Mayweather Promotions was approved Wednesday for a Nevada promoters license at the Nevada State Athletic Commission meeting in Las Vegas. Floyd Mayweather and Leonard Ellerbe appeared in person before the commission. Speculation that Floyd would be “grilled” about brushes with the law or personal financial information proved unfounded as commissioners quickly and unanimously approved the application leaving Floyd unscathed. Mayweather Promotions was also recently approved for a promoters license by the New York State Athletic Commission.
Mayweather’s September 13 rematch against Marcos Maidana at the MGM Grand will again be under Golden Boy’s license, but after that Floyd will be free to promote his own fights in Nevada without enlisting outside help.
