A boxing promoter in Hollywood, Fla., is alleging that he hired the controversial baseball player to participate in a celebrity boxing match for $10,000 -- and Canseco sent Ozzie to pretend he was Jose and fight in his place.
This scenario may have worked in movies like "The Parent Trap," but, according to the Sun Sentinel, it failed in real life because Jose has a barbed wire tattoo on one arm and Ozzie doesn't.
According to The Kansas City Star, the copycat Canseco did not end up fighting in his brother's place and received a police escort out of the nightclub. Feldman said he paid Jose $5,000 before the fight and was to give Jose an additional $5,000 upon arrival.
Now the gloves are coming out again because of a monetary dispute. "The guy I thought was Jose kept asking me to pay him in cash before [the fight]," Feldman said. "I told him I had to pay him by check for business reasons. He said he needed cash. We went back and forth."
This isn't the first time Ozzie, who appeared in only 24 major league games over the course of three seasons, has been accused of pretending to be Jose.
He appeared as a Jose Canseco impersonator on Season 5 of VH1's "The Surreal Life" and has reportedly pretended to be Jose at baseball card shows and book signings.
But it goes both ways: Numerous tabloid papers have reported that Jose pretended to be Ozzie in order to have sex with Ozzie's wife.
Ozzie, as usual, is staying in his brother's shadow, but Jose is reacting to the charges of double-talking and double-dealing through Twitter. In various tweets, he's alleged that the true story hasn't come out and that the promoter doesn't pay what he owes his boxers.
For good measure, he also attacked ESPN, saying it is owned by Major League Baseball so "of course, they are going to lie," and the media in general with this tweet: "Just remember the media is write 20 percent of 50 percent of the time."
