Bradley-Marquez: NSAC Very Careful With The Judges

by Ronnie Nathanielsz

The  Nevada State Athletic Commission, under fire for the ridiculous scorecard of judge CJ Ross, who scored the one-sided Floyd Mayweather–Saul Alvarez title fight a 114-114 draw and scored one of the two controversial scorecards in last year's split decision in the bout between Timothy “Desert Storm” Bradley and Manny Pacquiao, have been careful not to name questionable judges for the Bradley vs. Juan Manuel Marquez WBO welterweight title fight at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas on October 12.

The NSAC paid extra attention to the selection of officials with the Commission carefully deliberating on the recommendations of executive director Keith Kizer who himself had come under fire for his appointment of Ross in the Mayweather-Alvarez fight after she had scored the Pacquiao fight for Bradley 115-113 alongside Duane Ford who had also come under fire for his scorecard which tallied with that of Ross.

Kizer announced that the referee would be the respected Robert Byrd while the judges named were Robert Hoyle, Glenn Feldnan and Patricia Morse-Jarman.

Byrd will receive $5,000 for his services as third man in the ring which each of the judges would get $3,500.

Marquez who turned down a $13 million offer from Pacquiao to face him for the fifth time after scoring a stunning 6th round knockout over the “Fighter of the Decade” last December 8 will receive a purse of $6 million while Bradley who rejected a $6 million offer from Pacquiao for a return match is reportedly receiving a purse of  $4.1.

While Marquez has repeatedly stated he would not fight Pacquiao again and wishes to savor his knockout victory for the rest of his life, Bradley has left the door open f or a Pacquiao rematch in the future. The official assigned to handle the battle for the vacant WBO featherweight title between former champion Orlando Salido and top contender Orlando Cruz are referee Kenny Bayless and judges Jerry Rorth, Ed Kubler and Glenn Trowbridge.

The featherweight title was relinquished by Mikey Garcia who has moved up to junior lightweight and will challenge WBO champion Roman “Rocky” Martinez in Corpus Christi on November 9 with 2012 “Fighter of the Year” Nonito “The Filipino Flash” Donaire facing Vic Darchinyan in a rematch over ten rounds with both fighters moving up to 126 pounds.

Donaire has said he hopes to get a crack at the winner of the Salido-Cruz clash should he beat Darchinyan whom he knocked out in the 5th round to win the IBF/IBO flyweight belts on July 7, 2007.

[QUOTE=Luilun;13784331]It's not about the money he wants to add to his collection of titles 126,130,135,140 and now 147 that's more important than 13 million to him. He also doesn't want to end his career on a robbery though it's possible…

Vegas is full of scumbags. Favors, money exchanging hands, bank accounts, it's all a racquet.
