I think the majority of America was severely disappointed in Mayweather vs. Paul last night. It was boring, as it was essentially a glorified sparring match. What caught a lot of people's attention was Logan Paul's Charizard chain he wore in his walkout.
I don't know anything about Pokemon cards. All I know is some of them go for a ridiculous amount of money. According to Goldin Auctions, that Charizard card is worth approximately $1 million.
Paul bought this card for $150,000 last year.
Again, I don't know anything about Pokemon cards, but I'm assuming this is the equivalent of a Mickey Mantle rookie card. The fact that he bought it for $150,000 and the estimated worth is now around $1 million is crazy. Does it go up even more considering he made it into a chain?
Although the fight was boring, I need to give my props to Logan Paul. He fought one of the best boxers of all time and went the distance. He might've been knocked out, but hey, people are going to remember him going all 8 rounds with Floyd Mayweather.
Anything is possible if Logan Paul, a YouTube star, can turn a hobby into a full-blown boxing pay-per-view that grabs the attention of people around the world. Need to tip my cap to Mr. Paul.
