Boxing Promoter Drunk on Riches Says Sure, Conor McGregor Can Box Again

Boxing Promoter Drunk on Riches Says Sure, Conor McGregor Can Box Again

If there’s one thing rich people love, it’s getting even more rich. They just love it.

Such is the case with Leonard Ellerbe, the man behind the Floyd Mayweather/Conor McGregor bout on Saturday night. If pay-per-view tracking is to be believed, the epic fight made everyone involved so rich they can all make like Scrooge McDuck and dive into piles of gold coins now – if they weren’t able to do that already.

And of course, Ellerbe says McGregor is more than welcome to box again.

As per MMAJunkie:

“I was actually very surprised with his ability to do certain things,” Ellerbe said. “If he chooses to, he definitely has a future in boxing – if he chooses to. To be able to last as long as he did, he’s a very tough competitor. He has a big heart and, again, he’s showed a lot.

“Especially with this being his professional debut. He did the UFC proud, he did his country proud, and he should definitely keep his head up high.”

“Pay-per-view sales are looking very good,” Ellerbe said. “Everything is tracking very good. We should have a good indication early next week and we’ll be able to talk about that.

“Overall, it was a terrific promotion. I think both guys did a really good job. We kickstarted it with the tour, and I think that’s what generated all the interest from the fans across the world.”
