Mayweather Promotions CEO Leonard Ellerbe sat in on Sway In The Morning and talked the upcoming fight with McGregor, unavoidable double-standards, and Mayweather’s tax “situation.”
Ellerbe, who has known Mayweather since he was 13 years old, is the next best thing to having Floyd himself on the show. If he wanted to, he could give a breakdown of his entire professional career and the years leading up to it. Today he opened up about Mayweather’s current physical and mental condition in preparation for the fight. The two major points: this will be Mayweather’s last fight and he is definitely going for the knockout.
There are some sizeable differences between Mayweather and McGregor. McGregor is an inch taller, 25 pounds heavier, and 11 years younger than Mayweather. Even with these differences, their records precede them. Mayweather leads an undefeated career while McGregor has lost three fights. Ellerbe’s take is that the match will be entertaining to watch; the facts agree.
On the topic of Mayweather’s taxes, Ellerbe points out that if there were really an issue with Mayweather’s taxes, there would have been more action taken, properties seized, etc. Addressing and the naysayers that they encounter, he shares a Money Team saying they have with the citizens. “Come Monday morning, no matter what anyone says, we’re on our way to the bank.”
