Promotional strategies and trash talk Jha’s made the upcoming fight a personal affair according to Mayweather Promotions CEO Leonard Ellerbe, just recent lead his team despite the rowdy and rambunctious promotions of the fight between Floyd Mayweather Jr and Logan Paul.
Before then, the promotion had engage in a very abusive and foul filled promotion of the fight between Mayweather Jr. and UFC star Conor McGregor back in 2017. However, Ellerbe is doesn’t find Barrios statements funny and believes his starboy Davis will make him pay for his words.
“I have so much respect for Virgil Hunter because he’s my dude, but Tank is going to f— his boy up, for real,” Ellerbe told BoxingScene.com in an interview.
“[Ames] definitely crossed the line. A fighter is responsible for his team. What he said is some street sh!t. There is no room for that in boxing. Tank don’t play like that. Tank is a street dude. Tank is going to f— him all the way up. It’s going to take their entire corner and the referee to get Tank off of this motherf—–. This has now gone from a dangerous fight, which I’ve said all along, to something more. You don’t understand. I grew up in the streets. Where we’re from, sh!t is different. [Ames] said [Barrios is] going to crack Tank’s head and bust it down to the white meat! You don’t say sh!t like that! He got this sh!t all the f—–. I have never heard anyone say some real disrespectful sh!t like that. When you talk that sh!t there are repercussions behind it. [Ames] put a bounty on his kid’s head. Everybody knows what that means. I feel bad for Mario Barrios. I really do.”
Gervonta Davis (24-0, 23 KOs) will fight Mario Barrios (26-0, 17 KOs) on the 26th of June at State Farm Arena in Atlanta on Showtime pay-per-view. The two unbeaten champions met in a press conference last month and had some good communication between them but Ellerbe believes that things are different between the sides.
“Never as a promoter have I wished anything bad upon a fighter. At the end of day, everyone wants to be able to go home. I take great pride in fighters having health in competition and going back to their loved ones to enjoy the fruits of their labor,” said Ellerbe.
“Now this sh!t is all the way personal now. Tank is going to f— him up. I promise you that.”
