The Bad Left Hook Pick'em Game: Season 19 - Week 5

Lots of action this weekend, with fights from the USA, South Africa and Japan.

Topping the bill is tripleheader action from Showtime, with Mikey Garcia stepping up to the 130lb class to take on Rocky Martinez. The show also features the long awaited (well, sort of) rematch between Nonito Donaire and Vic Darchinyan. Rounding out the card is the most evenly matched bout of the week, with Demetrius Andrade and Vanes Martirosyan looking to solidify their status as contenders in the junior-middleweight division.

The South African show features a pair of bouts between local stars and Argentinean visitors, with Hekkie Budler taking on Hugo Verchelli and Thomas Oosthuizen going up against Ezequiel Maderna. And in Japan, the world's top rated bantamweight Shinsuke Yamanaka looks to continue his winning ways in a match-up with Alberto Guevara.

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).
