The Bad Left Hook Pick'em Game: Season 15 - Week 3

After a slow start, the action heats up in week 3 with a big featherweight match-up on HBO between undefeated Mikey Garcia (BLH #4) and the tough and tricky Orlando Salido (#1). The show also features Gennady Golovkin (#3) taking on longshot Gabriel Rosado (#10) in a battle of middleweights, and a 130lb match-up between Juan Carlos Burgos (#9) and Rocky Martinez (#5).

NBC Sports has a potentially solid show, with an intriguing lightheayvweight clash between Gabriel Campillo (#3) on Sergey Kovalev in the main-event. We've got the undercard match-up between Elvin Ayala and Curtis Stevens on the game-sheet too.

And rounding out the action is the latest installment of the Prizefighter Series, with the welterweight division getting the tournament treatment on this edition.

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).
