After the controversial ending to their first encounter, the officials were carefully selected for the rematch between the flyweight champion of the International Boxing Federation, Luis "El Mosquito" Lazarte, and mandatory challenger Ulises "Archie" Solis. The IBF has selected some of their best for this Saturday's rematch at the United Eleven Club in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
The referee is well known Benjamin Esteves of the United States, while three veteran judges are Steve Weisfeld (USA), Denny Nelson (USA) and Nelson Vasquez (Puerto Rico). The supervisor will be the Argentine George Martinez, who is based in Canada for over 20 years and is currently one of the leading authorities of the IBF.
Lazarte and Solis fought to a controversial draw on December 18.
