    Embattled boxing Judge CJ Ross steps down

    Looks like boxing fans are getting their wish.

    The judge who scored a tie in Mayweather's dominating performance over Alvarez and gave a win to Bradley over Pacquiao last year has stepped down. The Nevada Athletic Commission seemed to waver between bashing her and backing her in the wake of the most recent fight, but now that she's gone they're not pretending not to be happy about it. The Commission says they're changing their judge selection process, effective immediately for the Marquez/Bradley fight in October.

    The real question isn't why she didn't step down sooner; it's why she kept getting the job of judging high-profile fights. If someone's paying you tons of money to do a **** job, why stop?
