Mayweather Boxing opens on Monday

Mayweather Boxing + Fitness held a soft open for existing customers, friends and family this week and will open for new clients on Monday, Jan. 9, at 97 Reade. The company took the former Exceed fitness space last March.

The gym is offering classes only for now — something like three in the morning, one at noon and three in the evening, said studio manager Mark Delannoy (that’s him on the right with salesman Terrell Dixon). They also offer personal training. More TK when they are ready for visitors; in the meantime find more info here.

The company is franchised, with nine outlets in California but only a couple here: Midtown and Manhasset on Long Island.

A quick boxing education: Floyd Mayweather Jr. (his father was also a boxer) competed between 1996 and 2015 and is regularly ranked among the top boxers of all time, pound-for-pound. He’s won 15 major world championships from super featherweight to light middleweight, a bronze medal at the 1996 Olympics and three U.S. Golden Gloves championships. Over the years, he was also regularly ranked as one of the highest paid athletes by Forbes and the highest paid pay-per-view athlete of all time.

The gym combines boxing, strength and cardio conditioning. Mayweather opened the first one in 2018 in SoCal.

Exceed left that space in October 2020; they took over the eastern side of Bell Bates in 2013.
