We've got a full slate of pick'em action happening this weekend with 8 fights on the line-up.

HBO has a double-header, with Nonito Donaire going up against Jeffrey Mathebula, along with Kelly Pavlik taking on Will Rosinsky. It doesn't look that great on paper, but you never know.

There's also a Klitschko in action, with Wladimir squaring off with previous KO victim Tony Thompson. As with the Donaire fight, we're offering an over/under on this one to make things a little more interesting.

SKY has a triple-header, which looks like it has the potential to be best show of the weekend. Though the odds are long on the underdog, Kell Brook could have a test in Carson Jones. The other two bouts are rematches, with Gavin Rees taking on the unpredictable Derry Mathews (the first bout ended after a clash of heads), and Kerry Hope looking to duplicate his shock victory over Grzegorz Proksa.

Tyson Fury is in action at York Hall against heavyweight journeyman Vinny Maddalone, and rounding out the line-up is the Friday Night Fights main-event between promising young southpaw Javier Fortuna and veteran Cristobal Cruz.

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.
