With not much happening in the boxing world this weekend, we've only got three fights for you on the pick'em line-up.
Topping the bill is a straw-weight match-up from South Africa, featuring #1 rated Nkosinathi Joyi going up against #6 Katsunari Takayama. The fighters initially faced off in January, with an early clash of heads resulting in a no-contest.
Also on the line-up is a super-middleweight clash from Germany, with Arthur Abraham going up against Piotr Wilczewski, and the Friday Night Fight's main-event between Hank Lundy and Dannie Williams.
