FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) -- A celebrity boxing firm claims that former baseball player Jose Canseco had his twin brother show up in his place for a boxing event in Hollywood.

El Nuevo Herald reported Monday that Canseco did not show up for a fight on Saturday at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. A representative from Celebrity Boxing told the Spanish language newspaper that the switch was discovered when Ozzie Canseco took off his shirt and didn't have his brother's tattoos on the biceps that appear in the company's advertising. The fight was cancelled.

Jose Canseco posted on his Twitter page Sunday that the company's representative did not comply with his part of the agreement.

Ozzie Canseco, also a former major league baseball player, was arrested on DUI charges in Tampa in January.
