If drug cartels are promoting these boxers does the US government and boxing commissions have a legal right to ban these boxers if drug cartels support them?
Personally I don't think its an issue. As long as the fighters don't inject PEDs then they don't have any performance advantage over their rivals in the ring.
One boxer could be supported by the mob, but he's clean, while on the other hand another boxer may not be supported by the mob but uses PEDs to win fights... I'd rather choose the former than the latter.
What really matters is what they are all about in the ring, and not really how they got there or who supported them to get there. That's how I see it.
The place is dirty (I mean the world is dirty). Even in other lines of business, the mob is very active in many things. So I wouldn't be surprised on the extent of their involvement in sports. But as I said... as long as their fighters (if any) don't use PEDs then that's cool.
