The fight's promoter, Bryce Holden, told USA TODAY Sports earlier Wednesday that he has not sent any requests to the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulations (TDLR).

The TDLR is in charge of combat sports in Texas and decides whether a fight is a professional one, an exhibition one, or not approved at all.

Holden, who is the owner of Holden Boxing LLC, wouldn't say if he wants the fight to be a professional one or a practice one.

The fight is going to happen at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. This is where the Dallas Cowboys play.

Holden said, "It's just been conversations to figure out what's possible and what's not, and then we've talked to the camps (of Tyson and Paul).

The number of rounds, whether they will last two or three minutes, and the weight of the gloves are still up in the air. It is also not clear if the fight will be a real professional fight or just a showcase.

The TDLR wouldn't say if the fight between Tyson and Paul would be a professional fight, a practice fight, or what the rules would be.
