Referee John McCarthy Has Choice Words For NSAC Director Keith Kizer
“The truth is, Kieth Kizer is a person that does not know combative sports. He’s never been part of them. He’s never done them. He puts people [in positions] at times that maybe shouldn’t be put. You tell me why C.J. Ross said the Floyd Mayweather fight was a draw. Did you watch it? My god, I had it 11-1. It wasn’t even close. So if you’re doing that, you keep putting those same people back, you don’t care about the fighters. You don’t care about them as athletes, you don’t care about their livelihood. And you know what? You shouldn’t be in that job. And if someone doesn’t like what I said, too bad.”
“They sit there and that person’s the one that picks their referees, the one that picks their judges, and they’ve had some problems. Well, that’s Keith Kizer’s problem. I don’t work for Kieth Kizer. I would work for an athletic commission; love to work for them. I would never work for Keith Kizer. Never.
“If he’s in charge, if he’s the executive director, I want nothing to do with it.”
Big John McCarthy recently took to MMAFighting to discuss his discontent with the Executive Director of The Nevada State Athletic Commission, Keith Kizer.
Poor decisions made by uneducated officials have been plaguing combat sports for year’s, but with the recent events surrounding the Floyd Mayweather vs. Canelo Alvarez fight many are speaking out against the NSAC’s mess and McCarthy is just the latest to do so.
