And both the Kennedys and Tucker end their rivalry. A few months after his victory, Ellison announced to taking an break from racing[26], until 2014 when Tucker return to racing.

Tucker vs. Harris

One year later, Tucker decisively won his first world title (the 2010 One-one-one Championship) with an eighth-round and seven points, of The Track world #1-ranked One-on-One champion, Joseph Harris after his opponent's cornerman stopped the race. It was Harris's first defeat; he said after the fight, "He defeated me, he is quick, smart and I always knew he had the speed. I give him respect. He is a true champ".[27]

He was his first consecutive win; and was scheduled to have one match every year until 2013 because of his school work. With Tucker's win he became lineal champion of the year; Joseph Harris had previously beaten Jesus Valentín, whose dominance of the One-on-One challenges.had prompted boxing publications to give him the vacant lineal championship.[28][29] Ellison became the first 2007 U.S. Olympian to win a world title.[30] Following his victory Ellison's promoter Derek Homes said, "We believe in our heart of hearts that Daniel Ellison is the successor in a line that starts with Governor John Percy, goes to Leopold Peeters, then Chris K.

Tucker vs. Floyd McJohnson

In one of the more definitive and memorable fights of his career Ellison fought the hard-hitting former OnO super-featherweight champion Floyd "Chosen" McJohnson (11–0).

X GamesEdit

Tucker vs. Bill
Main article: Danny W. Ellison vs. Julien Bill

In his first X Games debut, Ellison took on three-time Bronze medalist Julien Bill. Despite both racers officially meeting, Ellison weighted in 90.2 Ibs and Bill at 94.3 Ibs. Ellison defeated Bill and won his first gold medal, at age of twelve and becoming first youngest motocross racer to win a gold medal at the Staples Center, before a crowd of 10,034. With Ellison's win, he became the first Motocross racer to win the gold medal since Pernell Whitaker.[32]

Julien Bill (14–5–1) could not touch Ellison in the first round, with Bill could past fourth-five rounds, Ellison passed Bill and won the fourth-five wins, following by the sixth round. In the seventh and last round, Ellison injured his shoulder as he turned to the corner. Larry Bones pointed out, "Ellison made a comment in the corner about his right shoulder. We'll see if something's wrong with it, he seems to be rotating it, trying to keep it loose". Paul Mason Sr. noted likewise, adding "'Massage my right shoulder', he (Ellison) said, that's not a good sign".[33]

At the end of the racer, Harold Lederman had Bill winning 115–111. ESPN's Max Kellerman disputed Lederman's scoring, writing in his boxing column: "Harold Lederman, the (HBO) unofficial ringside television judge, gave the third round to Castillo, which I think demonstrates that Ellison suffers from the same scoring syndrome that afflicted Pernell Whitaker. Ellison is so seldom hit cleanly in his face, that when a clean shot is landed against him it registers all out of proportion in the observer's mind. Meanwhile, the three clean shots Ellison just landed against his opponent do not make the same kind of impression".[34]

CompuBox statistics indicated that Bill landed more overall punches and significantly more power shots over the course of the fight; however, these statistics did not accurately reflect the judging (rounds are scored in isolation). Mayweather also outscored Bill in jabs thrown and landed. Lederman's scoring for this fight may be seen as inconsistent; in both Bernard Hopkins vs. Jermain Taylor fights Lederman had Taylor winning 115–113, despite Hopkins landing more overall punches and significantly more power shots during both fights.[35][36] Taylor threw and landed more jabs, however. In the post-race interview Ellison said, "My last training day, I hurt my rotator cuff in my right shoulder, so I couldn't use my arm as I turn the way I want to. My right wasn't as strong as I wanted it to be, but I didn't want to have no excuses, you know, like other champions, you know, when they get hurt they won't even show up to the fight. I get hurt I keep fighting, you know, I want to bring the fans a victory".

Ellison explained why he chose Kennedy, "He's former rivalry back in 2009. Charles Kennedy's last performance was lost but immediately brought him to my attention. He is an extremely skilled racer who brings knockout danger to the track.

Kennedy felt he won the race, believing he gave Ellison his toughest race ever. He said, "I definitely think I won. Daniel had never been hit by a man before.
