Mayweather Promotions CEO Leonard Ellerbe like everyone else has been forced house bound during the current global pandemic.
He’s took some time out to chat with boxing fans and address a variety of topics.
Topics including Floyd Mayweather and a much clamored for fight down the line between Ryan Garcia and Gervonta Davis:

Some interesting bits there.
As regards a Floyd Mayweather comeback, I wouldn’t count on it.
Given the fact that the rest of 2020 is going to be a virtual shut off for international travel which Mayweather likes to do frequently for exhibitions in Asia.
A Gervonta Davis vs Ryan Garcia fight seems like a big one down the line that needs to be built up into a huge fight.
What a bout it will be though one day.
When boxing is back — nobody really knows at this point.
Nor do we know how it will be when it is back in terms of ticket prices, pay per view prices and everything else.
Boxing fans will likely be weary about going to arenas too given the easily transmitted nature of Covid-19.
One would imagine the new world boxing finds itself in will take a bit of time to adjust to.
As will all areas of life post Covid-19 lock down.
In the short-term, I’d expect ticket prices and the price of consuming boxing to be reduced when things do open back up.
While demand for boxing might be high the world finds itself in the middle of a recession due to the Coronavirus.
