Amir Khan and Victor Conte no longer working together
Add Amir Khan to the list of fighters who has fallen out with former BALCO operator Victor Conte.
Conte announced via Twitter that he and coach Remy Korchmeny have terminated their work with Khan, less than a full month before Khan faces Luis Collazo on the Floyd Mayweather–Marcos Maidana Showtime pay-per-view card.
April 7, 9:53 PM PT:
@VictorConte: Reality is @victorconte & Remi Korchemny stopped working w/ @amirkingkhan because he promotes a cheap imitation knock-off ZMA product
Count Khan as the latest athlete that Cont. Once worked with whom he has thrown under the bus. Conte did similar with Andre Ward, who was one of the first athletes to work with Conte after his cloudy history. Conte also publicized his breakup with Nonito Donaire, the first fighter to enroll in VADA’s 24/7/365 testing.
Conte works with a number of fighters, from Shawn Porter to Edwin Rodriguez to Willie Nelson.
