Jose Canseco Twin-Switch

Many had forgotten that professional roider Jose Canseco has a twin brother, Ozzie. Jose had a celebrity boxing match on Saturday (vs. Celebrity trainer Billy Padden in Hollywood Fla.) and pulled the old switcheroo. It worked to the T, until Ozzie took his shirt off a half hour before the fight. His tats did not match those of Jose. Jose was paid $5000 in advance and another $5000 was given to Jose Ozzie before the fight. A celebrity boxing representative will put a stop payment on it today, and strangely Ozzie refused to give the check back? Read the quotes, courtesy msn, foxsports:

“[Ozzie] didn’t have Jose’s tattoos on the biceps that appear in our advertising,” the representative said.

“Hours before the fight Saturday, we issued a check for the remaining $5,000 in the name of Jose Canseco, and we delivered it to whom we thought was Jose Canseco,” the man explained.

“When we discovered that the person to whom we had given the rest of the money was not Jose but Ozzie, we asked him to return the check, but he refused to do it.

“We will go to the bank on Monday and put a stop-payment on it.”
