The Bad Left Hook Pick'em Game: Season 16 - Week 3

Brandon Rios will look to get the better of Mike Alvardo once more in a rematch of last year's epic clash. - Harry How

The highly anticipated rematch between Brandon Rios and Mike Alvarado headlines a very busy weekend of pick'em action. Along with last year's FOTY contender, we've got an Integrated Sports PPV from Monaco, plus well matched cards from the UK and Mexico.

There's plenty of points to be won (or lost) with 8 fights on the line-up... so if you're off to a rough start this season, here's an early chance to bounce back.

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.
