Let’s see, where to begin, “The pot calling the kettle black” or “People in glass houses”.

Can’t decide which fits better in this case but the evidence seems to point to boxing is now officially the resting place for ex-steroid dealers and drug cheats.

First Ex-Balco boy Victor Conte and now “Memo” Heredia has taken up residence in the sweet science, it’s as if the FBI has used boxing as its witness protection program.

Victor Conte in an interview with Boxingscene.com outed Marquez strength and conditioning coach Angel Hernandez as truly  being Angel “Memo” Heredia, who turned states witness during a 2008 trial regarding selling PED’s to athletes.

“This Heredia story is certainly no surprise to me.  He was the government’s star witness in BALCO doping cases against track stars including Marion Jones.  Angel was at the top of the food chain in the drug distribution case against Jones’ coach Trevor Graham. The feds rolled him over on everybody involved in the case including several world champions and Olympic medalists. Bottom line.”
