Logan Paul Vs Mayweather Rules
The fight will last up to eight rounds, each of which will last three minutes. Both Mayweather and Paul will be wearing 12-ounce gloves, but neither will be wearing a helmet during the fight.
Because of the vast weight difference between the two men, the fight is an exhibition rather than an official match. However, there will be restrictions, as Paul, 26, revealed this week that he will be limited to a maximum weight of 190 pounds in the ring, or face a $100,000 fine for each pound he exceeds.
On the other hand, Mayweather, regarded as one of the best pound-for-pound fighters of all time, is expected to weigh in at 160 pounds on Sunday, a career high for the 44-year-old.
No Judges And No Winner
The biggest piece of news is that there will be no winner at the end of the fight. As a result, there is no need for judges.
Knockouts Are Permitted
Even if there is no official winner, there may be a stoppage. This could happen by knockout, which is legal, or at the discretion of the referee.
