Logan Paul Says He Doesn’t Know The Rules For His Upcoming Fight With Floyd Mayweather


Logan Paul Says He Doesn’t Know The Rules For His Upcoming Fight With Floyd Mayweather

Logan Paul has admitted he doesn't actually know the rules for his upcoming fight against Floyd Mayweather Jr. and given that it takes place this weekend, he should probably look into that.

The YouTuber-turned-boxer is set to step into the ring with the 50-0 former world champ on Saturday but has recently revealed that he still doesn't have all the details about the fight so has been preparing for 'everything'.

Paul told 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."

Pressed further on the sort of things he's been doing to ready himself for the bout, 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."

Mayweather, 44, is the clear favourite to take the win on Saturday, having never lost a fight in his career, while 26-year-old Paul is yet to win a fight, having drawn in his clash with fellow vlogger KSI and later losing a rematch by a split decision.


The eagerly anticipated fight, which takes place in Miami, is rumoured to be bringing in a lot of cash for Mayweather.

Daniel Keem announced on his YouTube channel DramaAlert that Mayweather is guaranteed $5 million (£3.78m) plus 50 percent of all pay-per-view sales, while Paul will get just a fraction of this.

He said: "My sources are pretty dead on, and my source gave me a text message yesterday saying Mayweather is getting paid $5m up front and 50 percent of all the sales of the pay-per-view.


"Logan is only getting paid $200,000 (£151,200) up front and only five percent of all the sales of the pay-per-view."
