Ozzie Canseco Stands in for Twin Brother Jose Canseco in Boxing Scam
On Sunday evening we let you know about a mini-scandal brewing between Jose Canseco and Celebrity Boxing promoter Damon Feldman. Canseco didn’t fight because he says he wasn’t paid the $5,000 up front he was promised. I bought the story because a) Feldman has a shady criminal past including fight fixing charges and b) Canseco will do anything for money. Feldman instead accused Jose of sending twin brother Ozzie to stand in for him. That story sounded so improbable I just laughed it off.
Turns out, it was true.
The Miami Herald has pictures that confirm it was Ozzie on the scene. Not only does it not look like Jose, but the dead giveaway is the lack of armband tattoo. Check out these photos courtesy of The Miami Herald:
What did Ozzie think, he could just bring some other stand-in blonde and that people would be sold it was Jose’s girlfriend? We all know it isn’t either. Man, these guys are serious scammers! Who knew they’d be even more shady than a crooked celebrity boxing promoter?
