The referee and three judges for Saturday night's fight between Danny Garcia and Mauricio Herrera in Bayamon, Puerto Rico, have been named. Referee Roberto Ramirez Sr will be the third man in the ring, and the bout will have judges from Puerto Rico, the United States, and Panama at ringside.

Ramirez, a Puerto Rican, refereed another 140-pound title fight in January, when he went to DC for the Lamont Peterson vs Dierry Jean Showtime bout. He was also the referee for the 2012 rematch between Orlando Salido and Juan Manuel Lopez, after which Lopez accused him of having a gambling problem, leading to the stoppage of the fight. He's been working pro fights since the 1970s.

The Puerto Rican judge is Carlos Colon, unfortunately not the legendary professional wrestler and promoter. Colon has been judging since the 1980s. California's Alejandro Rochin will also be scoring the fight, as well as Panama's Guillermo Padilla.

There is no reason to believe this crew will be any better or worse than any other might be.
