Ellerbe: Judah Never Dropped Mayweather in Sparring

By Edward Chaykovsky

Leonard Ellerbe, adviser to WBC/WBA welterweight and junior middleweight champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. (47-0, 26KOs), has denied a circulating rumor that Floyd was knocked down in sparring by former two-division champion Zab Judah.

Last week, Floyd's uncle Jeff Mayweather revealed details of the sparring session between the two fighters, and said Floyd put a one-sided beating on Judah. Jeff later apologized for making those comments, stating in a video that he didn't know his statements would be printed.

A rumor began to surface on Tuesday night, that Judah dropped Mayweather during that sparring session and pointing to that incident as the reason behind Floyd's 'no mercy' approach as they sparred.

Ellerbe says the knockdown never happened.

"False. No [that didn't happen], Zab is in camp. Zab is a tremendous fighter. He's been helping with the preparation along with several other sparring partners. They are really pushing Floyd, but nothing like that ever happened," Ellerbe told Sky Sports.
