Season 4: #41 Kenny Bayless Boxing Life Stories

    • Sports

Las Vegas referee Kenny Bayless paid his dues to get where he is. He spent years as an amateur official and then had a long apprenticeship on the Nevada State Athletic Commission before going on to become one of the world's leading referees.

He was the third man in the ring the night Floyd Mayweather beat Manny Manny Pacquiao and the night Bernard Hopkins defeated Oscar De La Hoya and he was there for the worrying knockouts of Amir Khan against Canelo Alvarez, when Juan Manuel Marquez flattened Pacquaio and when Pacquiao nailed Ricky Hatton.

Here, Bayless talks about the sport, the big nights and names and reveals some hidden stories from his incredible experiences.
