We've got another slow week on the pick'em front, with Friday's ESPN2 show supplying the only action for this week's game. Thankfully, the lull in big fight action ends next week with Showtime's 118lb tournament final, featuring Joseph Agbeko and Abner Mares. There will be 3 selections for that one, so plan accordingly if you're running low on doubles and triples.
The FNF show features two ten rounders, that on paper appear to be evenly matched - with Tim Coleman going up against Vernon Paris in a welterweight clash, and veteran Cristobal Cruz facing off against undefeated Art Hovhannisyan in a junior-lightweight match-up.
For those that haven't played before, welcome to the best pick'em game going. Please join right in and start playing (just make sure to check out the rules - we promise they are very simple).
An explanation of how to fill out your selections appears at the bottom of this post - please follow these instructions as it makes it easier for us to tabulate the results quickly each week.
