The Bad Left Hook Pick'em Game: Season 22 - Week 2

Laurence Griffiths

We've got a very busy weekend of pick'em action with several well matched bouts on the line-up.

The much anticipated rematch between Carl Froch and George Groves headlines a good looking show at Wembley.  The undercard has James DeGale squaring off with Brandon Gonzalez and Kevin Mitchell going up against unbeaten Ghislain Maduma.

Over in Macau, the main-event has Nonito Donaire taking on Simpiwe Vetyeka in an intriguing featherweight bout.  The undercard for that show has Nicholas Walters seeking a career best win against Vic Darchinyan and Chis Avalos vs Yasutaka Ishimito in a super-bantamweight match-up.

Another rematch has Felix Sturm and Sam Soliman renewing hostilities and rounding out the line-up is a featherweight clash between Javier Fortuna against Juan Antonio Rodriguez.

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.
