Logan Paul is unsure of the regulations for his upcoming blockbuster fight.
Logan Paul has admitted that he has yet to learn the regulations of his impending boxing battle with Floyd Mayweather. The exhibition match will take held on June 6 at Miami’s Hard Rock Stadium.
This Sunday, Paul hopes to shock the sporting world by defeating Mayweather for the first time in his professional career.

Paul is still in the dark about the official regulations with only five days till the highly-anticipated showdown.
The match has been described as an eight-round fight with three-minute rounds. That, however, does not appear to have been confirmed to the competitors.
Paul revealed on The True Geordie Podcast to advertise the event that he had no idea how heavy his gloves would be on the night.
“I don’t know how this is feasible, but I don’t know,” he said.
“I’m hearing 10oz, 12oz [gloves], eight rounds, three minutes, and two minutes. I f*****g have no idea.
“We’re ready for anything,” says the group. We held a legitimate camp. We’re doing 10-12 rounds of intense sparring with three different men, and we’re ready.”
Paul is fighting for the first time in his professional boxing career, having been defeated by fellow YouTube sensation KSI in November of this year.
After a majority draw in white-collar competition in August 2018, the Brit won by a split decision.
Despite the daunting task ahead of him, Paul has remained upbeat and has completed a rigorous training camp in preparation for the battle.
The 26-year-old has been practicing with other professionals who can mimic Mayweather’s style, according to The True Geordie Podcast.
Paul stated, “We’ve got a group of pros [to spar with].”
“Some men are brawlers, while others are boxers. We attempt to recruit players who can match Floyd’s speed, or at the very least keep up with him.
“Honestly, we get pros, solid, solid boxers everywhere we look.
“I sparred with [WBA light-heavyweight champion] Jean Pascal, who is really on the undercard. It’s fantastic work, tough guy.
“He was already in Puerto Rico training, and we happened to be in the same gym, so we squeezed in a couple of sessions.”
