Mayweather Promotions CEO Leonard Ellerbe insisted that Floyd Mayweather will not fight Manny Pacquiao anytime soon or move up to face Saul “Canelo” Alvarez.

The second showdown between Mayweather and Pacquiao arguably is still the most sought after boxing rematch in the world. However, after several exchanges on social media and interviews, the two boxing superstars have yet to make an official announcement.

A few days ago, Ellerbe of Mayweather Promotions spoke to reporters about the undefeated champ’s next moves. According to Ellerbe, Mayweather is the type of champion who knows what he’s doing and if he wanted a rematch with the Filipino legend, he would’ve announced it already.

“Floyd’s just being him and doing him. If Floyd wanted to run that back (with Pacquiao), he’ll let y’all know. He’d come out and he’d make an announcement,” Ellerbe stated.

Prior to Ellerbe’s statement, Mayweather and Pacquiao almost made the boxing world believed that a rematch is about to go down. Pacquiao pulled off a unique Mayweather call out with the help of billionaire Jack Ma.

The eight-division title holder dissed Mayweather’s last appearance in a boxing ring when he fought an overmatched Japanese kickboxing star in a three-round exhibition in 2018.

“Floyd, if you want a real fight, fight me. If you want an exhibition then my guy, my friend, Jack Ma will take care of you,” Pacquiao said in the video.

It didn ’ t take long before Mayweather made a solid response to his former rival. As per the undisputed champ, regardless of what “ Pacman ” said, he will still beat him on the rematch.

“I know what he (Pacquiao) said but when he finally see me, I’ll beat him,” Mayweather vowed.

In another interview, Ellerbe insisted a definitive “no” when asked about the possibility that Mayweather could be heading up another division to face Canelo at middleweight. Instead, the CEO dismissed any possible fights in the future and emphasized that his boss has proven himself to everybody already.

“We know what we are doing. We’ve built the biggest star in the entire sport for a number of years. Who also become the highest-paid athlete in the entire world. I think we know what we are doing,” Ellerbe said.

“Floyd’s numbers speak for themselves. But he’s retired. Let that man live,” Ellerbe added.



After the KO win over Sergey Kovalev, Alvarez now joins a list of boxing icons who have held four or more world titles in different weight divisions including Sugar Ray Leonard, Tommy Hearns, Floyd Mayweather Jr, Manny Pacquiao and Juan Manuel Marquez.

At this point, it’s safe to say that Canelo has all the right to be worthy of a rematch with Mayweather at any weight class.
