Boxing Judge C.J. Ross In Happier Times!

Boxing Judge C.J. Ross In Happier Times


Las Vegas, NV- Keith Kizer, the main guy at the Nevada Athletic Commission said the following after the resignation of female boxing judge C.J. Ross. This was after he defended her during the media frenzy that accompanied her even score of the Floyd Mayweather-Saul “Canelo” Alvarez rout. .


“To her credit, she does not want to take away from the story, being what a dominant performance by Floyd Mayweather. So, she has asked us if she can take some time off. We’ve agreed.” Wait a second Keith, she scored it even, you backed her up and Saturday night and now you say, “It shows the type of person she is. Commission chair Bill Brady was very understanding and supportive. He agreed that that was a great avenue to take.” Only because she embarrassed the state, incompetency, that is what’s going on here. That’s why it was a, “great avenue to take.”


“To her credit, she does not want to take away from the story, being what a dominant performance by Floyd Mayweather.” Mr. Kizer, according to Ms. Ross, this was not a dominant performance by Floyd Mayweather, as she scored six rounds for Canelo Alvarez. If Ross would have been the sole arbitor, Floyd Mayweather would have been denied victory and Saul “Canelo” Alvarez would still be the WBA/WBC 154 lb. titleholder.


Whether or not you or Kizer wants to admit it, bur when former heavyweight champion and historian Mike Tyson tells the Wall St. Journal, who rarely if ever covers boxing, that Ross should, “Have her license revoked.” Back to Kizer, after the scoring fiasco, she was “Still one of my best judges.” Message to K.K.: “You need new judges,” as most of the Nevada judges are getting up there in years. And aren’t you glad that you no longer have to defend the absurdity of the judging of C.J. Ross. I am and so are a lot of sports fans!

  1. She is taking a leave so she can go into hiding and not have to answer questions about her scorecard. Once things boil over she can re-apply for a license is she so pleases. Everyone has made such stupid statements in the commissions that it was either her, or the commissioners. Easier to let he go for the time being. I think all of these people need to go and start a clean slate. Overall it just stinks. Judges should be people that know about boxing, not someone who s politically connected as I believe Ross is. Many of the judges are inept, yet get these jobs because they come with all kinds of perks.

  2. Excuse me but isn’t this how Eugina Williams was dealt with? They threw her on ice for a while, until everyone forgot (close to four years) and then brought her back? 411 for all Eugina Williams has scored many world title fights since Lewis – Holyfield.

    By “some time off”, I hope she means we will never hear from her ever again.

  4. Maybe the split decisions on the same card should be looked at. Carlos Molina SD12 Ishe Smith and Pablo Cano SD10 Askley Theophane. These scores have been overlooked because of the Ross decision.

  5. After that mess on Saturday night her leave should be permanent. Having that fight a draw is mind boggling!

  6. I thought Ishe did more.

  7. Thought Ishe won as well but the scoring was pretty strange in that fight. I may be wrong but I though one judge had Ishe winning wide and one had Molina winning wide. I’m sure Ross will return as well.

  8. Terrible judges are the WORST. For boxing..They have the potential to do a lot of damage both inside and outside of the ring….Ring talk has always done a good job calling out the scummery around the industry…Let’s hope that CJ Ross never judges another boxing match ever again….Instead, she can go judge boxes and compare their relative “squareness” to one another…
