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:
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.

This would make for a fantastic comedy, starring the Canseco brothers playing themselves.

wow...just wow. I would love that as a reality show? Jose and Ozzie would just go around and see how many people would fall for Ozzie making all of Jose's personal appearances...

Didn't David and Peter Paul, the Barbarian Brothers, already make a movie about this back in the 80's?

What they should have done is swapped places between rounds, so there would be a fresher Conseco at every bell!

or poked the ref in the eyes, or distract him with some naughty gestures at a fan, and then switch...or do a double-team move, while their camp distracts the ref with vulgarity. What's that thing the Legion of Doom used to do....do that!!!!
They should have both fought Hong Man Choi simultaneously.

I think Vince Mcmahon has a place here.

He should have gotten his brother to fight this one (click spoiler). Couldn't have gone any worse.
The reason I bumped...read this trainwreck below.
I wouldn’t pay $1000 to hang out with Jose Canseco for a day, but for five buck I would pee on his leg.
