LAS VEGAS (AFP) - All eyes will be on the judges when Filipino southpaw Manny Pacquiao and Mexico's Juan Manuel Marquez clash in a non-title welterweight bout on Saturday at the MGM Grand Hotel.

Organisers took the uprecedented step on Friday of having the three judges attend the pre-fight rules meeting with both camps in attendance.

The Nevada Athletic Commission invited to the meeting referee Kenny Bayless and the three judges - Adalaide Byrd, Steve Weisfeld and John Keane.

When Pacquiao and Marquez enter the ring on Saturday it will be the fourth time in eight years they have fought.
