Controversial YouTuber Logan Paul is breaking the boxing mold by throwing yet another major athletic live event on YouTube - but this time, he’s inviting a slew of internet stars to put their speed on the line for a massive charity drive.
Logan Paul’s “Challenger Games” is set to pit some of the net’s top entertainers against one another for a whopping $100,000 in a star-studded track and field event.
Paul’s Games will feature such events as the 4x100 meter relay, long jump, shot put, 100 meter hurdles, and even a four-way tug-of-war competition, with cash prizes being awarded for winners to donate to a charity of their choosing.
The Challenger Games are set to throw down on July 27 at the Veterans Memorial Stadium at Long Beach College.
The Games are set to throw down at 5 PM PDT (8 PM EST / 1:00 AM BST), so be sure to set an alarm to tune in on the action!
Paul’s competition will feature a plethora of internet entertainers, with names like YouTuber RiceGum, Instagram star Sommer Ray, former Call of Duty pro Censor, and American professional boxer Ryan Garcia, among other top stars.
Jake Paul has even offered $300,000 to anyone who can beat him in a race - an amount he may have to be willing to part with, as both he and Logan have suffered injuries just ahead of the Games.

Paul claimed that he’d injured his hamstring while guarding rapper Snoop Dogg during a charity basketball game prior to his track and field competition, but is determined to weather the storm despite his wounds.
Jake Paul is in a similar pickle, having sprained his ankle during a casual basketball game in Aspen, Colorado, leaving both Paul brothers handicapped before one of YouTube’s most hyped-up events of the year.
Paul’s Challenger Games began with a simple Tweet claiming that he was the fastest YouTuber, and has since grown into a major competition that will see a long list of celebrity faces - but there’s no telling if it will outperform Paul’s 2018 boxing match against KSI, just yet.
