The Bad Left Hook Pick'em Game: Season 24 - Week 10

New, 36 comments

We've got a full slate of fights to close out the 2014 pick'em season.

The bulk of the action takes place on Saturday night, with Showtime's main-event between welterweights Amir Khan and Devon Alexander topping the bill.  The featured undercard bout has Keith Thurman looking to stay undefeated against Leonard Bundu, with Victor Ortiz vs Manuel Perez also on the line-up.

Over on HBO, Timothy Bradley headlines the action against Diego Chavez, with Matt Korobov vs Andy Lee and Mauricio Herrera vs Jose Benevidez rounding out a triple-header of fights.

Finally, we've got a Friday night bout too, with Erislandy Lara taking on Ishe Smith on Showtime.
