The Nevada State Athletic Commission has chosen Kenny Bayless to referee the pay-per-view super-fight between pound for pound king Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Mexico’s Saul “Canelo” Alvarez at the MGM Grand Garden Arena boxing ring Sept. 14.

The announcement was made by the commission as long with the Nevada judges that will see the actions decide the outcome on points system. The judges are Dave Moretti, C.J. Ross and Craig Metcalfe.

Bayless, 53, has worked three of Mayweather’s past fights, and recognized as one of the world’s best referee in the sports of boxing. His last assignment was the shocking December knockout of Manny Pacquiao by Juan Manuel Marquez.
