Floyd Mayweather and Logan Paul rule change days before exhibition fight

50-0 undefeated boxer Floyd Mayweather returns to the ring for the first time in four years this Sunday, where he will face YouTube personality Logan Paul over eight rounds.

The bout was due to take place in February but had to be delayed twice because of the coronavirus pandemic.

The 12-time World Champion officially retired in 2016, after defeating fellow American Andre Berto by unanimous decision to retain his WBA, WBC and The Ring welterweight titles.

He has been tempted back into the ring since then though, to face Conor McGregor in which Mayweather was victorious forcing a 10th-round stoppage.

But now, days before he is set to return to the ring, the rules have been changed for his upcoming bout with Paul.

It has been announced that both fighters have agreed to a rule change that will see their 12-ounce gloves reduced to a lighter 10-ounces.

Earlier this week it was revealed that the upcoming bout will have no official winner unless a knockout occurs.

This is because there will be no ringside judges and so the fight will not be recognised by the local commission.

Despite Mayweather's superior boxing record, Logan Paul has been backed by 80 percent of the bets placed on Ladbrokes to win the fight.

Paul has only boxing professional boxing bout to his name and is 0-1 after being beaten by fellow YouTuber KSI back in November 2019.

The fight takes place on June 6 with the ring walks expected to take place at around 4am BST.
