Conte Responds To Wilder's "Always a Cheat" Jab at Luis Ortiz

Victor Conte, CEO of SNAC System speaks out in response to WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder's recent comments made during the pre-fight conference call for his upcoming world title bout against Luis Ortiz in Brooklyn, New York on March 3rd.

"We always say, once a cheat, always a cheat and that will always carry with him but that's going to be up to Luis Ortiz.  I think Luis Ortiz is a smart guy and I think he's going to do the right thing up to this point," Wilder said.

"If he doesn't, like I said, it'll be shame on him to put people through so much pain and it's ridiculous that we have to be talking about this still at this point in time with drugs and cheating and stuff but I think he's going to do the right thing and so with that being said, I'm not worried about it.
 
"I have confidence in him that he's going to turn-up clean and he's going to give a great performance on the night of that fight and we're all going to be winners at the end of the night."

Below are some of the quotes from Conte's response to Wilder:
 
"I don't believe Deontay Wilder knows much about anti-doping!"
 
"I don't think Wilder's statement '...once a cheat, always a cheat' is coming from an informed individual."
 
"He seems to know about as much about anti-doping as I know about skydiving and I am afraid of heights."
 
"Luis Ortiz has been tested seven times by VADA as well as the New York commission."
 
"I've been assisting the Ortiz camp by helping trainer Herman Caicedo with nutrition and training protocols. In fact, I have tested Ortiz's blood profile on two different dates and have not seen any of the markers that would suggest any form of drug use."
 
"Bottom line. I think Luis Ortiz is a clean athlete and everybody needs to put this 'once a cheat, always cheat' stuff aside.  I hope it doesn't become a distraction or sideshow this week and that everyone can focus upon a great fight that is about to happen.  My prediction is Luis Ortiz will do a great job and become the new heavyweight champion of the world."

Conte is one of the most corrupt persons in doping history. Don Catlin, an anti-doping scientist and one of the founders of modern drug-testing in sport (check this guy out in the Netflix doc "Icarus") said this past year that…

I'm gonna take the word of a nutritionist over experts and an anti-doping agency. Lets see how he does without his "meds". I'm 100% sure Wilder flattens him in R5/6.

Bottom line: Scribes just need to stop asking Wilder anything. Anyone with a properly functioning mind knows Wilder currently has by far the biggest mouth in the sport. Right up there with Fury when he has a fight upcoming. Yeah,…

"I think Luis Ortiz is a clean athlete and everybody needs to put this 'once a cheat, always cheat' stuff aside." Why did he say "I think Luis Ortiz is a clean athlete" if he's been in control of his…
