Referee, judges selected for Canelo Alvarez vs. Jermell Charlo fight

The officials have been selected for one of boxing’s biggest fights of 2023.

On Tuesday at a Nevada State 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 scheduled 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 undisputed 168-pound titles on the line against Charlo. The Mexican star has 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 of last year, when he defeated Brian Castano by TKO.
