The Bad Left Hook Pick'em Game: Season 6 - Week 8

With five fights on the game sheet, including a few big ones, this could be the weekend that makes or breaks it for this season's pick'em contenders.

Topping the line-up is a big HBO double-header featuring the rematch between light-heavyweight champion Jean Pascal and crafty old Benard Hopkins, and an interesting supporting bout that has Chad Dawson going up against Adrian Diaconu.

Also on the schedule is another twin-bill, with talented young Welshman Nathan Cleverly taking on German southpaw Juergen Braehmer, along with the much anticipated grudge match between British youngsters James DeGale and George Groves.

Rounding out the action is a cruiserweight clash from Moscow between bruising southpaw Denis Lebedev and the once great Roy Jones Jr.
