Howard got Danny Bonaduce on the phone and welcomed Jose Canseco to the studio to discuss their upcoming boxing match. The two claimed the bout was for money, not to settle a score.
Jose explained: "I used to watch him growing up, but I still have to knock him out." Danny agreed: "I'm getting in the ring with the giant...I could get killed [but] my money's still on me...The guy can't beat me."
After sizing up Jose's arm length, Howard and Robin speculated that Danny wouldn't be able to get close enough to Jose to hurt him - but Danny promised a good fight: "I feel pain. It lets me know I'm alive...I don't care how I get in. I'm going to get in by letting this guy punch me in the face three times...I'm gonna knock you out and then have sex with you."
Jose laughed: "I would have to make a lot of mistakes to have him beat me."
Jose's Roid Worm
Both fighters admitted to recent steroid use - Jose actually said he was getting regular (doctor administered) "testosterone injections" to combat the feminizing effects of quitting steroids cold-turkey.
Howard asked Jose about his recent arrest for HGC trafficking, so Jose explained: "It's basically a female urine that you inject into your body to make your testosterone levels get back to normal...I didn't know you had to have a prescription for it." Jose added that years of steroid use had rendered his body totally unable to produce testosterone on its own.
Gary wondered if Jose was hated by the entire MLB after using his last book to expose widespread steroid use in the league, so Jose admitted: "I'm not sure all the players, but for sure all the owners...I actually apologized to the players." Jose added that his book would've been no good if he hadn't named names: "If you keep Barry Bonds out of the Hall of Fame for steroid [use], you have to keep them all out."
Jose then brought in his girlfriend, Heidi, and Howard noted how good she looked. Heidi echoed Jose's complaints about the side effects of steroids, saying it really affected Jose's manhood: "It was completely non-existent. He was basically a useless, lifeless body...it was like an anorexic gummy worm."
