Dont forget that at 1st people were saying that Berto couldnt make the date and that Ortiz would fight someone else. I could see his team telling Conte this and then Conte saying that I could put you on the juice to heal quickly from the injury and it would be out of your system by time you test or it wouldnt show on the test.
I could see them trusting Conte because they think he's the guru. I could maybe see Berto and his team not wanting to do it but like guys in other sports, when you see your career & big money slipping away, you end up saying F-it.
They tell Berto that you can do things the normal way, never be the same after the injuries, or take a long time to heal where you will miss the big pay day or you can take the juice, get paid, and be on top after a victory. You wont get caught because Conte is the best.
Just speculation :-)
Yea I feel you on that sounds like something that will happen too
