The Bad Left Hook Pick'em Game: Season 20 - Week 9

Jeff Gross

We've got lots of action on the line-up this week, with an HBO double-header topping the bill. The cards features Julio Cesar Chavez Jr vs Brian Vera in a rematch of last year's controversial draw, as well as an intriguing featherweight clash between Olympic gold medalist Vasyl Lomachenko and sturdy veteran Orlando Salido.

A couple of the world's best lightweights square off in the UK, with Terence Crawford taking on Ricky Burns. The undercard match-up between John Murray and John Simpson is on the line-up too. There's also super-middleweight action from Germany, with Robert Stieglitz and Arthur Abraham meeting for the third time.

Finally, we've got some Friday night action, with an upset special option for the Shobox card.

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.
