Juan Manuel Marquez vs Tim Bradley: Officials selected for bout

Ethan Miller

The officials have been selected for the Juan Manuel Marquez - Tim Bradley fight after heavier inspections than usual.

Keith Kizer, the Nevada State Athletic Commissioner, and the NSAC's panel appointed the officlals for the showdown between Juan Manuel Marquez and Tim Bradley next month. Veteran referee Robert Byrd will be the third man in the ring while the three judges are Robert Hoyle, Patricia Morse Jarman, and Glenn Feldman. Byrd was also the referee for Bradley's controversial win over Manny Pacquiao last summer. Interestingly, all three judges have worked a Marquez fight before (this will be Jarman's seventh time) but none have ever judged a Bradley fight.

In light of the recent controversy regarding CJ Ross' scoring of the Floyd Mayweather - Canelo Alvarez bout a draw, larger steps were to taken to help prevent another scoring headache from taking place. According to ESPN.com's Dan Rafael, Kizer was forced to walk the NSAC panel through his selection process and even held a teleconference on Tuesday with both camps in order to get their input. Neither fighter had any issues with the selected officials. The panel approved each official unanimously.

According to Boxing Scene, Robert Byrd will make $5,000. Each judge will receive $3,500 for working the main event.
