original DragonBall - why aren't there line judges at the Tenkaichi?

We're almost done with the original DragonBall, we're at the third and apparently final Tenkaichi tournament and something occurred to me: why aren't there any line judges or refs? The blond guy with sunglasses seems to do double duty as announcer and referee. Surely an event of this magnitude would have a whole team of judges? Right?

There are other officials though:

My guess is that it's usually only two fighters at a time and it's a raised platform so it's not that hard to see when someone rings out, right?

I know there’s the drummers and the tile replacers, I wasn’t sure if they had double duty.

I thought the only way to win was knock-out, ring-out, or opponent forfeits. So you'd only need like a doctor and someone checking cameras in the back.

Yeah, but we just saw blond guy and a couple medics and that's about it.
