Ceja camp protests officials in England

By Gabriel F. Cordero

Promociones del Pueblo, promoter of Julio Ceja, will file a formal protest to the IBF over the judges and referee assigned to his IBF world bantamweight title showdown with Jamie McDonnell in Doncaster, England. The referee will be Howard Foster (England) and judges are Holger Wiemann (Germany), Dave Parris (England) and Alfredo Polanco (Mexico). The supervisor is Lindsey Tucker from U.S. The Ceja camp is upset that two British officials are assigned compared to only one Mexican official and wants the officiating geographically neutral.
