Since Daniel Geale and Anthony Mundine will be battling it out on Wednesday in Sydney, Australia, we wanted to give everyone a chance to get a pick down on the fight, so this is an early & abbreviated line-up for now. Sydney is 11 hours ahead of GMT, and 16 hours ahead of EST - so make sure you don't delay in making your selections for this fight!
The rest of the action will be listed later on this week, so be sure to check back in a couple days. To receive the weekly 10-point bonus, players only need to make 1 selection per week - so if you get a pick down for this fight, you'll already be covered in that regard. If you don't, no worries, just make sure you get a pick down when the rest of the line-up comes out.
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.
