Canelo-Jacobs Judges The Same As Canelo-GGG II
Canelo Alvarez will see familiar faces scoring ringside on May 4th, as the Nevada State Athletic Commission appointed judges on Wednesday for his May 4th fight against Daniel Jacobs.
The NSAC would vote unanimously in favor of executive director Bob Bennet’s recommendations at their monthly meeting on April 24th.
Scoring Alvarez’ return to Las Vegas will be the same three men who scored his September 2018 win over Gennady Golovkin, Connecticut’s Glenn Feldman, Nevada’s Dave Moretti and New Jersey’s Steve Weisfeld Veteran Nevada referee Tony Weeks was approved to officiate Alvarez-Jacobs’ middleweight unification fight from T-Mobile Arena.
Both Moretti and Weisfeld scored in Alvarez’ favor in September 2018, scoring it 115-113, while Feldman saw the fight as a draw.
One name not on Bennett’s list on Wednesday was Adalaide Byrd, who was a part of the initial list made last week, receiving universal backlash due to her inexplicable 118-110 scorecard for Alvarez in his 2017 draw against Golovkin.
Instead, Bennett chose from a group that also included the three judges selected and Nevada judges Tim Cheatham, Eric Cheek, Robert Hoyle, Patricia Morse Jarman and Glenn Trowbridge, California’s Max DeLuca, New York’s John McKaie and Connecticut’s Don Trella.
Bennett recommended Weeks from a group featuring Kenny Bayless, Robert Byrd (Adalaide Byrd’s husband), Vic Drakulich, Russell Mora and Jay Nady.
