Although Mayweather and Paul had originally agreed to fight using 12 oz. gloves, they have now opted to wear 10 oz. gloves in an effort to maximise the likelihood of a knockout. However, a victor will not be declared even if a victory is recorded in the last seconds of the fight.
The rest of their bout will be fairly similar to a standard boxing match. The fight is set to last eight, three-minute rounds, and there will be no protective gear worn by either fighter.
Although Mayweather is the odds-on favourite to win, Paul has been handed a reprieve of sorts by the freshly inducted Hall of Famer.
Weigh-ins are coming up, and predictions have Mayweather coming in at around 160 pounds. Paul, meanwhile, can eat as much as he likes and still be considered healthy at a maximum of 190 pounds.
