The rules of the weigh-in have yet to be officially confirmed – Logan Paul dominated Mayweather in their first showdown.
But Logan Paul claimed on social media that he must be 190 pounds and Mayweather 30 pounds lighter. For every overweight pound, he claimed, he will be fined $ 100,000.
In Mayweather’s previous exhibition match, against Tenshin Nasukawa, the rules also stated that no winner would be officially recognized – but Mayweather knocked him out in one round.
Previously, his 50th and final professional boxing match against Conor McGregor came after a dispute over the size of the gloves.
McGregor had insisted on smaller gloves than the Nevada Athletic Commission typically allowed, but Mayweather agreed to it, and again came out with a stoppage win.
Logan Paul said, “I’m 30 pounds heavier, about six, seven inches taller. Half his age and hungry, and have nothing to lose.
“I’m going in there with this energy, and he has everything to lose. There are a lot of things on the table for him, not a lot on the table for me, and he’s a dangerous man.
“It’s a fight, so anything can happen.”
Former Logan Paul coach Shannon Briggs, the former heavyweight champion, told Sky Sports: “He’s going to shock the world.
“You know what, keep your eyes on this guy.
“I’ve felt his power already. Listen to me, he can hit. I’m telling you, the boy can hit.
“Be careful. That might not be what you all think. The boy can punch.
“He’s the big Floyd Mayweather, but this kid is taller, and he has a few quick punches.”
