Nevada boxing officials caught in a clinch
as to how to help judges

Las Vegas Review-Journal
Richard Steele is considered the best boxing referee of his generation after officiating the biggest fights of the 1980s and 1990s.
Steele was the third man in the ring for 167 world title bouts and was enshrined in the International Boxing Hall of Fame in 2014.
But many forget the Henderson resident was also a judge. Steele scored 14 world championship fights, including the Muhammad Ali-Larry Holmes bout in 1980 at Caesars Palace.
