The ruleset for Floyd Mayweather vs. Logan Paul has now been announced and it is confirmed that there will be no official winner read after the fight.
The 50-0 boxing legend is set to meet the 0-1 YouTuber in an unusual exhibition bout this Sunday in Miami.
For this to take place with their large size difference, the competition had to be an exhibition.
This means that he will not appear on either man’s professional record as an official victory and will be fought under special rules.
The Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation is overseeing the competition and a spokesperson told ESPN of the details.
First, the fight lasts only eight rounds. The tours last three minutes as usual.
Floyd Mayweather vs. Logan Paul Rules
- No judges’ scoring competition
- No official winner
- The fight will not go on the official registers
- KOs are allowed
- The referee will stop the fight if necessary
- 10 oz gloves
- No headgear
- Eight three-minute rounds
KOs are allowed, but it will be the only way to get a “win” of any kind.
There are no judges for whether the show holds the distances and, in this case, there will be no official winner’s reading.
It was the same for the Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones Jr show last November.
In this case, the WBC appointed three unofficial celebrity judges who oddly marked the contest by raffle.
Mayweather and Logan will be wearing 10-ounce gloves for the fight, which are the same gloves YouTuber used in his professional fight with KSI.
Being in the smaller weight classes, Floyd has fought most of his career wearing eight-ounce gloves.
They won’t have to wear headgear.
As mentioned above, a KO is the only way to get any real form of “winner” in the contest.
This is probably what Floyd will be aiming for, as he had already won an exhibition knockout fight in Japan in 2018.
