UPDATE 9/16/2020 2:19 PM PST: It has been confirmed that YouTube star Logan Paul will officially face off with former pro boxer and current boxing promoter Floyd Mayweather in an exhibition match, as broken by American sports analyst Pat McAfee via Twitter.

Thus far, reports have slated the bout for Winter 2020, although a specific date and other details have yet to be determined.

Original story below:


YouTuber Logan Paul is more than an online influencer; the social media star has also taken his talents to the boxing ring, and as speculation regarding his next fight amps up, ‘imPaulsive’ co-host Mike Majlak is teasing a huge announcement.

Logan Paul first went pro for his second fight with rival YouTuber KSI in November, throwing down in the Los Angeles Staples Center on an all-professional undercard that signaled a potentially bright future in boxing for both competitors.

However, considering the current state of world affairs, many fights have been postponed — including the upcoming Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones Jr. bout, the undercard of which Jake Paul is also set to fight on.

Big brother Logan’s own boxing career has seemed rather empty in comparison, with the star not discussing his own training regimen and seeming to focus on his podcast instead; but this may be changing in the near future.

After challenging other YouTubers to a potential wrestling match, some outlets have reported that he may be taking on the likes of Floyd Mayweather and Josh Bruenecker, although these claims have yet to be proven true.

Considering all the speculation going around, Mike Majlak addressed the issue during a September 15 episode of the ‘imPaulsive’ podcast — and his words are further fueling rumors of a massive bout in Logan Paul’s future.

“The people watching this episode… if any of those people knew what I know, right now, and what you know, what Mac knows about what’s really going on, the internet would f**king melt,” Majlak claimed. “You have no f**king clue.”

Even Logan Paul seemed to tease at something big coming up, saying of his indefinitely-postponed wrestling match: “Have you guys considered that there might be something more important on the horizon than, uh, wrestling a Dolan Twin?”

Paul also confirmed that he and Bruenecker aren’t in talks to fight, claiming that his proposed opponent had texted him asking, “Do you know something I don’t?”

For now, it seems that Logan and co. are keeping his next match under lock and key — but we’ll judge whether it is “melt-worthy” for ourselves when the time comes.

$375,000 Pokemon Trading Card Game box opening ends in absolute tragedy

A Pokemon Trading Card Game livestream ended in disaster after it was quickly discovered that the booster packs were fake. The YouTube channel spent over $375k on the 1st Edition base set box, only for it to be resealed. 

Despite making its debut in 1999, the Pokemon TCG has exploded in popularity over the past two years. The hobby hit an all-time high in October when influencer Logan Paul opened a base set booster box he paid $216k for while livestreaming.

However, things didn’t work out as well for another YouTube channel who paid $375k for the same item. The livestream unboxing of the rare collectible quickly turned tragic when it was discovered that the TCG item was actually fake.

Rare Pokemon TCG box opening ends in complete disaster

The event was hosted by YouTube channel ‘Dumb Money Live’ and included popular Pokemon content creators such as Lee ‘Leonhart’ Seinfeld. The rare 1st Edition base set booster box was bought for a record-breaking $375 through Logan Paul’s collectible trader ‘Collectables Guru.’

“The owner of the box supposedly bought three boxes when he was a child. They sat in the gun safe the entire time,” the Pokemon dealer explained. However, they quickly realized something was amiss after breaking the seal. Several booster packs were different colors, and some weren’t even 1st Edition.

“Oh no. That is a major f**king deal!” Guru exclaimed. The personality opening the box then revealed the problem: “It’s not even base set cards, these are Jungles! Wow. This is a resealed box. It’s random!”

Upset, Collectable Guru called up the seller and explained that the box was resealed. “We opened the box literally live and they’re resealed packs. There is like base set 2 mixed in, half of them are 1st Edition. But they are all resealed, this is absolutely unacceptable. How is this going to be taken care of immediately?”

Stunned by the whole thing, Leonhart stood by and said, “Oh my gosh, I was not expecting that.” Guru came back and updated the group and explained that the seller had two other boxes that they were going to open first before bringing them back to the YouTubers.

The YouTubers were floored after the rare Pokemon box was fake.

To add salt to the wound, the box opening was done on stream for charity. Dumb Money Live gave an update and addressed the situation a day later stating: “I don’t know a single person in my network that hasn’t been defrauded as an investor. You have to give sellers a benefit to make this right.”

At the time of writing, the situation has not been entirely rectified. The channel will open a booster pack on October 30 live to verify that the second box is actually real. However, it appears that if this one is fake as well, the seller claims they will refund the content creators their $375k.
