Conte has by all accounts been clean and a positive influence in the world of boxing in the past few years. However, this is just unsettling to me given his past involvement with BALCO, and of course his direct involvement in steroids usage in the sport of boxing, via Shane Mosley. With continuous news stories out there about performance enhancing drugs usage in boxing, such as the just breaking news about Yuriorkis Gamboa, if I was a professional boxer, I would be steering quite clear of anything involving Conte.
