Top Rank's CEO Bob Arum has made a request to Francisco Aguilar, the current director of the Nevada State Athletic Commission, to appoint two non-Nevada judges for the Manny Pacquiao-Timothy Bradley rematch, scheduled for April 12 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Bradley captured the welterweight title of the World Boxing Organization (WBO) from Pacquiao in June 2012 with a controversial twelve round split decision that was widely criticized and even analyzed endlessly by the WBO. The first fight took place in the same venue. Judges Duane Ford and CJ Ross scored 115-113 for Bradley, and the third judge, Jerry Roth, saw the a card of 115-113 for Pacquiao.

"There are no guarantees [we'll get the two neutral judges]," Arum said to Carlos Narvaez. "All we've done is asked the Nevada Commission for at least two of the judges to be from outside of Nevada and one to be local. We are confident in the new director, Francisco Aguilar. Aguilar is tremendous person, so we'll see."
