As if Jose and Ozzie Canseco needed to make more headlines...they pulled a move remiscent of a bad sitcom plot. Basically...the twin brothers went all "The Parent Trap" Saturday night and pulled a switcheroo at a boxing event in which Jose was to fight.
Here's what The Miami Herald had to say:
Some 30 minutes before his bout against Billy Padden at the Passion nightclub at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, it was discovered that the Canseco who was in South Florida ready to fight was not the same guy who hit 462 homeruns in the Major Leagues.
“We discovered the Canseco who showed up was Ozzie when he took off his shirt and didn’t have José’s tattoos on the biceps that appear in our advertising,” a Celebrity Boxing representative told El Nuevo Herald. The man said he did not want to be identified.
Honestly, if you're paying to watch Jose Canseco box...you deserve to get Ozzie. Seriously, why would you want to go watch the former MVP perform in the ring?
That aside...something tells me that this isn't the last we'll hear of this story.
