1988 Olympic ResultsEllis began his professional career in 1989 and later moved up two weight classes. He came up short in his only attempt at a major title--a 1997 loss to IBF Light Middleweight titleholder Raúl Márquez via TKO in the fourth round. However, Ellis did outbox the heavily favored Vince Phillips in a non-title bout and earned a victory by decision. In 1998 Ellis took on Fernando Vargas and was TKO'd in the second round. Ellis lost his next fight, in 2001, and retired with a record of 24-4-1 with 17 knockouts.
