Born Carlos Conde in 1908. Conde began his career in sports as an announcer for Cuban radio in 1929 and developed a strong following at CMQ radio in Havana. He also wrote sports news stories for a variety of Cuban daily papers including Diario Nacional, El Crisol and Diaro de la Marina.
He soon ventured into boxing promotions and operated shows at the Palacio de Deportes and Ciudad Deportiva. Conde's involvement in the sweet science expanded and he soon managed a stable of top boxers. After relocating to Miami following Castro's rise to power, he famously guided the careers of Cuban born, Mexico-based Hall of Fame champions Ultiminio (Sugar) Ramos (featherweight) and Jose (Mantequilla) Napoles (welterweight).
In the mid-1970s, Conde returned to broadcasting and worked as a sportscaster at the Spanish language WFAB and also wrote a newspaper column titled Sports Cocktail.
He died at age 72 in October 1980.
