The Bad Left Hook Pick'em Game: Season 14 - Week 1

Chris Farina / Top Rank

We've got a new season of pick'em action starting this weekend, and a big HBO double-header to kick it off.

The HBO show features a match-up of top ranked super-bantamweights, with Nonito Donaire (BLH #2) going up against Toshiaki Nishioka (#1), plus a mouth watering junior-welterweight clash between bruisers Brandon Rios and Mike Alvarado (#6).

Super-middleweight sluggers Adonis Stevenson (#7) and Donovan George headline this Friday's FNF show, and rounding out the line-up is a BoxNation double-header, with David Price facing Audley Harrison and Jon Lewis Dickinson taking on Shane McPhilbin in a British cruiserweight title fight.

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.
