The Nevada State Athletic Commission has named the officials for the Timothy Bradley-Juan Manuel Marquez WBO welterweight title fight on October 12 at the Thomas and Mack Center in Las Vegas, Nev.

The officials for the October 12 WBO welterweight title fight between Timothy Bradley and Juan Manuel Marquez have been named. 

According to Karl Freitag of FightNews.com, Robert Byrd was designated  by the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) to be the referee. The judges will be Robert Hoyle, Patricia Morse-Jarman and Glenn Feldman. 

The Bradley-Marquez bout is the next major Nevada card since Floyd "Money" Mayweather, Jr. bested  Mexico's Saul "Canelo" Alvarez by majority decision on September 14. Judge C.J. Ross drew controversy for scoring the bout 114 for both fighters when it was clear Mayweather should have been ahead in the scorecards.

Ross was also a judge of the June 2012 fight between Bradley and Manny Pacquiao, who lost by split decision. It was a fight "most thought Pacquiao had easily won," per ESPN's Dan Rafael.

Rafael adds NSAC chairman Bill Brady "promised a more thorough discussion" of the officials, who were recommended committee executive director Keith Kizer. Kizer was interrogated by an NSAC panel on why he chose the individuals in his list. 

Bradley and Marquez are responsible for Pacquiao's two most recent losses. Bradley, as previously mentioned, squeaked by Pacquiao 15 months ago while Marquez stunned  the boxing world by knocking out Pacquiao in the sixth round of their December 8, 2012 bout. 

Marquez will attempt to earn the WBO welterweight title belt at the age of 40. Bradley is all praises for his opponent, who he considers to be a late bloomer. However, he said Marquez and his camp "will never stop my will to win."

Top Rank promoter Bob Arum is predicting the number of pay-per-view broadcasts for the bout to hover around the 500,000 range, according to Anthny Riccobono of the Internaional Business Times. 

Bradley is seeking to maintain an unbleimished 30-0 record. He also has 12 knockouts and will make $4.1 million for the fight.

Marquez, on the other hand, is 55-6-1 with 40 stoppages and will earn a $6 million paycheck.
