We've got five fights on the pick'em line-up this week, with the HBO junior-welterweight clash between Devon Alexander and Marcos Maidana topping the bill. Also on the line-up, is the second half of that double-header, with junior-lightweights Adrien Broner and Eloy Perez going at it.

There's an interesting heavyweight scrap happening this week as well, with Alexander Povetkin taking on Marco Huck, with the latter making his debut among the big men.

Rounding out the card is the FNF main-event between Juan Carlos Burgos and Cristobal Cruiz, and a light-heavyweight match-up from Wales between Nathan Cleverly and Tommy Karpency. The 175lb clash looks like a bit of a mismatch, so we've limited the options to an over/under.

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.
