Simply, it’s not a big fight unless Lennon is the vocal red carpet to the main event. Jason Keidel: How many Floyd Mayweather fights have you worked. Jimmy Lennon Jr. : Not that many. The first one was Sharmba mitchell in 2005. Then the fights Floyd did with Showtime. I worked all of his fights since he signed with them. Berto will be my 7th Mayweather fight.
