Money Mayweather will finally face off against the social media superstar Logan Paul in Miami on Sunday. oddschecker break down the fight and discuss the huge size difference ahead of this much-anticipated event.
Floyd Mayweather vs Logan Paul Stats
It’s just under 40 hours to go until the David v Goliath battle between Floyd ‘Money’ Mayweather and Logan Paul. When you first think of David vs Goliath, one would have Logan Paul as Goliath. The reason being is that Paul is 6ft 2 in height and Floyd Mayweather stands at a mere 5ft 8.
However, it is Logan Paul who is fighting the uphill battle here. Mayweather is one of the finest ring technicians of our time. A man of outstanding pedigree named Manny Pacquiao tried to go at Mayweather and he failed miserably; he landed just 81 punches throughout their entire 12 round fight.
Pacquaio was a world-class boxer in his own right and this was the best he could do. What exactly will a slow and bulky YouTube star be able to do to arguably the greatest boxer of all time?
Mayweather has not fought professionally since 2017 - a knockout victory over UFC star Conor McGregor - to stretch his record to a perfect 50-0. This is an entirely different prospect as Paul will stand a full six inches taller and weigh around 50 pounds more than the former pound-for-pound great when they enter the ring on Sunday night.

Floyd Mayweather vs Logan Paul Rules
Now that they have been released let’s take a look at the official rules for the bout:
- Eight rounds, three minutes each.
- No judges scoring the bout.
- The referee can stop the contest at any time.
- 12-ounce gloves will be used.
- No headgear for either fighter.
- No winner will be declared.
- Logan Paul has agreed to weigh in at 190 lbs.
As of this morning, both fighters have now agreed to use smaller 10-ounce gloves rather than the heavier 12-ounce gloves that were originally agreed upon.
Mayweather claimed that the Paul camp initially campaigned for 14- or 16-ounce gloves. But it appears Mayweather has now got his wish of lighter gloves which should ensure the knockout. It is worth noting that if Logan Paul did manage to land a punch on Mayweather, then the 44-year-old would certainly feel more of an effect with the 10-ounce gloves.
