Jose Canseco sends twin brother to his MMA fight, who also refuses to fight.
News of the WTF: JOSE CANSECO sends twin brother, Ozzie, to fight in his place.
According to Damon Feldman, the promoter, Ozzie showed up at a Celebrity Boxing event Sat March 26th, at the Seminole Hard Rock,in Florida pretending to be Jose (who, according to Feldman, had already been paid a $5,000 advance). Ozzie then demanded 5K to fight, refused a check, and himself refused to fight.
He was outed as Ozzie, and not brother Jose, (who is famous for an EPIC baseball career, steroids, and losing horribly to Hong Man Choi), when people noticed he was missing arm tattoos that Jose has.
part of Jose's weekend twitter rant:
Feldman told the Miami Herald:
Canseco via twitter "the truth is always hidden from the public to create villains and heroes which 1 are you truly ... seek the truth before reacting ... just remember the media is write 20 percent of 50 percent of the time ... how can you haters being so ignorant it's amazing ... I am still waiting for an intelligent scenario ... by the way e s p n is owned by major league baseball of course they are going to lie."
"The guy I thought was Jose kept asking me to pay him in cash before (the fight),"
. "I told him I had to pay him by check for business reasons. He said he needed cash. We went back and forth."
p.s. Feldman canceled the Saturday fight and had Ozzie Canseco escorted out of the nightclub, by police.
