We've got 5 fights on the line-up to decide this season's winner - and of course, if you're a little farther down in the standings, there's still Player of the Year Points to compete for.
Prizefighter is back with a strong line-up of lightweights, that includes Derry Mathews, Anthony Crolla and Gary Sykes. As we've seen many times in the series, outsiders have a legit chance of winning, so if you're looking for big points at minimal risk to close out the season, it might be wise to consider one of the tournament's longshots.
The rematch of arguably last year's best fight takes place this weekend, with Kompayak Porpramook (#3) looking to get the better of Adrian Hernandez (BLH #5) once more. Having traveled to Thailand for the first encounter, Hernandez will have the hometown advantage on this occasion.
We've also got an interesting match-up of top 10 junior-middleweights with Zaurbek Baysangurov (#9) hosting Lukas Konecny (#8) in Kiev. A double-header from Puerto Rico rounds out the line-up, with Moises Fuentes (#2) taking on Ivan Calderon, and Wilfredo Vazquez Jr. (#7) going up against Jonathan Oquendo.
