Logan Paul wore a Charizard Pokémon card around his neck as he made his way to the ring tonight.
The YouTuber is set to take on Floyd Mayweather Jr. in the hotly-anticipated exhibition fight in Miami.
And known for his love of the iconic franchise, he took the card, which he forked out $150,000 on, with him for his entrance.

Maybe the expensive memento will bring him some much needed luck for his bout against one of the greatest boxers ever.
Though the 26-year-old has been seemed pretty confident in the build-up to the event.
Speaking ahead of their exhibition bout at the Hard Rock Stadium, Paul told reporters that he was ultra-confident of ending Money's incredible winning streak.
He said: "There's a moment that goes through every fighter's mind. Everyone we spar, everyone Jake's beat.
"When we hit them, they realise, 'Oh, he might not just do YouTube. This guy really put his heart and soul in this.'
"I hit hard. I think you're going to see Floyd's eyes light up, the first time I hit him."
And who knows, he could be taking on another world champion in the future. Though he doesn't seem too sure about that one.
Last week, the social media star revealed that Tyson Fury had offered him the chance to go toe-to-toe.
Discussing the prospect of taking on the heavyweight champion of the world, he said: "I am so ready for Floyd but one boxer I don't want to fight is Tyson Fury.
"He pitched me in my DMs and said my brother can fight Tommy Fury and I can fight him.
"But I was like, 'No, I'll pass'."
Probably a wise decision.
