The officials have been selected for one of boxing’s biggest fights of 2023.
Tuesday at a Nevada Athletic Commission meeting, executive director Jeff Mullen put forth his recommendations for the referee and judges to officiate Canelo Alvarez vs. Jermell Charlo on Sept. 30 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
Mullen’s recommendations passed unanimously.
Harvey Dock will receive $4,150 to referee the 12-round title bout. The judges will be Max DeLuca, David Sutherland, and Steve Weisfeld, who will each receive $2,950 each.
The co-main event, a WBC welterweight title bout between Yordenis Ugas and Mario Barrios, will be refereed by Tom Taylor ($2,250), the commission also announced. The judges will be Tim Cheatham, Chris Flores, and Steve Weisfeld ($1,950 each).
Alvarez will put his IBF, WBO, WBA, and WBC super middleweight titles on the line vs. Charlo. He’s won back-to-back fights since his May 2022 loss to Dmitry Bivol.
Charlo is 4-0-1 in his most recent five bouts since a December 2018 loss to Tony Harrison. He most recently competed in May 2022 when he defeated Brian Castano by TKO.
