If you’ve ever wanted a piece of boxing’s biggest mouth, Floyd Mayweather, you’ll want to get ready to play Wild Poker. ONE Entertainment has announced that it’s partnered with Mayweather to become a literal part of the game, both as a “presenter” and as a player.

Floyd will be brought into the mobile game as a presenter, or a helper for players who offers tips and who introduces new hands. In addition, he’ll also appear as a poker player, providing gamers with a chance to do what no one else has been able to: KO the champ!
By the way, from what TMZ is reporting, Floyd inked a six-figure salary to grace the game as well as scored a deal to earn additional bucks based on game revenue. He may have a snarky attitude, but he also knows his biz.
From the PR:
“Merging the mobile gaming experience with Brand Mayweather was an organic fit. ONE Entertainment looks forward to introducing Wild Poker to Floyd’s 50 million plus global fan base. This partnership is a sneak preview of the future of the brand’s diverse and entertainment-fueled portfolio post-fighting,” stated Mayweather International Brand Manager and ONE Entertainment CEO Brent A. Johnson, JD.
Wild Poker is a social casino adventure game that offers Texas Hold’em Poker with a unique twist. On top of the regular card game, Wild Poker adds elements of strategy and adventure such as real-time decision-making, power-ups, journey, character development and more to increase the fun and overall exhilaration factor. Players must embrace the spirit of their favorite animal characters and strategically deploy special skills, such as the shark’s sharp sense of smell to detect another player’s fear or the giraffe’s elongated neck to peer over another player’s shoulder. As players advance in the game, they level up and unlock new characters with different abilities and go on a journey that no traditional casino-style game can offer.
