Floyd Mayweather and Logan Paul's hotly-anticipated exhibition bout will not have an official winner -- but knockouts and stoppages have not been ruled out.

Paul, who has only fought professionally once against YouTube rival KSI, will clash with the boxing legend on 6th June.


The 26-year-old YouTuber has already vowed to knock out Mayweather at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami, Florida, before he retires and snubs a potential rematch.

Now, the rules for the exhibition boxing clash have been revealed as neither Mayweather nor Paul will walk away as the 'official winner.'

That's according to a spokesperson for Florida's Department of Business and Professional Regulation, who also told ESPN that Mayweather vs Paul will not have judges at ringside.

But the spokesperson revealed that knockouts were not 'prohibited' in the Mayweather vs Paul fight.

A stoppage to the bout could happen, but the spokesperson said that decision would be down to the referee.

Mayweather and Paul's fight will be broken up into eight rounds, which will last three minutes per round.

The Florida State Boxing Commission has not commissioned the exhibition bout, but the Department of Business and Professional Regulation spokesperson confirmed that a commission referee would officiate the fight.

Mayweather vs Paul won't have any protective headgear and both fighters will compete using 12-ounce gloves.

The exhibition fight would not count towards either fighter's professional records, but a spokesperson did suggest that 'some kind of vote' could be conducted by the promotion to determine the winner.

Mayweather vs Paul will be hosted on Sky Sports Box Office in the UK, which will be priced at £16.95.

The PPV will also be shown on Showtime and Fanmio.

VIP packages for the Mayweather vs Paul PPV fight have also been released online, which have been met with widespread backlash by fans on social media.
