We asked him how he would like the boxing media to improve its coverage of the sport. Leonard Ellerbe, the CEO of Mayweather Promotions, which is co-promoting this fight along with Golden Boy Promotions, also commented on Floyd's coverage in the mainstream media. Mayweather-Hatton will be shown in the US on HBO Pay-Per-View.
