Fans of celebrity boxing (Read: broke gamblers) were incredibly disappointed Saturday night when they realized that Jose Canseco wasn’t himself when he showed up for his fight at the Hard Rock Casino in Hollywood, Florida. It was actually his twin brother Ozzie Canseco pretending to be Jose, and the scheme was busted by some fans who noticed the difference in the brothers’ tattoos. This of course begs the question – why the hell do people know what Ozzie Canseco’s tattoos look like?
Celebrity boxing promoter Damon Feldman expressed his disgust with the entire situation, explaining that he already paid Jose $5,000 up front and Ozzie demanded the other $5,000 in cash when he arrived to fight. Feldman explained that he needed to pay by check, and then someone yelled, “Hey, that’s not Jose Canseco!” resulting in a few thousand monocles shattering on the floor.
