The Battle for the Greatness Mayweather-Pacquiao boxing fight is expected to earn $400 million (£273 million) and $10,000 for the referee.

The Nevada State Athletic Commission has yet to confirm who will be handling this sports game inside the ring. Short-listed referees are Kenny Bayless, Tony Weeks, Robert Byrd, Jay Nady, Russel Mora and Vic Drakulich. As for hearsays, Bayless and Weeks are on top on the list but the sports commissioners have yet to confirm.

As for Pacquiao’s coach, Freddie Roach, he is just hoping for a fair judgment during the fight. A fair fight is all Roach wanted to happen.
