Referee Robert Byrd has drawn the assignment for the July 12 showdown between junior middleweights Canelo Alvarez and Erislandy Lara at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, and the rest of the officials for the big fights on that card have been named by the Nevada State Athletic Commission.

The officials were named yesterday at the Commission's monthly meeting.

While Byrd will be the third man inside the ring, the three at ringside scoring the fight -- which could be tricky, or not, or a mess -- are veterans Dave Moretti, Jerry Roth, and Levi Martinez.

Here's the full rundown of officials. Highlight: No Jay Nady. Lowlight: Drakulich AND Mora!
