The upcoming fight between the undefeated Floyd Mayweather and social media sensation Logan Paul has many fans on their heels. While Triller made the fight a real possibility, it turns out that the fight will be a bit different than how boxing bouts have been traditionally fought.
As ESPN’s Marc Raimondi had a conversation with Florida’s Department of Business and Professional Regulation, who hold responsibility for the rules and regulations fights go by, it seems that the set of rules that applies for normal boxing fights will be replaced by a new, rather ludicrous one.
As Raimondi shared the rules with the world in a tweet he posted, out of all the ridiculous rule, one rule struck out in particular: the fight will have no official winner. Even though a big part of ShowTime’s publicity for the fight is who gets “bragging rights” as the winner, it seems rather silly that it will not have any official winner at all.
Another shocking rule is that the fight will have no official judges. While there will be a lot of analysis as to how well the two boxers perform, it’s clear that the match will be nothing more than a spectacle. As Paul claims that Mayweather will have “the worst day of his life” in the fight, it seems he would have no official decision to bank his claims on.[Via]
