Only one week to go, and while this season's title is almost settled, most players still have plenty to play for with Player of the Year points up for grabs.
A quick rundown of how Player of the Year points work...
At the end of each 10 week season, the top 20 players will receive player of the year points, 15 for 1st, 13 for 2nd, 11 for 3rd, 10 for 4th, 9 for 5th, 8 for 6th, 7 for 7th, 6 for 8th, 5 for 9th, 4 for 10th, 3 for 11th-12th, 2 for 13-15th and 1 for 16th-20th . These point totals will be added together to determine the Pick'em Player of the Year.
Our feature bout is of course the Super Six semi-final match-up between Carl Froch and Glen Johnson. The British fighter will be tough to beat, though the odds are inviting for players that believe The Road Warrior has one more big night in him. Showtime will be broadcasting Mikkel Kessler's return to action on tape delay, and we've also got that bout on the line-up.
There's an HBO card on the schedule as well, with Julio Cesar Chavez going up against Sebastian Zbik in a middleweight clash, while Gavin Rees takes on Andy Murray for the vacant European lightweight title on Sky.
For those that are new to the game, please make sure to check out the rules (we promise they are very simple).
