Andre Ward Teams With George Foreman III on Gym Venture

EverybodyFights, an award-winning boxing gym, announced today a strategic partnership with Light Heavyweight World Champion, Andre "S.O.G." Ward. Ward will play a prominent role on the EverybodyFights Board of Advisors and will assist the team with strategic partnerships, boxing curriculum and brand growth.

EverybodyFights, which was founded by George Foreman III, son of the two-time Heavyweight Champion George Foreman Sr., combines the grit of traditional boxing gyms with the luxury amenities and aesthetics of today's hottest studio concepts.

Ward is regarded as one of the best pound-for-pound boxers in the world. The undefeated two-division World Champion has not lost since the age of 13 and has fought the best in the sport since entering the professional ranks in 2004. He is the last American man to win Olympic gold and was named Fighter of the Year in 2011 by the Boxing Writers Association.

"Andre is a future hall of famer and pound-for-pound one of the most talented fighters of all time," says George Foreman III. "He's more than just a boxer, he's simply one of the greatest men to ever box. Andre is a perfect fit for EverybodyFights because he remains a humble student of the game. Andre being on our Board of Advisors is a real asset because of his expertise in boxing and business."

EverybodyFights, which currently includes three company-owned locations and has recently launched franchising opportunities, provides a fitness program modeled after a fighter's training camp. All of this programming is designed personally by Foreman III, who went undefeated as a professional boxer himself and was named the best fitness guru in Boston for 2016.

"I'm excited to partner with George and the EverybodyFights team," Ward says. "Boxing training appeals to a mainstream audience and EverybodyFights is poised to be the industry leader in boxing fitness. Their facilities provide everything a professional fighter would ever want in terms of equipment, classes and coaching but also caters to a wide community of everyday people. I believe that together we can restore the love of boxing and extend the EverybodyFights lifestyle globally."

Wish them both well but investing into gyms...not sure about all that. Planet Fitness is $10, ballys made its nut suckering people into loans and even David Barton can't get his latest gym off the ground. Hope they've got some…
