Rules For June 6th Fight Between Floyd Mayweather And Logan Paul Announced

If you thought that the upcoming Floyd Mayweather vs. Logan Paul fight was going to be like a Rocky movie, you were sorely mistaken.

Today it was announced that the fight, which is scheduled to take place June 6th at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami, will have a number of stipulations that might not make a lot of fans happy.

The “exhibition fight” has a number of somewhat outlandish stips attached to it, including:

No winner will be declared (the most confusing one)
Potential KO will be up to Official
Eight 3-minute rounds
No headgear
No judges
12 oz. gloves

If that doesn’t get you excited for this ‘fight,’ then nothing will. (*eye roll*)

It makes no sense that these two guys are willing to get into the ring, put on gloves and go at each other, and yet when it’s all said and done, there won’t be a winner.

It also seems impossible that Mayweather could ever lose this fight. He has both the experience and the ability to dance around Paul and pepper him with punches.

The fight itself should still be interesting though, despite the odd rules.

  1. Can the punch each other in the head? I heard a while ago there were no head shots. I hope that was bs. Won’t be watching either way but a boxing match without headshots ain’t a boxing match. I guess some folks will find out on the sat.
