Fan Pays £50k To Walk Logan Paul Into The Ring For His Next Fight
| Last updated
A fan has paid a staggering fee of £50,000 to walk out into the ring with Logan Paul ahead of his next fight.
Paul has yet to announce his next opponent, but has offered a place on his ringwalk as part of the 99 Originals NFT project.
The YouTuber took 99 polaroid pictures from different scenes of his life and is auctioning them off one by one, with the latest being a photo of his injured hand after hitting a punching machine while drunk that sold for a staggering $62,000 USD (£50,000).
After the photo was purchased, it was revealed that the anonymous winner bidder will be able to choose the colour of Paul's robe and boxing shorts for his next fight and, even more incredibly, walk out with him into the ring.
As stated on the official 99 Originals Instagram account, the perks for the anonymous bidder includes them 'choosing color of Logan Paul’s next Robe & Shorts outfit', 'walking Logan Paul out to next fight' and 'receiving NFT & physical 1/1 Polaroid'.
But moving matters back to the present day, Paul is currently training alongside his younger brother Jake, with the latter preparing for a fight against a to-be-confirmed opponent in Madison Square Garden.
Tommy Fury is being heavily tipped as his next opponent, with the original fight between the pair postponed in December. Fury had to withdraw from the fight after suffering from a chest infection and a broken rib.
Jake has now turned professional within the sport, but it is understood that his brother is unlikely to follow in his footsteps.
Paul had agreed to fight Brazilian social media star Whindersson on Twitter, but negotiations are yet to begin.
Paul has already fought fellow YouTuber KSI twice, and the pair drew in a white-collar bout in 2018 before Paul lost the rematch a year later.
He then took part in an exhibition match with Floyd Mayweather last summer, but the fight in Miami was not scored.
Things have since got very ugly between the pair, with Paul claiming Mayweather still owes him 'millions of dollars' following the fight and plans to take him to court.
In quotes published by talkSPORT, Paul indicates the identity of his next opponent is irrelevant as he targets a quick return to the ring.
He said: “Hopefully by the end of this year. I’m in training and just trying to balance. If you do too much, you don’t do anything at all.
“To be honest, after Mayweather, where do you go from here? I don’t really care. I just want to fight. I want to fight someone, I want to knock someone out."
