LOGAN PAUL reckons he may have spent a staggering £2.8million on FAKE Pokemon cards.
The YouTuber turned boxer has amassed quite the collection of cards over the years and is no stranger to showing them off.
But avid collectors of the pricey memorabilia have questioned the authenticity of the 26-year-old's collection, which has prompted him to schedule a visit to authentication company BBCE.
He tweeted: "Update on this: I’m flying to Chicago this weekend to verify the case with BBCE, the company who insured its authenticity. to be continued…"
Paul's most cherished Pokemon card is his shiny Charizard – which he bought for a whopping £110,000.
The Maverick donned the plastic-covered card as a necklace as he made his way to the ring for his exhibition bout with boxing legend Floyd Mayweather last June.
Paul ended up going the distance with the former five-weight world champion, but his shiny Charizard proved to be one of the biggest talking points among boxing fans.
One tweeted: "Mayweather had Blastoise I take it?"
