“When you’re undefeated there isn’t a moment where you can accept anything less than perfection,” said Mayweather in a recent press release. “And so I’m partnering with the best mobile gaming company out there in Skillz while bringing my latest tech venture Stardam Images to knockout advertising. The best of the best, with the best. Who’s ready to make some money in my tournaments?”
Skillz is trying to raise the bar for how brands, celebrities, and nonprofits connect with their fans. A wealth of popular names and brands host competitions on Skillz. Seeing Floyd Mayweather join names like T-Mobile, Steve Young, Jerry Rice, and even the American Cancer Society is pretty awesome for sure.
21 Blitz is the name of the game, and it operates as a mix of blackjack and solitaire. If you think you have what it takes, you can check it out on the Skillz website.
