The Nevada State Athletic Commission released the names of ring officials of the upcoming 12-round super featherweight non-title bout between Manny Pacquiao of the Philippines and Marco Antonio Barrera of Mexico. An all-American line-up of officials was announced with Tony Weeks named as referee while the judges would be Tom Schreck, Jerry Roth and Glenn Trowbridge. Pacquiao's trainer Freddie Roach a few days ago created a stir as he expressed his concern should the NSAC name Joe Cortez as the third man in the ring. Roach was quoted as saying that Cortez "favors Hispanic fighters" and that he would prefer to see other well-known referees like Kenny Bayless and Vic Drakulich get the job instead. Pacquiao is the current World Boxing Council (WBC) International super featherweight champion but that belt will not be at stake in his battle with Barrera.

I hope this fight ends with a ko. If not we gonna have some problems with the scoring.
