Legendary boxing champion Floyd Mayweather is taking another jab at the crypto space by launching a new NFT and Metaverse project called the Mayweverse.
The nonfungible tokens (NFT) will feature the likeness of Mayweather himself and provide various utilities and prizes for holders depending on the rarity of the item. Little more is known about the project at the time of writing other than that the Metaverse will contain a boxing gym.
After many months of hard work
I’m launching my new NFT Project @mayweverse⁰
The collection will have 5,000 NFTs (5 different NFTs cards of 1,000 each).
Each card has a different rarity, utilities & prizes.
More information on the roadmap will be announced soon.

The launch date and prices is yet been determined, but the hype for the project is growing rapidly. The Discord channel dedicated to the project already has over 5,000 members.
Mayweather’s involvement in this new NFT project is notable considering his sub-par record with crypto projects in the past. Mayweather promoted a high-profile crypto scam called Centra Tech which defrauded investors out of over $25 million in 2018. By 2019, Mayweather and co-promoter DJ Khaled were forced to pay $600,000 and $150,000 respectively for their parts in marketing the project.
Twitter personality Coffeezilla claimed that Mayweather is now “frantically deleting evidence of his last NFT scam,” in order to appear to be in good faith for the Mayweverse launch. Other projects he has promoted include Floyd NFT, Bored Bunny, and Bored BAD Bunny.
