Former Major League Baseball slugger Jose Canseco is reportedly set to return to the ring in a celebrity boxing match against Michael Lohan.

According to TMZ Sports, Damon Feldman of 16 Minuteman promotions said the 51-year-old six-time MLB All-Star will lock horns with actress Lindsey Lohan’s father in Los Angeles in September.

Canseco is 5-1 in celebrity boxing matches, while Lohan is 3-0, per TMZ Sports.

The former Oakland Athletics, Texas Rangers, Boston Red Sox, Toronto Blue Jays, Tampa Bay Rays, New York Yankees and Chicago White Sox standout also has some experience in mixed martial arts, losing his only professional fight by submission to Choi Hong-man in 2009.

Most of Canseco’s success came on the baseball diamond, as he retired with a career batting average of .266 with 462 home runs and 1,407 RBI.

He was also the first player to ever join the MLB 40-40 club, smashing 42 homers and stealing 40 bases in 1988.

An official date and venue for the reported fight have yet to be announced, but due to Canseco’s star power and controversial personality, the bout promises to generate plenty of media buzz.
