We've got lots of action for you this weekend, with the HBO PPV main-event between Floyd Mayweather and Miguel Cotto topping the bill. Also on the line-up are a couple match-ups from the less than spectacular undercard with Saul Alvarez facing Shane Mosley and Deandre Latimore going up against Carlos Quintana.

There's action from Germany as well, with an intriguing cruiserweight rematch between Marco Huck and Ola Afolabi. Heavyweights Kubrat Pulev and Alexander Dimitrenko are also on the game-sheet in the main supporting bout.

Rounding out this week's pick'em action is a featherweight clash from Singapore between Chris John and Shoji Kimura, along middleweight action from France featuring Hassan N'Dam N'Jikam and Max Bursak.

For a nice breakdown of the week's action, check out Scott's analysis on the Bad Left Hook TV Schedule.
