In a career filled with big fights, Floyd Mayweather will enter the boxing ring one last time on Saturday night, as he takes on UFC star Conor McGregor. The match is expected to challenge the all-time pay-per-view record of 4.6 million buys—it’s already breaking the internet—and both men will likely make more than $100 million each for what probably will be a mismatch between Mayweather, the best boxer of his generation, and McGregor, who’s making his boxing debut.
Luckily for the 40-year-old Mayweather, who claims once again that this will be his final fight, he already has a retirement plan. As Forbes reports, Mayweather—who could end his career by making as much as a billion dollars—is set to unveil in September a new chain of boxing gyms called Mayweather Boxing and Fitness that will include a training app featuring Mayweather as the digital trainer.
According to a news release, the flagship gym location will open this fall in southern California with plans for 500 brick-and-mortar gyms within the next five years.
But Mayweather is also looking to the future. That’s why he’ll launch a mobile app and a virtual-reality experience that will feature Mayweather walking customers through his own training routines and methods.
“We’ve seen a shift in the fitness industry, in that the average consumer is seeking access to the same training that elite athletes have available to them; and more studios and gyms are now dedicated to a specific discipline,” James Williams, CEO of Mayweather Boxing and Fitness, said in a statement. “Within those offerings, boxing fitness is a highly popular and extremely effective workout. We are excited to cater to this demand all over the world and be a meaningful part of the next-generation fitness experience; all under the banner and guidance of the most dominant boxer of all time.”
As CNN notes, Mayweather’s app will be free, but if you want to access Mayweather’s workouts, you’ll have to pay for an in-app subscription.
