Yes, Logan Paul wore a Charizard Pokémon card to his fight with Floyd Mayweather Jr.

Logan Paul fought Floyd Mayweather Jr. on Sunday night at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami and strangeness reigned throughout.

Of course a fight between a social-media headliner and a real boxing champ was going to spark memes and jokes on social media. Let’s break down the best of the chatter.

Gotta fight ’em all: Charizard card

Logan Paul entered wearing a Pokémon card around his neck — but not just any random Pokémon card. Presumably that’s the first-edition Charizard that Paul bought for $150,000 last year. Let’s say it’s not something your average boxer wears, but viewers noticed.

“LOGAN IS WEARING HIS CHARIZARD CARD,” wrote one Twitter user.

“Did Paul just flash a Charizard? We live in Hell,” said another.

OnlyFans hat

Paul wasn’t the only one wearing something buzzworthy on fight night. Mayweather wore a hat from OnlyFans, the content subscription service often associated with sex workers.

“Logan Paul with the Charizard necklace vs Floyd Mayweather with the OnlyFans Hat this is final boss territory,” wrote one Twitter user.

Biggest entertainer in the world?

Before the fight, Paul got kind of wistful.

“In 2015, I moved to Los Angeles,” he tweeted. “Every morning & every night, I’d look myself in the mirror and repeat 10 times ‘I will be the biggest entertainer in the world.’ I had no idea HOW or WHEN it would happen, but after 6 years of manifestation, it’s happening. Life is a wild ride.”

Life is a wild ride 🥲

Not everyone was down with Paul’s mantra. One Twitter user pulled up the meme that reads, “I ain’t reading all that. I’m happy for u tho. Or sorry that happened.”

Another snarked, “you 5min into the fight when u realise floyd isnt a 45 year old overweight uber eats driver from down the block that u beat up in sparring.”

All about the Benjamins

As always with one of these YouTuber fights, people pointed out that both fighters are raking the money in regardless of how well they did.

“Bro, this is all a gimmick,” wrote one Twitter user. “They came up with this ‘fight’ to make millions. They are laughing at people stupid enough to spend money on this.”
