YouTuber Logan Paul has been on Floyd Mayweather’s case over paying him for their June exhibition bout – and it’s no surprise, having heard he wasted $3.5m on a box of FAKE Pokemon cards.
Paul has continued to take to social media to claim that he hasn’t seen a penny of what he was due to be paid for fighting Floyd Mayweather in an exhibition boxing match six months ago.
Though the Ohio-born social media star, who is the brother of up and coming boxer Jake Paul, is understood to be worth in excess of $20m, he may well have wasted a sizeable chunk of that fortune on a box of fake Pokemon cards.
A report by Pokebeach has gone into detail over the various red flags surrounding the sale of the box of cards, which were valued in excess of $2m but were initially up for sale on eBay, with $30 shipping and no insurance.
There are several other more intricate details that suggested that they were fake, but that didn’t stop Paul from forking out a whopping $3.5m. in order to make them his. He’s now attempting to discover whether they are legitimate or not…
