Officials named for Canelo-Lara PPV
- Updated: June 18, 2014
Referees and judges were announced for the full Canelo vs Lara pay-per-view card.
The third man in the ring for the main event between Canelo Alvarez and Erislandy Lara will be Robert Byrd. As a very active referee, some of Byrd’s more recent big fights he’s worked were Bradley vs Marquez and Mayweather vs Guerrero.
The three judges who will be tasked with scoring the main event are Dave Moretti, Jerry Roth, and Levi Martinez.
Here are the rest of the officials for the main undercard fights:
Abner Mares vs Jonathan Oquendo
Referee: Kenny Bayless
Judges: Adalaide Byrd, Burt Clements, Glenn Feldman
Juan Manuel Lopez vs Francisco Vargas
Referee: Vic Drakulich
Judges: Tim Cheatham, Robert Hoyle, Don Trella
Johan Perez vs Mauricio Herrera
Referee: Tony Weeks
Judges: Lisa Giampa, Max DeLuca, Glenn Trowbridge
Tomoki Kameda vs Pungluang Sor Singyu
Referee: Russell Mora
Judges: Dick Houck, Patricia Morse-Jarman, Cathy Leonard
I think I speak for everyone when I say we are all glad that CJ Ross is nowhere to be found on this card.
Canelo vs Lara takes place on July 12 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas on Showtime PPV.
