- But one bookmaker claims ‘if there is no KO or TKO, winner is decide via a vote’
The rules for Sunday night’s exhibition clash have caused some unrest among the fans, with the Florida State Boxing Commission confirming no official winner will be declared.
There will be no ringside judges present, but the pair can still knock each other out during eight three-minute rounds.
Floyd Mayweather vs Logan Paul could be decided via a vote, according to one bookmaker
But MyBookie, a bitcoin bookmaker, claims in their disclaimer for the fight that it can be decided by a ‘vote’, although it does not state who would be involved in this process.
The site, who are heavily backing the 50-0 star Mayweather to claim a knock-out victory, claim: ‘If no KO or TKO, Winner will be decided via vote.’
The Florida State Athletic Commission’s rules also state that both fighters will wear 12oz gloves, while any headgear will not be permitted.
The exhibition-nature of the fight means Mayweather’s impeccable record in the ring will not be tarnished should he lose the contest, while Paul’s history of 0-1 will remain the same even if he wins.

Retired star Mayweather is stepping in the ring professionally for the first time since 2017
Mayweather is rumoured to be earning in the region of £70million from the fight and has described it as a ‘legal bank robbery’ with many expecting the boxing legend to make light work of Paul.
However, Paul has revealed Sunday’s Miami showdown is far more than an exhibition – and insisted that Mayweather will not have ‘a s*** easy fight’.
Paul’s only previous professional fight is a defeat to fellow YouTuber KSI back in November 2019, which he lost a split decision in Los Angeles.
Mayweather and the YouTuber clashed in the pre-fight meet last month, with Paul’s brother Jake causing a scuffle after he stole the ‘Money’s’ hat during a face-off. Mayweather recently warned Jake he will put him in a ‘neck brace’ if he disrespects him again.
Logan’s brother is also in the boxing scene, as well as being a YouTuber, with the 24-year-old taking on ex-UFC star Tyron Woodley on August 28.
