Mayweather vs Paul : Here are the Rules for the Boxing Match
There will be no professional judges
If you were wondering how the upcoming fight between Floyd Mayweather and Logan Paul would proceed, the rules are already here! First, no official winner of the Mayweather vs Paul fight will be announced. After all, there will be no professional judges.
However, despite this bizarre rule, the Mayweather vs Paul is going to be exciting. After all, knockouts would still apply. So, in case one of the fighters gets knocked out, he will not officially get the “winner” title. But fans can certainly judge who won the Mayweather vs Paul faceoff based on the knockouts.
At the same time, even knockouts will be judged by the referee. So, the referee will decide whether to stop the fight or to let it continue. Labeled as a professional fight, both fighters will wear no headgear.
Mayweather vs Paul rule change
Initially, both fighters were supposed to wear 12-ounce gloves. However, Marc Raimondi, a combat sports reporter states that they will now wear 10-ounce gloves. Since these gloves will have less padding, knockouts are likely.
These Mayweather vs Paul fight rules may have been surprising for the fighters themselves. After all, Logan Paul earlier admitted that he was not sure what the rules of the boxing match are going to be.
Paul said in an interview on the True Geordie Podcast: “I don’t know how this is possible but I do not know.
“I’m hearing 10oz, 12oz [gloves]. I’m hearing eight rounds, I’m hearing three minutes, I’m hearing two minutes, I don’t f***ing know.
“We’re prepared for anything. We did a legit proper camp. We’re doing hard sparring rounds, 10-12 rounds, three different guys, we’re ready.”
He also mentioned the sort of things he’s been doing to ready himself for the boxing match, Paul added: “We’ve got a group of pros [to spar with].
“Some guys are brawlers, some guys are boxers. We try to get guys who can emulate Floyd, or at least keep the pace for small guys.
“Honestly every look we can, we get: pros, solid, solid boxers. I sparred a couple of times, Jean Pascal, who is on the undercard actually. It’s great work, tough guy.
“He was already here in Puerto Rico training, happened to be in the same gym and we got a couple of sessions in.”
According to the current news, the fight will occur at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami. Furthermore, the fight will also be broadcasted on the Sky Sports Box Office in the UK.
