If you’re a loyal reader, you know there is only one answer: Celebrity Boxing Federation promoter Damon Feldman.

Embattled ex-Phillies star Lenny Dykstra will take on Jose Canseco in Alki David’s Celebrity Fight Night featuring a Battle of the Baseball Bad Boys, at the Avalon Concert Hall in Hollywood. The fight, at 9 p.m. EST Saturday will be online streaming at and according to Feldman, will also be available on pay-per-view television through Comcast and other  providers.

Dykstra had been a scheduled guest at a sports memorabilia show this weekend at Oxford Valley Mall, but according to Feldman, who is promoting the fight with Alki David, Dino Bomis, and Bobby Capone, the guys bought Lenny out in order for him to be able to fight in California on Saturday.

"Lenny is fighting for his good name in baseball. Lenny's life for the last two years has been upside down mainly because of snitches," says Dykstra's business manager Dan Herman, of West Chester. "Canseco is one of the many rats that have diminished Dykstra's career," Herman says, citing how Canseco's book "Juiced," helped lead to the MLB investigation into steroid use in which Dykstra was involved.
