Officials were selected today by the Nevada State Athletic Association for the Saul “Canelo” Alvarez vs. Erislandy Lara PPV clash on July 12 at the MGM Grand Garden in Las Vegas. The referee will be Robert Byrd. Judges are Dave Moretti, Jerry Roth and Levi Martinez.
The commission also approved the date request for Top Rank’s August 2 HBO card at the Cosmopolitan Resort & Hotel in Las Vegas for the Brandon Rios against Diego Chaves.
The last item on the agenda, Adrien Broner was called in and lectured about offensive post-fight comments he made during a Showtime interview on the May 3 Mayweather-Maidana undercard. Broner apologized profusely and said he wouldn’t do it again.
