Fight fans—we will be doing an exclusive interview with everyone's favorite boxing referee Kenny Bayless next weekend in Las Vegas during the Manny Pacquiao vs. Timothy Bradley fight week.

Kenny Bayless is widely regarded by many media outlets and fans as the best referee in the sport of boxing.

Bayless has refereed classic, notable fights, such as: Oscar De La Hoya vs. Floyd Mayweather, Miguel Cotto vs. Antonio Margarito, and Roy Jones vs. Antonio Tarver 1.

For those more casual fans who only watch boxing when super star Manny Pacquiao fights, you might recognize Bayless. He refereed numerous Pacquiao fights, including: Pacquiao vs. Erik Morales II, Pacquiao vs. Juan Manuel Marquez II, Pacquiao vs. Ricky Hatton, Pacquiao vs. Cotto, and Pacquiao vs. Mosley.

Kenny Bayless did not get the role of being the third man in the ring for the main event of Pacquiao vs. Bradley on June 9th. That referee will be Robert Byrd.

Kenny will be the referee for one of the exciting major under card fights of that night, the Jorge Arce vs. Jesus Rojas fight.

So for all the fight fans, here is your chance to send in your questions for Bayless. If your question is selected, we may use it in the exclusive interview.

The Manny Pacquiao vs. Timothy Bradley fight is next Saturday at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, and can be seen live on HBO pay-per-view at 9:00 p.m. (ET), 6:00 p.m. (PT).
