OK, been a lot of discussion the past few months regarding Joe Cortez, and what is and isn't allowed. For those who criticized Cortez, who would do a better job? Who do you think is currently the best referee in big fights? Who handles the pressure? I'll go for Kenny Bayless, never seen him be biased, generally gets it right :thumbsup:

Smoger is everyone's favorite referee due to Pavlik-Taylor. There are plenty of other referees who are just as good.

Bayless, Weeks, and Caiz are three good referees.

Smoger. He lets the fighters fight and doesn't stop them early.

One of my friends' dad is actually a referee, James Santa I think his name is. He reffed the Jones Develle fight

Anybody that thinks Cortez is a bad ref, just watch the Rocky Balboa-Mason Dixon fight. That was awesome refereeing. That near every single ref would of stopped the fight when Balboa went down the second time. But Cortez let it go on. Balboa came back to drop Dixon in the same round. Outstanding job. :thumbsup:

I remember Santa. He did the Elvir Muriqi vs. Sam Ahmad fight on ESPN. That was a fukking war.
