These days, there are new opportunities for elite athletes to make money outside of their chosen sports. For example, many sports stars have begun stepping into the world of boxing or MMA because they want to make a quick buck. Often they face YouTubers and other Z-List celebrities in freak shows that leave people with a bad taste in their mouths.
Today we’ll look at some of these freak shows and see who enjoyed success or failed miserably. We’ll also provide the context about how these wacky events came to happen. Check out the list below.
There aren’t many former MLB players who openly admit that they used PEDs. However, Canseco has no qualms about discussing his past and revealed everything in his book. The baseball star rocked the boat with his claims and made a lot of enemies in the process (via DAZN).
Meanwhile, he tried to stay relevant after he retired from the sport. He entered the world of combat sports and fought in MMA. Then in 2021, he competed against Barstool Sports Intern ‘Billy Football.’ But Canseco enraged fans when his opponent ran through him in 10 seconds. They accused him of throwing the fight but he denied it.
