Canseco pulls out of boxing bout to visit ill father

Jose Canseco pulled out of his scheduled Friday bout with Bill "El Wingador" Simmons to fly to Miami to be with his father, who is seriously ill. He left early morning from Philadelphia where he had arrived the day before for a press conference with Wingador. In a pinch, promoter Damon Feldman called former WWF wrestler Brutus "The Barber" Beefcake, who drove down from Boston to fight El Wingador, a five-time Wing Bowl champion. Wingador won in the first round of the fight, which took place at the Ice Works Skating Complex, in Aston.
