We've got four fights on the line-up this week, with the HBO main-event welterweight clash between Andre Berto and Jan Zaveck serving as the main attraction. Along with Berto-Zaveck, the undercard bout between Thomas Oosthuizen and Aaron Pyror Jr has also been included - though it looks like there will be no televised coverage of that 10-rounder.
Sky Sports has a very well matched main-event lined up between Jamie McDonell and Stuart Hall. We've devoted two selections to this battle of bantamweights.
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.
