Paul shared a video post on Instagram where he showcased the ‘Sleepy McGregor chain’ custom made by Benny the Jeweler. Furthermore, news came out via Full Violence that Jake Paul would be sending Dustin Poirier the chain as a gift. Dustin ‘The Diamond’ is reportedly going to be auctioning off the chain for his charity, ‘The Good Fight Foundation’.

As mentioned earlier, the ‘Sleepy McGregor’ chain was crafted for $100,000 and the sale proceeds will benefit the charity. Moreover, Poirier always auctions off his fight kit which will also fetch a fair amount of money.

‘The Problem Child’ will clearly stop at nothing when it comes to getting under the skin of his rivals. Paul has been targeting McGregor for a boxing match for a meaningful period of time.

Jake Paul has offered Conor McGregor $50 million to fight him as the A-side, an offer that very few celebrity boxers can match. However, after McGregor’s second straight loss to Poirier, Jake Paul seems to have reneged on his offer. There doesn’t seem to be much inclination to make that fight happen now that McGregor has seemingly lost a step.
