Boxing legend Floyd Mayweather Jr, widely considered to be one of the greatest boxers of all time, will have two exclusive pieces auctioned at NFT BAZL, a first-of-its-kind physical NFT Gallery hosted by Elitium and GDA Capital. The event, held at the auspicious Temple House in South Beach Miami, will be livestreamed in Decentraland, granting fans the world over an opportunity to be a part of the Mayweather Legacy.
“Headlines” is a visual representation of Mayweather’s illustrious career, featuring a rotating 3D head bust of the 50-0 boxing legend and cultural icon. The piece features landmark events throughout the champion’s career, marqueed across the surface of the rendering. This one-of-one NFT was designed by world-renowned artist OYLE and produced by BEYOND. Bidding on “Headlines” will take place within Elitium’s NFT Marketplace, and will be available to event patrons as well as the global community.
The second NFT available for auction will grant the holder access to a pair of boxing gloves to be signed by Mayweather himself at the Bitcoin Conference on June 4 at 1pm. This unique opportunity to obtain a physical piece of Mayweather memorabilia as well as a meet-and-greet will only be available to event patrons.
Of the NFT proceeds, 10% will be donated to the Elika Hope Foundation of Her Royal Highness Queen Diambi Kabatusuila Tshiyoyo Muata of the Democratic Republic of Congo. The donation will be taken from the compensation received by event hosts GDA Capital and Elitium as part of this collaboration.

The Foundation’s mission is to support impactful projects focused on fostering peace and promoting a more equitable distribution of wealth and prosperity, all the while maintaining sustainability as a core value.
NFT BAZL has attracted an illustrious guest list, featuring Queen Diambi and other royals, as well as over 300 guests consisting of art buyers, famous crypto investors, hedge funds managers, and famous celebrities. With NFT BAZL, GDA Capital and Elitium seek to set a new standard for art innovation, with the event’s 300 tickets selling out well in advance. However, staying true to the spirit of decentralization and open networks, the rest of the world will be able to observe and participate through the Decentraland livestream.
