SPRINGFIELD, N.J. (AP) -- Wayne Kelly, a boxing referee who officiated several notable bouts, has died. He was 63.

The International Boxing Federation said Kelly died Wednesday from a heart attack.

Kelly's career spanned more than two decades. He was remembered best for officiating the first fight between Riddick Bowe and Andrew Golota. He also officiated several IBF/USBA title fights including Wladimir Klitschko vs. Sultan Ibrigamov and Arturo Gatti vs. Wilson Rodriguez.

Kelly was a Vietnam War Veteran. In lieu of flowers, the Kelly family is suggesting a donation be made in his memory to the Vietnam Veterans of America.
