In name only, the guy picked from dozens of applicants to fight former baseball slugger Jose Canseco in Lauderdale June 27 is already a winner. The promoters chose a Boca Raton writer named Christopher Gambino to go three rounds against the former Tampa Bay Ray. This Gambino is cagey when it comes to his lineage and may not even be related to the notorious crime family, but he looks the part. He’s also 6-foot-1 and 215 pounds, three inches shorter and 40 pounds lighter than the former steroid user Canseco. — Palm Beach Post

With Gambino involved Canseco might end up swimming with the fishes. -TO
