    Default Fave Referees

    Been seeing a lot of negative comments about Cortez lately (rightly so) just wondered if anyone had any referees that you thought did a good job in general.

    Mills Lane
    Harry Gibbs
    Richard Steele

    I like Tony Weeks and Kenny Bayless. also Steve Smoger.. these refs seem to care more about humanity.

    Hands down it has to be these two guys here.


    Steve Smoger



    Arthur Mercante Jr.

    BTW. Mercante Jr's. line after stopping a fight has been "I Love You Too Much." It is not just Zab Judah he has said this to.

    Love anyone who will stop a fight when they think it's right and know they might get flak for it, Steele stopping Taylor on the last second is a classic example.Turns out that Taylor had swalloed a huge amount of blood, as he says it only takes a second for a punch to be thrown,land and take a decision away from you.

    When there's a really big fight, there are 2 refs who I feel completely comfortable with.

    Kenny Bayless and Steve Smoger.

    American refs are usually better in terms of competance with the exception of Joe Cortez. He messes up far too often these days.

    In terms of British refs, Dave Paris stands out as a total loser. He does whatever it takes to please the house promoter. Fat,bald scum!

    They are usually spot on. I hope one of those two is doing the Hatton: Pac fight.

    I totally agree with GAME too. Dave Paris is a disgrace, I still haven't got over that Khan fight. Dave Paris is the Joe Cortez of British boxing.

    used to be mills lane, now its bayless or weeks.

    The best refs are the ones you completely forget are in the ring with the 2 fighters and let the fight just flow.

    As for the worst refs......

    cortez, drakulich(sp?) and jay nady


    oh and as for fatty parris.....

    Don't think Cortez is that bad, it was just his actions in the Soto fight that took the piss. Still NO ONE is as bad as Marlon B. Wright

    The best are undoubtedly Kenny Bayless & Steve Smoger, although I always thought Richard Steele was good, got to hard a time for stoppin Taylor, but I always prefer a ref to err on the side of caution in that situation.

    I think some referees need psychiatric test every now and then. Some as they get older, has the tendency of being numb and insensitive and due to the cruel nature of boxing they had become somewhat of a sadist..you know..I am aware that they call the boxers warriors, modern gladiators but that doesn't mean they fight to death.

    that sir does not suck

    Boxing is a bloodthirst sport however much you like/dislike that, if theres a world title on the line a ref should give a fighter every possible opportunity to carry on unless in an extreme circumstance like if he was getting absoloutely tonked.

    where would boxing be right now if we had over zealous refs every time....

    Marquez-Pacquiao would of been over within 2 minutes
    diego corrales would of been handsomely beaten 1st time around by castillo
    vasquez-marquez would of been stopped several times over
    eubank would of lost to watson
    benn would of lost to mcclellan

    Too many fights get stopped prematurely these days and it is annoying. I admire a ref who knows where to draw the line. I was just watching the Hatton: Thaxton fight just now, and I don't know who the ref was, but I thought he did an excellent job what with Hatton being cut quite badly so early. Cracking fight that.

    who stopped the Lews v Ruddock I fight far too ealry ? was it Steele ?


    One of best pieces of refereeing I have ever seen was by our own Mickey Vann in the Graham Earl v Katsidis fight.

    Earl was in trouble and his corner threw the towel in - Vann threw it back out believeing Earl was ok to continue. Earl then floored Katsidis a few seconds later.

    Ok Earl lost eventually
