Jose Canseco apparently has a good reason for seeking a payday for a fight with Herschel Walker. The controversial former Oakland A’s slugger, who made his MMA debut against massive Korean Hong Man Choi last year, allegedly owes the Internal Revenue Service more than $320,000 in delinquent taxes.
The state of California has filed three liens against Canseco since 2008, and the IRS itself filed one lien earlier this year.
Canseco, one of the most dynamic baseball players of his era, earned more than $45 million during his career. In recent years, he’s become known as a whistle-blower on the steroid era and has written two books detailing his own steroid usage in addition to many other players.
