Pacquiao-Mosley: Kenny Bayless To Ref, Judges Are Set

By Chris LaBate

According to the Las Vegas Review Journal, veteran referee Kenny Bayless has been selected to work the welterweight clash between WBO champion Manny Pacquiao and former three division champion Shane Mosley. They collide on May 7 at the MGM Grand. Bayless received the word on Wednesday from the Nevada Athletic Commission. The three experienced judges, all from Las Vegas, will be Duane Ford, Dave Moretti and Glenn Trowbridge.

Bayless has worked four fights with Pacquiao (52-3-2, 38 knockouts) and Mosley (46-6-1, 27 KOs) - including Pacquiao-Cotto, Pacquiao-Marquez II, Pacquiao-Morales II, Pacquiao-Hatton, Mosley-Mayweather, Mosley-Collazo, Mosley-Vargas and Mosley-Marquez.

Bayless IS the best ref in the business imo. Can't remember a time when I strongly disagreed with his judgement.
