Legendary boxer Floyd Mayweather debuted a VR boxing and fitness game Tuesday at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas that lets fans and fighters face a VR version of Mayweather himself in a digital ring. The game, “Mayweather Boxing & Fitness Virtual Reality Program,” will initially only be available at his Mayweather Boxing Club gyms. However, a home version for anyone with a VR system could be available in time for the 2018 holiday season.

Inside a conference room at the Cosmopolitan Hotel, Mayweather, who retired undefeated with a 50-0 record, performed a live demo.

“This is just the beginning, introducing everyone to what we’re going to do in the future,” he said during a news conference afterward. “This is just a small demo, but by the time we reach everyone at home or they com to the gym, it’s going to be amazing.”
