We've got another busy line-up of pick'em action on tap for you with six fights on the schedule.
A welterweight clash between Andre Berto and Victor Ortiz headlines HBO's offering, with Amir Khan taking on Paul McCloskey also on the broadcast. Showtime features a featherweight battle from Puerto Rico with heavy handed Juan Manuel Lopez going up against veteran Orlando Salido.
There's also the British welterweight title match-up, this week's FNF main-event, the European 122lb title bout and a battle of super-flyweights from Argentina between southpaws Omar Narvaez and Cesar Seda. Some of the fights are on Friday, so make sure to get your selections in on time for those.
For those that are new to the game, please make sure to check out the rules (we promise they are very simple).
