Rounding out this week's pick'em action, we've got 4 fights for you to select from.
Topping the second half of this week's bill is a middleweight clash from Germany featuring Felix Sturm against veteran Australian Sam Soliman. This one's on Friday, so don't delay in making your selection. Also on Friday, are a couple of bouts on this week's FNF show, with Carlos Molina taking Cory Spinks in a 154lb match-up, and Antwone Smith going up against Jose Louis Castilo at welterweight.
Finally, and in what appears to be this weekend's most well matched fight, Juergen Braehmer takes on Eduard Gutknecht, with the latter's European light-heavyweight title on the line.
