The highly anticipated fighting game is targeted for release in early 2022, with the skill-based simulator built on Polygon’s blockchain solution. It has also been announced that boxing icons, Floyd Mayweather and Deontay Wilder, will feature as non-fungible tokens (NFTs), with a host of others to follow in due course. 

The game, which has been given the slogan “Play, watch, earn”, will be powered by a blend of odds, game balancing, outcome maths and logic by Esports Technologies. The unique predictive modelling will provide live in-game data and events to create new gaming products and second-screen experiences for players around the world. 

Bart Barden, COO, Esports Technologies, said: “We look forward to becoming the exclusive in-game data and wagering partner for Turnt Gaming, starting with Taunt Battleworld. We are focused on creating new and engaging ways for players to interact with live content. We can’t wait to start leveraging the power of our quantitative analytics, modeling, and AI platforms and products to unleash a whole new experience for gamers on the blockchain and off.” 

Legendary boxer, Floyd Mayweather, commented: “I’m honored to be one of the first combat sports athletes to appear in Taunt Battleworld and can’t wait to see the game come to life. Taunt Battleworld and Stardam Images are reimagining the future of gaming. I’m proud to be officially part of it.” 

While the esports industry has been growing for a number of years, this represents one of the first agreements with high-profile athletes to star as NFTs. The ability for players to own real-life fighters as NFTs, and use their characteristics against other players, is slated to bring a new level of popularity to NFT gaming.  

Esports Technologies operates online casino and sportsbook brands, such as: Karamba, Hopa and Griffon Casino. The group has over 1.25 million customers in more than 15 countries worldwide.
