The Bad Left Hook Pick'em Game: Season 16 - Week 8

We've got plenty of action for you this week, with Saturday night's Showtime PPV headliner between Floyd Mayweather and Robert Guerrero topping the bill. Along with the pick-the-winner & over-under options, there's a BLH scorecard special too for that one.

Also on the line-up are a couple of undercard match-ups from the PPV, with Abner Mares taking on Daniel Ponce de Leon and Gabriel Rosado going up against J'Leon Love in a 10-round middleweight clash.

Wladimir Klitschko is also back in action on Saturday, taking on Italian southpaw Francesco Pianetta. Please note the KO options for this one vary between rounds 1-6 and 7-12. The undercard features Irish based Cuban heavyweight Mike Perez looking to extend his unbeaten record against Travis Walker in a 10-rounder.

The last bout on the line-up is a Thursday night match-up between Mauricio Herrera and Ji-Hoon-Kim, so don't delay in making your selections for that one.

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.
