The Las Vegas Review Journal and KLAS-TV reported that controversial boxing judge C.J. Ross will be leaving boxing indefinitely. Ross, under fire for scoring Floyd Mayweather’s one-sided win over Canelo Alvarez as a draw, wrote an email to Nevada State Athletic Commission executive director Keith Kizer saying “I’m taking a break from boxing, but I’ll keep in touch.” The 64-year-old female boxing judge, who was paid $8,000 to work the Mayweather-Alvarez clash, told KLAS she may not return. She will step down after 22 years as a boxing judge with the Nevada Commission. Her scoring of the Mayweather-Alvarez fight was preceded by another high profile scoring snafu 15 months ago when she had Timothy Bradley winning against Manny Pacquiao in a bout most felt clearly went the other way.
