TikTok star Bryce Hall has officially challenged Hype House manager Thomas Petrou to a boxing match, with a $500,000 purse on the line if they fight on the Mike Tyson vs. Roy Jones Jr undercard. 

Ever since KSI and Logan Paul first squared off inside a boxing ring, the sweet science has become the go-to idea for anyone looking to settle a beef. It doesn’t matter if its a growing content creator or a superstar, the idea of a boxing match has been put forward.

In recent weeks, Bryce Hall has been trying to get Hype House manager Thomas Petrou to accept his challenge. The 21-year-old claimed that Petrou “doesn’t want to do that type of stuff” and is “scared” of getting embarrassed.

However, he has now issued a further challenge to the Hype House manager, claiming that they could fight on the undercard of the Mike Tyson vs. Roy Jones Jr exhibition.

In his August 13 video, Hall said he was addressing Petrou for the last time in his videos by making him an offer that he “cannot deny.”

Hall continued: “I challenge you to a legitimate boxing match. Eight rounds, three-minute rounds, scored professionally.” He added that he’s talked to Triller, and they could add the bout to the Tyson vs. Jones on November 28.

“It’s a pretty big f**king deal. The entire world is going to be tuned into it,” Bryce added. “I will be donating $500,000 to any charity of your choice if you beat me. If I win, I’ll donate the $500,000 to any charity my fans choose to vote on. It’s a win-win situation, dude.”

The 21-year-old further taunted Petrou by asking if he was going to let down “millions” of people in need for “selfish reasons” and refusing to fight. 

Whether or not the pair will square off is unknown, as the Hype House manager hasn’t yet responded, but they would join an intriguing undercard if it happened. 

Jake Paul and former NBA star Nate Robinson would be the featured supporting fight, but Hall vs. Petrou would draw pretty interest too.

Logan Paul mindblown after pulling rare Pokemon cards worth $3000

Logan Paul has become an avid Pokemon card collector throughout the latter half of 2020, and treated fans of his Impaulsive podcast to watch him open a rare pack, the contents of which he was delighted with.

The Pokemon Trading Card Game originally got going in 1999 and now, over two decades later, is worth more than ever, with rare cards making sellers hundreds of thousands of dollars if they’ve kept their collection in good condition.

He recently revealed some of the collection he had been building up, including a first edition shadowless Charizard that could fetch anywhere between $40,000 to $60,000 at auction.

Letting his fans into the hobby, Logan opted to buy a pack of Base Set trading cards for $500 online and opened it live on Impaulsive.

Obviously, when you’re spending $500 on a single pack of cards, you’ve got to be pretty hopeful of the results, but Paul insisted he always gets his rarest cards from the seller he bought it from.

So, he opened them and revealed each card one-by-one, including a Squirtle which he expects to fetch around $200-300, perhaps more as he believes it to have a PSA grade of 10 — or, the best condition it could possibly be.

Alongside the regular Energy cards and some more Pokemon such as Gastly and Poliwhirl, Paul also packed a Blastoise, again expecting it to be PSA graded 10/10, which he says should fetch around $2500 — meaning the total value of the individual cards could fetch around $3000 if his valuations are correct.

Obviously, the valuations may be slightly off, but Logan has at least made his money back for this pack — and if he’s made a profit then more power to him.

There’s some serious money to be made in the Pokemon Trading Card Game now, especially as it enjoys somewhat of a resurgence of late, so it might be worth digging out those old cards and see what you’ve got laying around: you never know how much money you could be sitting on.
