The YouTuber-turned-boxer Logan Paul recently opened up on the Social Gloves pay controversy.
There has been a turmoil around Social Gloves, which is a newly formed combat sports entertainment company, and its alleged owner Austin McBroom has taken the internet by storm over the last few days.
Battle of the Platforms seemed to be a successful pay-per-view event but some fighters recently claimed that the company has not paid them yet. Jake Paul Leaks Francis Ngannou Paycheck?
TikTokers Vinnie Hacker and Josh Richards also went live on the BFFs podcast claiming that Social Gloves has even filed for bankruptcy.
Logan Paul advises Austin McBroom
During the latest edition of Impaulsive, Logan, who never fails to stay away from letting his opinion known, has commented on this. He went on to give Austin McBroom some wise advice.
He asked McBroom to take the setbacks such as this on the chin, instead of complaining about it. He also gave the example of how he dealt with the failure of his 2019 Challenger Games, which was hosted for charity purposes.
He then said that it was a mistake to charge a pay-per-view price as high as $58 for the event. Logan said:
“… The Social Gloves kids made a mistake. Jake and I both have had a little bit of a track record with boxing now… but going to fight for your very first time when people don’t know how you look, and by the way, not as popping as you think, and charging $58 for it was f***ing stupid, dude. We were sitting right here in the garage, right here just behind the cameras and Austin [McBroom] was like, ‘Yeah dude, two and a half million buys’. I’m like, ‘It’s bold, what’s your price point?’ [Austin McBroom said] ’58 dollars’. I said ‘What the f***?’,” Logan Paul stated.
The event took place on Saturday, June 12, 2021, at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida. We will have to see how the situation progresses.
