The Bad Left Hook Pick'em Game: Season 20 - Week 5

Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

We have some Thursday night action (yes, that's tonight!) for you this week, so don't delay in making your selections. Of course, you can always just make your Thursday picks and post your selections for the rest of the weekend later.

Topping the bill is Gennady Golovkin, with the middleweight bruiser staying busy against Osumanu Adama in Monte Carlo. We've added an Over/Under for this one. The undercard has Max Bursak taking on Jarrod Fletcher. Also on Saturday is action from Wales, with Gavin Rees taking on Gary Buckland in a lightweight match-up. On the same card, Lee Selby and Rendall Munroe meet in a battle of featherweights.

There's also an FNF double-header on the line-up. Undefeated Blake Capparello takes on Elvir Muriqi in the main-event, with super-bantamweights Jorge Diaz and Luis Rosa going at it on the undercard. As for the Thursday night show, it's on Fox Sports 1, with Victor Ortiz taking on Luiz Collazo in the headliner. The supporting bout has Eddie Gomez and Daquan Arnett putting their undefeated records on the line.

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.
