Ellerbe Rips Arum Over Mayweather-Pacquiao 'Bullsh*t'

By Rick Reeno

Despite both fighters being scheduled to face other opponents in the fall, a mega-fight between Floyd Mayweather Jr. (41-0, 25KOs) and Manny Pacquiao (53-3-2, 38KOs) continues to dominate the headlines.

The main issue is still outstanding, according to Mayweather and his team. The issue of a "pre-fight random drug testing protocol" - which Mayweather wants USADA [United States Anti-Doping Agency] to handle.

Pacquiao, and his promoter Bob Arum of Top Rank, believe Mayweather is making excuses. In multiple interviews, both have expressed their willingness to satisfy Mayweather's demand for a random drug testing protocol.

Leonard Ellerbe, adviser to Mayweather and CEO of Mayweather Promotions, calls bullsh*t on the numerous comments regarding the willingness of Arum and Pacquiao to satisfy Floyd's demand for a drug testing protocol.

Ellerbe told BoxingScene.com that Arum is deceiving the public with his numerous statements pertaining to a Mayweather-Pacquiao fight.

Ellerbe's thoughts regarding Pacquiao's willingness to meet Mayweather's demands.

"[Arum], he's the biggest bullsh*t artist in the history of boxing. I respect what he's been able to do for the sport, as far as bringing great fights and he has a number of great fighters, but he's a bullsh*t artist. And he knows I'll tell him to his face and I've said it to him a number of times, he's a bullsh*t artist. But he can't bullsh*t us."

"We are our own bosses. he controls that crop over there, but he don't control anything over here. I think [Pacquio] is going to put the pressure on him. We have not had any conversations about anything, our focus is Victor Ortiz."

Ellerbe's thoughts on Arum's claim that Mayweather and his team have been advised that Pacquiao is willing to satisfy Floyd's demand for a drug testing protocol

"He's tells you guys that. He hasn't said anything to us because we aint talking to him. He aint telling us nothing. Why hasn't the fight been made? You can't see what he's been doing? If you truly understand the sport [you should know what he's doing]. He has a good little fighter. He signed a good little kid, he used to fight on our undercards. He's never been anything special and then all of a sudden he gets under his promotional umbrella and he sees an opportunity over here."

"And he knows what Floyd can do. Everybody on his staff knows what Floyd can do. We worked with them for ten years. They know Floyd is the real deal and don't let them bullsh*t you on that. They know Floyd is the real deal."

Ellerb's thoughts regarding the popular theory that Mayweather is avoiding Pacquiao.

"What [Arum has] been able to do is create this persona over here, because Floyd has taken an extended amount of time off, and [Arum] created this persona that 'this guy over here is scared to do this.' The same bullsh*t they did with [Antonio] Margarito. The same bullsh*t. You guys fall for it every time. You fall for it every time. Every time a situation comes up, he puts his kid in with a guy Floyd already beat. And then at the end of the day, you guys give him a bunch of credit and praise for beating that guy."

"Floyd already beat this guy, that guy and that guy, and they create this delusional theory that Floyd is scared to fight. Fighters fight, that's what they do. There is no such thing as being on top for a number of years, and then all of sudden you're scared of a fighter. Scared of what? What the hell can this guy do that nobody else has been able to do?"

"I think the kid is going to put the pressure on his promoter, because the kid is looking at the situation and saying 'how the hell is Floyd Mayweather going out and making all of these ridiculous amounts of money and I go out and fight and I'm only making a fraction.' Floyd is fighting these same guys and making triple of what this guy makes. It's all factual."

Ellerbe's thoughts on Pacquiao's ability to present a serious threat to Mayweather.

"That fight right there is going to be one of Floyd's easiest fights. Mark my words, one of his easiest fights. The two are not even on the same level. [Pacquiao is] a good little fighter, but there's a difference. He has a trainer [Freddie Roach]. And once again I give his trainer all the credit, [but] he's a bullsh*t artist. [He's] very good at tricking the public because he understands the business of it. At the end of the day, the promoter knows what time of day it is, the matchmaker knows what time of day it is and the fighter knows what time of day it is."
