Mayweather Promotions CEO Leonard Ellerbe believes that Floyd Mayweather Jr. (48-0, 26 KOs) has done more than enough in his long 19-year pro career, and he doesn’t need to stick around beyond his September 12th fight against Andre Berto (30-3, 23 KOs).

He doesn’t see anything else that Mayweather can hope to accomplish by sticking around much longer. Continue reading Ellerbe: How much can we ask of Mayweather?
