The Floyd Mayweather vs. Logan Paul fight won’t have any official backing from either of their respective organisations.
On June 6, Mayweather and Paul will fight in Miami’s Hard Rock Stadium. This is an exhibition match, and we know there will be eight 3-minute rounds, but we don’t know if there will be judges. Today, we have more information than ever before.
Even though the state of Florida’s Department of Business and Professional Regulation is providing a referee for Mayweather vs. Paul, they are not in charge of supervising the match. As there will be no judges present at this unofficial battle, the referee will have the authority to end the action at any time. Boxers will spar without helmets and use 12-ounce mitts. There will be no winner declared in any formal sense.
Let’s have a Look at the Fundamental Guidelines.
- An Eight Round Fight of Three Minutes Each
- This fight has not been approved by the Florida Boxing Commission.
- To Put It Simply, There Won’t Be Any Judging
- A Fight Can Be Stopped by the Referee.
- Boxers Will Use Gloves That Weigh Twelve Ounces.
- No Helmets Will Be Used in the Ring
- No Official Winner Will Be Declared
The Florida State Boxing Commission has provided an explanation for why Mayweather vs. Paul is not considered a professional fight. The commission ruled that, per their regulations, the contest could not go forward because of the obvious imbalance in size and experience levels between the two competitors. According to the commission, the promoter is free to use any voting mechanism they choose to “crown a winner,” but the results will not be recognised.
It’s clear that Mayweather has more boxing experience than Paul does. Mayweather is a boxing Hall of Fame elect, who concluded his pro career with a perfect record of 50-0. In several other categories, he was previously crowned world champion.
Paul, on the other hand, has had only two bouts total (one as a professional and one as an exhibition). In both matches, KSI, another YouTuber, was the opponent. On a split decision, Paul’s professional fight ended in defeat.
