They were initially set to fight in 12-ounce gloves.

But according to Marc Raimondi, they will now do battle in 10-ounce gloves instead – making a knockout more likely.

The other quirky rules, however, remain the same.

There will be no judges scoring the contest.

And therefore, no scorecards read out at the end.

Knockouts ARE allowed, however, during the eight-round bout.

Stoppages will be at the referee's discretion.

A fan vote has even been mooted to determine the winner, although this wouldn't be official.


Logan's brother Jake, who KO'd an out of shape Ben Askren in April, told SunSport: "I think it's great, I think it brings more eyeballs to the sport of boxing. People forget that boxing is entertainment.

"All sports are designed for entertainment even dating back to the Roman Empire, they had Olympics sports for entertainment.

"This is entertaining and I think that Floyd will again severely underestimate my brother, and there's a size advantage, my brother's fast and has knockout power.

"I'm not saying he's going to beat Floyd, I'm not going to say he's going to lose against Floyd.

"But I do think we're going to see a good fight."
