Mayweather Sr. Continues To Rip Ellerbe: He's Nothing

By Edward Chaykovsky

Floyd Mayweather Sr., father and trainer of WBC/WBA 147 and 154 champion Floyd Mayweather Jr., fully supports his son's recent criticisms of Mayweather Promotions CEO Leonard Ellerbe.

Floyd Jr. was unhappy with some of the happenings and details of his September pay-per-view rematch with Marcos Maidana at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Mayweather Promotions had the lead promotional role of the Showtime card.

"What he did with Leonard, I’ve been waiting for that to come for years. I’ve been waiting for that for years because Leonard, he’s nothing for real, I already knew that about him. There ain’t too much I can say about Leonard, but hey, he’s ain’t the man, I think Floyd did the best thing right there," Mayweather Sr. told On The Ropes Boxing Radio

While he was happy to see his son criticize Ellerbe, he wasn't that happy to see longtime cutman Rafael Garcia walk away from the team by announcing his retirement. Garcia was reportedly unhappy with Mayweather's decision to use the cutman services of Bob Ware, who also wrapped Mayweather's hands on the night of the Maidana rematch. 

"No, no. I really didn’t want to see Rafael go, being this close and as old as he is. I’m just saying that it’s Floyds show and Floyd’s got to do it the way he wants to do it, but that doesn’t mean that everybody has to agree with it but it’s his thing. He can do what he wants to do with it," Mayweather Sr. said.

"I thought that Rafael has been there so long, I thought he was gonna at least do it out. I don’t know what it was about, not quite, but they were saying it was something about the guy named Bob that did the hand wraps for him and Floyd liked him."
