The Bad Left Hook Pick'em Game: Season 12 - Week 2

tarver vs kayode winky vs quillin poster

We've got lots to choose from on the game-sheet - so if you happened to get off to a rough start last week, fear not, as this weekend offers plenty of chances to put points on the board and get back in contention.

Much of the action takes place on Showtime's big Four Warned card from the Home Depot Center in Carson, California. Former light-heavyweight champion Antonio Tarver takes on Lateef Kayode in a 12-round cruiserweight affair in the main-event, while Austin Trout puts his undefeated record on the line against veteran Delvin Rodriguez in the 154lb co-feature.

The show, packed with more depth than boxing fans are used to these days, also brings together up and coming middleweight Peter Quillin in a 10-rounder with former junior-middleweight ruler Winky Wright. Plus, there's an interesting bantamweight clash between prospect/contender Leo Santa Cruz and South African southpaw Vusi Malinga. For good measure, Showtime Extreme has long time 168lb contender Sakio Bika going up against prospect Dyah Davis.

Rounding out the line-up is a junior-middleweight clash between Gabriel Rosado and Sechew Powell, along with a couple of British fights. The UK match-ups have youngster Billy Joe Saunders going up against veteran Bradley Pryce and Brian Rose putting his British crown on the line against southpaw Kris Carslaw.

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.
