Mayweather CEO Shuts Down Haney's Hopes for Tank Davis Showdown"

In a recent turn of events, Mayweather Promotions CEO Leonard Ellerbe has firmly quashed any talks of a potential bout between Devin Haney and Gervonta ‘Tank’ Davis. Ellerbe categorically stated that the fight won’t happen, citing the two fighters operating in different weight classes.

The Mayweather Promotions head honcho made it clear that there is simply no interest on their side to make the matchup with Haney a reality. Ellerbe’s comments raise eyebrows, hinting at the possibility that weight might not be the primary reason for avoiding a clash with Haney. The looming question is whether Tank Davis might move up to face the winner of the WBA light welterweight championship bout on March 30 between Rolando ‘Rolly’ Romero and Isaac ‘Pitbull’ Cruz.

Despite being pressed on the potential matchup with Haney, Ellerbe emphasized, “Big fights will be made when they make sense. Tank will beat all those guys.” Ellerbe also hinted at the financial aspect, stating, “You get paid what you weigh.” This cryptic remark suggests that even if the opportunity arose for Haney to face WBA lightweight champion Tank Davis, the financial terms might not be to Haney’s liking.

When pressed about Haney’s willingness to accept a deal similar to Ryan Garcia’s, Ellerbe dismissed the idea, asserting, “They’re two different weight classes.” Ellerbe highlighted the distinction, making it clear that the deal offered to Ryan Garcia doesn’t apply to Haney due to the weight disparity.

As the boxing world awaits clarity on Tank Davis’s next move, it seems the prospect of a Haney-Davis showdown remains elusive, with Mayweather Promotions holding firm on their stance.
