MARQUEZ OK WITH SELECTED REFEREE AND JUDGES FOR FOURTH FIGHT WITH PACQUIAO


PhilBoxing.com




Juan Manuel Marquez seemed contented with the judges chosen by the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) to score and the referee selected to officiate his fourth fight with Manny Pacquiao. Marquez has repeatedly complained on how the judges scored their last three fights. This time he has no negative comment yet on the officials picked.

"The judges will be in the eye of the hurricane. They'll be being watched closely by television reporters, by the people, not to be exposed to another controversial ruling. That leaves me quiet," said Marquez as quoted by Scott Christ of badlefthook.com.

Earlier Marquez demanded that no judge from Nevada will be chosen to officiate the fourth Pacman match. The controversy of the last fight with Timothy Bradley also prompted Pacquiao to demand that international judges be included to score the fight on December 8.

The officials selected for Pacquiao-Marquez IV are referee Kenny Bayless of Nevada and judges Adelaide Byrd (Nevada), Steve Weisfeld (New Jersey), and John Keane (England). Bayless was the third man on the ring for their second encounter, while none of the three judges has ever adjudicated a Pacquiao-Marquez bout.

"Whenever there's a rematch, or, in this case, a triple rematch, I try not to use the same judges for two reasons," said Keith Kizer of NSAC as told to Steve Carp of Las Vegas Review Journal. "One, it makes sense to have a fresh set of eyes. Two, we don't want the fighters worrying about what one judge did in a previous fight."

During the first fight on May 8, 2004, the referee was Joe Cortez of New York. The judges scored as follows: John Stewart of New Jersey, 115-110 for Pacquiao; Burt A. Clements of California, 113-113 even; and Guy Jutras of Canada, 115-110 for Marquez.

Clements later admitted that he committed an error in scoring the first round 10–7 in favor of Pacquiao instead of the standard 10–6 because Marquez went down the canvas three times. Stewart and Jutras did score 10-6 for Pacquiao in the first round. Had Clements scored it 10–6 for Pacquiao in round one Pacquiao would have won by split decision because the third score would have been 113-112 in favor of the Filipino boxing icon.

The second fight was held on March 15, 2008 with the referee Kenny Bayless of Nevada. The judges scored as follows: Duane Ford of Nevada, 115-112 for Pacquiao; Jerry Roth of Nevada, 115-112 for Marquez and Tom Miller of Ohio, 114-113 for Pacquiao for a split decision win.

The third bout was on November 12, 2011 with referee Tony Weeks of Nevada. The judges, all from Nevada, decided as follows: Dave Moretti, 115-113 for Pacquiao; Robert Hoyle, 114-114 even and Glenn Trowbridge, 116-112 for Pacquiao for a majority decision win.

According to Marquez, “I have to catch the judges' eyes by being more explosive, taking more risks, even going for the knockout.” This is exactly what he is going to do in order to stop thinking that he was robbed of the victory by the judges. Pacquiao likewise said he will go for the knockout.
