Kenny Bayless Will Be The Third Man In The Ring For Pacquiao vs. Marquez 4

Think about it, how many times have you heard the phrase: Manny Pacquiao vs. Juan Manuel Marquez? Or heard a sentence with both those names in it? After three very close and in some instances controversial fights, their history together has been forever interwoven, and if there were even two fighters that were born to fight each other, it’s Pacquiao and Marquez.

As far as excitement and action goes, I am pretty sure that if Pacquiao vs. Mayweather Jr. ever happens, it will not deliver as much entertainment as Pacman vs. Dinamita has over the years.

Their fourth fight is coming up, and once again the boxing fans are crossing their fingers in hope that this time, the win is solid and conclusive. There are two crucial elements when it comes to judging a fight: the judges, and the third man in the ring.

The judges do their job as they see fit: they watch it just like you and I, and score it based on what they believe is true. This can of course cause problems at times, when one judge scores it in a completely different fashion from the other two for example. Still, more or less, they do a decent job and usually score the fight pretty accurately.

As far as the third man in the ring goes, his job is absolutely crucial, as the job is to keep the fight fair, so that the fans of either boxer have nothing to complain about when the result is announced. In other words, he is the man helping everyone, and if they make a tiny mistake the fight could end in a very different way from what it could have ended in.

Lucky for us, we have this very sensitive fight covered, as Kenny Bayless will be that third man in charge come fight night. I don’t know about you, but I strongly believe Bayless to be one of the top referees that have ever blessed the sport of boxing. He is as accurate as he is attentive, and there is nothing negative at all that I can say about him. I am happy with the decision to have him lead this fight, as it will certainly add validity to the bout itself as well as the outcome.
