After a very quiet August, we've got a big September coming up, with several interesting fights happening this weekend to lead the month off. Topping the bill are a pair of middleweight bouts, with Felix Sturm (#2 BLH) going up against Daniel Geale (#3) in Germany, and Gennady Golovkin (#7) taking on Grzegorz Proksa in Verona, NY.

Also on the game-sheet is a 154lb clash between Sergiy Dzinziruk and unbeaten prospect Jonathan Gonzalez. That one's a 10-round supporting bout to the Golovkin-Proksa HBO main-event.

We head down to the lower weights for the rest of the line-up. Tepparith Kokietgym (#1) takes on veteran Nobuo Nashiro in Osaka, while a couple of South African fighters go on the road, with Nkosinathi Joyi (#1) going up against Mario Rodriguez (#10) in Mexico, and Moruti Mthalane (#3) taking on Ricardo Nunez in Panama.

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).
