Pacquiao-Bradley II - Keane Out, Meltcalfe in as Judge

By Edward Chaykovsky

A new judge has been selected for Saturday rematch between Manny Pacquiao and Timothy Bradley at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. According to the Las Vegas Review Journal, judge John Keane of Great Britain withdrew from the assignment due to illness, and the Nevada Athletic Commission has replaced him with Canada’s Craig Metcalfe, who joins Las Vegas’ Glenn Trowbridge and Florida’s Michael Pernick. Kenny Bayless will be the referee. Both camps had no problem with Metcalfe being appointed.

The judges for the fight has been a touchy issue, due to Bradley winning the first meeting, in June of 2012, with a controversial twelve round split decision at the same venue.
