Floyd Mayweather is expanding his gym business into the Middle East. The visuals from the newest ‘Mayweather Boxing + Fitness’ venue in Dubai have emerged, and as expected, the internet has a few things to say about it.

In late 2022, the boxing gym chain announced that it had signed agreements with two different master franchise firms in the UAE and Japan. The announcement came shortly after he registered his victory over Deji in Dubai that month. For UAE locations, the franchise was led by a popular equity fund with partners Boris Kisko and Patrik Mandzela. Kisko already owned and operated one of the Mayweather gyms in California. 2 years later, the first of these gyms is now open.

The sport’s insider, Boxing Kingdom, uploaded snippets of the Dubai location on their X feed. The gym is located in the Dubai Creek Harbour area, a prime spot, mostly known to be the residential hub of Dubai’s luxury-seeking population. As per its website, its annual membership is currently priced at AED 11,499 ($3,131). The video shows the gym decked in Mayweather Boxing and Fitness signature aesthetics and welcoming lights.

Founded in 2018 by ‘Money’ and his partners Burrel Wilks III and James Williams, Mayweather Boxing + Fitness had almost 65 locations when it announced the UAE expansion. Today, when it has successfully done that, its domestic base has also equally widened.

With multiple centers already established and running in the US, the brand is expanding its base abroad. The Dubai center is one among them. Apart from the UAE and Japan, Mayweather Gyms will reportedly also set up shops in Saudi Arabia, the UK, Uzbekistan, and Kazakhstan in the days to come.

The first Dubai center will perhaps become the blueprint for future international engagements for the brand. Do fans approve of the newest addition to Mayweather’s money-making arsenal?

Fans agree that it looks nice

Well, Boxing Kingdom called it, “Floyd Mayweather’s luxury VIP gym.” However, a fan was clearly unimpressed. They called the setup “basic.”
