After the controversial decision that handed Timothy Bradley the welterweight title over Manny Pacquiao in June 2012, the Nevada State Athletic Commission is trying to avoid a similar situation by appointing new judges.

The athletic commission enlisted Glenn Trowbridge of Nevada, Michael Pernick of Florida and Great Britain's John Keane to score the forthcoming match along with famed referee Kenny Bayless. All four of the men were chosen by both camps.

"What the commission did was give us a whole list of officials that were being considered -- judges and referees -- and then we circulated it to both camps and we said knock out anybody that you feel may not be suitable," Top Rank chairman Bob Arum said, via ESPN.com.

"Then we had a phone call with (commission chairman Francisco Aguilar and commissioner Bill Brady last week) and said, 'Here are the officials that both sides have no objection to,' and out of that they selected three judges and the referee."

During Pacquiao and Bradley's last fight, judges C.J. Ross and Duane Ford voted 115-113 for Bradley, leading to one of the most controversial matches in history. Both Ross and Ford left judging after that fight.

The two boxers will step into the ring for the second time on April 12 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
