Logan Paul shocked many in the boxing community after surviving eight rounds with the undefeated Floyd Mayweather Jr. in an exhibition bout on Sunday, but the YouTube star attributed his good luck to a unique – and apparently very pricey – piece of jewelry.
Paul was asked by reporters in a post-match press conference about the necklace he wore walking up to the ring at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami: a diamond-encrusted chain that carried containing a rare Pokemon card.
"This is a Pokemon card. It’s a BGS 10 Charizard, first edition Charizard. It’s one of three in the world. It is my prized possession," Paul said.
"Ever since I got this graded at a 10, the momentum in my life has been crazy. It’s my good luck charm, my prized possession. Estimated value, now... I mean, s---, this is a million-dollar card, baby."
Paul, a Pokemon enthusiast, recently unboxed $2 million worth of rare first-edition cards in a live stream event where two holographic Charizard cards turned up.
