Ellis 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 Title holder Raúl Márquez via TKO in the 4th. However, he did outbox the heavily favored Vince Phillips in a non-title bout and earned the decision. In 1998 he took on Fernando Vargas and was TKO'd in the 2nd round. He lost his next fight, in 2001, and retired with a record of 24-4-1 with 17 KO's.
