The Nevada State Athletic Commission has named Robert Bennett as its new executive director, replacing Keith Kizer, who left his role this past January, according to the Las Vegas Sun.

“Bennett, a retired FBI supervisory special agent and U.S. Marine Corps captain, has judged approximately 68 professional fights and shadow judged an additional 46,” the report said, though has Bennett judging 77 pro fights between April 2011 and April 2012 (not including any he shadow judged).

“Prior to accepting the position, Bennett served as court security director for Clark County’s 8th Judicial District, where he was responsible for the management of the more than $10 million capital budget,” the report said.

Kizer had served seven and a half years in his post. Prior to that, he had for nearly nine years been chief deputy attorney general of the Nevada Office of the Attorney General’s gaming division, a role that included being the chief legal counsel to the NSAC, according to his LinkedIn profile. He is now the deputy attorney general of the state Office of the Attorney General’s business and taxation division.

not much of a resume for this position...Kizer was kinda limp wristed in a lot of his actions..reminds me a ort time back how Andy Foster who controlled GA boxing (though 95% of his was mma) snuck in the back door in CA when every1 was expecting Pat Russell...

I wonder if this will have any noticeable effect within boxing? Keith Kizer is a name I've grown used to hearing for a long time now.
