Just a couple of weeks ago, two of the world's biggest fighters took to the ring.
Floyd Mayweather, undefeated now at 50-0, fought Conor McGregor in the money fight of the century.
The fight, which was one of the most watched fights in boxing history, left both fighters with a somewhat healthy pay packet.
Floyd ‘Money’ Mayweather reportedly took home a tidy sum of $300 million, whilst McGregor netted around $100m.
Nonetheless, the undisputed champion has now decided how his fortunes will be spent.
The 40-year-old retiree has decided that he will now turn his attention to helping disadvantaged people by building state of the art gyms across the US.
The new facilities, set up in areas of misfortune, will be suited with all the latest equipment to help anyone from the young to the old to work out at the highest level.
“Through a scalable business model - which includes an enticing franchisee and affiliate return structure - Mayweather Boxing and Fitness will be in neighbourhoods all over the world, including traditionally undeserved communities.
“Our fitness experience will have programmes fro kids, parents and aspiring athletes - anyone who’s looking to put energy into something positive,” said Mayweather on the topic of his new venture.
The plan for Mayweather is not only to provide these people with a place to train, but also to find a diamond in the rough. It will be the facilities of Mayweather that will present the stage for young talent all over the globe.
With the recent fight between himself and “The Notorious”, and even other fights within the sport, it has left millions of people in love with the sport.
Alongside the facilities, however, athletes will be given the best of training. The training programmes on offer will mirror the workout of Mayweather himself and give athletes the chance to learn from the best, and even be the best.
As Floyd is proud to announce: “The training programmes will be the best in the industry.”
A brilliant touch from a boxer with it all. The money, the fame, and an impressive record. It just goes to show that despite his billions, gluttony is not apparent.
Class act from a simply class boxer.
