Prior to making his first walk to the boxing ring, Paul already had cosmic fame through his YouTube channel. In 2019, ‘The Problem Child’ staggered his subscribers and vast fanbase by posting a video of surgery worth $300,000.

In this video, Paul asserted he saw a rapper on Instagram who had an auto-tune implant. Seeking inspiration from him, the young gun decided to implant a camera on his left forearm to shoot for his primal vlogs and other content.

He even filmed the entire process of this surgery and took it to his official YouTube handle.

In the video posted above, Paul showed the entire surgery, concluding with showing off the actual implanted camera of his forearm. At the end of this video, Paul even shot for a footage with this implanted camera.

But right after this video went viral, the 24-year-old was on the receiving end of huge backlash coming from fans and fellow YouTubers.

Many claimed that this surgery was fake and something like this isn’t technically possible. A fellow YouTuber CallMeMing even added that there was no blood coming out of Paul’s arms after such a gigantic surgery.

Moving on, Paul is now only looking to solidify his run in the boxing world rather than prioritizing anything. He will touch gloves with his long-time foe, Ben Askren, on April 17.
