Leonard Ellerbe Talks Differences Between Charlos And Floyd Mayweather
Leonard Ellerbe sees key differences between the Charlo brothers and Floyd Mayweather.
Ellerbe, the CEO of Mayweather Promotions, knows “Money” Mayweather better than most. That’s why whenever there’s a young up-and-coming fighter who is compared to Mayweather, Ellerbe can’t help but chuckle. With that said, Ellerbe sees something special in Jermall and Jermell Charlo.
Ahead of the big Showtime Boxing doubleheader this Saturday, September 26, Ellerbe spoke to BoxingScene.com. He discussed the differences between the Charlo brothers and Floyd Mayweather, and why that’s a good thing.
“The Charlos are both charismatic, have dynamic personalities and their own identities, and both of them can fight their a–es off. They mean business. They are always in shape. But they don’t have to chase Floyd’s records and pattern themselves after him. There will never be another Floyd Mayweather Jr., as far as having the kind of success and records that he had in PPV. And that’s OK, because Floyd is a stand-alone icon who did the unthinkable, and in my opinion, will never be touched. The Charlos can create their own path and own lane, and they have the biggest platform on Showtime to do it. It starts this weekend.”
Jermell will be in a title unification bout against Jeison Rosario. Jermell holds the WBC Light-Middleweight Title, while Rosario is the WBA (Super) and IBF Champion. Jermall will be putting his WBC Middleweight Championship up for grabs against Sergiy Derevyanchenko. The Showtime PPV doubleheader has a pricepoint of $74.95. The action is being held inside an empty Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Connecticut.
