As we probably all know by now, Floyd Mayweather will fight YouTuber Logan Paul in some kind of boxing exhibition.
The fight is scheduled to take place in Japan on February 20, but no one knows exactly what the rules will be for the “clash”.
The announcement of the fight divided boxing fans – one saying it’s bad for sport while others welcoming the new fan base that will be watching this.
Many were concerned that, with the fight being an exhibition, the fighters may be restricted in what they can and can’t do but, fortunately, it seems that will not be the case.
In an interview with The Sun, the founder and CEO of Fanmio – the organization broadcasting the fight – outlined that it will be a ‘real fight’.
“Floyd trains extensively and I don’t think he’s going to go into this fight and not be prepared. He’s very excited for the fight,” said Solomon Engel.
“He sees some big opportunities here, and I don’t want to speak for him but I think we all feel this could be a very historical fight and a number of different levels.”
“This is a real fight. And whoever wins, wins. Certainly, there could be a knockout, yes.
“I think it will be a very competitive fight. And to be clear, we have Floyd who is the best fighter, and Logan who is a new fighter.
“But, Logan does have some size difference, he’s many inches taller, many pounds heavier and when you look at the size and how that could affect the match, there’s really no telling what the outcome could be.
“I do think that it will be competitive because Floyd has an incredible amount of skill and he’s going to bring that to the table and Logan has size.
“It’s like the David vs Goliath story – and we all know the outcome of that. But we don’t know what the outcome will be here.”
