Officials for Manny Pacquiao, Jerwin Ancajas in "The Battle of Brisbane" Named

By Carlos Costa
PhilBoxing.com
27 Jun 2017



The referees, judges and supervisors for this Sunday's world title defenses of Filipino world champions Manny Pacquiao and Jerwin Ancajas have already been assigned by the respective sanctioning bodies as both Pinoy champions are set defend their world crowns in "The Battle of Brisbane" before an audience of 50,000+ fans at the Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane, Australia, this coming Sunday July 2.

Officials are all neutral and experienced, so fans can breath a sight of relief. The WBO officials for Manny Pacaquiao against Brisbane challenger Jeff Horn are:

Referee Mark Nelson of Minesota, USA. Judges: Mrs. Waleska Roldan of New York, Mr. Chris Flores of Arizona, USA. and Mr. Ramón Cerdán of Argentina.

The last time Mr. Mark Nelson - a referee since 1992 - worked as a third man in a world title fight was in the WBO/WBC super lightweight world title defense of unified undefeated champion Terence Crawford (31-0, 22 KO's) against challenger John Molina Jr. Crawford knocked out Molina in eight rounds, with referee Mark Nelson doing his usual outstanding work.

Mrs. Waleska Roldan's last officiating work in a world title clash was as recent as last March at the Madison Square Garden in New York in the close, bloody super flyweight title defense of 30-year-old Nicaraguan 4-division world champion Roman "Chocolatito" Gonzalez against Thailand challenger Srisaket Sor Rungvisai (also known as Wisaksil Wangek).

After the twelve torrid rounds of non-stop dramatic action, Chocolatito lost his crown in a controversial split decision. But Ma'am Waleska voted a 113-113 draw, a scorecard hailed by a great number of fans and boxing writers as the fight's best scoring.

The second Pacquiao judge is Chris Flores, who is also a referee. Mr. Flores was ringside in Mexico last May as judge in the third defense of IBF 105-lbs world champion Jose Argumedo of Mexico against Colombian challenger Gabriel Mendoza. No scorecards were needed as the Argumedo ended matters with a TKO over Mendoza in round 8.

And the third Pacquiao judge, Ramon Cerdan, is a veteran judge in hundreds of fights since 1998.

Mr. Cerdán was with pen and paper on hand just three weeks ago in his native Argentina as a judge in an all-Argentinian affair: the title defense of WBO/WBA/IBF of super lightweight world champion Ana Laura Esteche defending against her Argentina compatriot Adela Celeste del Carmen Peralta.

It was a split decision. Two ringside judges saw Esteche winning. However, judge Ramón Cerdán voted for Peralta. Esteche retained her crown.

The supervisor in the Pacquiao-Horn fight is none other than WBO President Francisco "Paco" Varcarcel of Puerto Rico, a man of boxing who loves Manny Pacquiao and loves fair scoring.

IBF OFFICIALS FOR ANCAJAS VS KINOSHITA

The co-main event in Brisbane will be the second super flyweight world title defense of 25-year-old Filipino "Pretty Boy" Jerwin Ancajas (26-1-1, 17 KO's) of Davao del Norte against tough IBF #3 Teiru Kinoshita (25-1-1, 8 KO's) of Osaka, Japan.

Kinoshita is six years older than Ancajas, both are southpaws and the referee in charge of the action is Ignatius Missailidis of Melbourne, Australia.

The experienced Mr. Missailidis has been official for over 20 years in nearly 300 fights, including oriental, Oceania, interim, national and regional titles.

Judges in the Ancajas fight are equally experienced: Judge Ray Wheatley also from Australia, Samuel Conde Lopez of Puerto Rico and Levi Martinez of New Mexico, USA.

Judge Wheatley, 69, has been a man of boxing his whole life, first as a heavyweight boxer in his youth; then as a judge in dozens of fights. Years ago, Wheatley was also a referee, though not now. In addition, Mr. Wheatley has been fight supervisor, boxing promoter and he has written about box. More experience than that its hard to find.

Mr. Samuel Conde Lopez - the second IBF judge in the Ancajas rumble - last acted as a judge in the WBC World female flyweight fight between defending Mexican world champion Jessica "Kika" Chavez and Japanese challenger Naoko Fujioka in October of last year in Ecatepec, Mexico. It was a unanimous decision.

Finally, the last third judge in the "Pretty Boy" Ancajas fight will be the experienced Levi Martinez, a judge in hundreds of fights whose last outing as a judge was just four weeks ago in Osaka, Japan, in the WBA defense of 3-division world champion Kazuto Ioka against Thailand challenger Noknoi CP Freshmart (also known as Noknoi Sitthiprasert).

Martinez and the other two judges voted for Ioka, the rightful winner.

The IBF Supervisor in the Ancajas-Kinoshita world title fight is Mr. Ben Keilty of Australia.
