Not much happening in the boxing world this weekend, but we've still got some pick'em action for you with shows in Mexico, New Zealand and Russia.
First up on Saturday is some heavyweight action (remember to take into account the time difference and don't delay getting your picks in) with unbeaten New Zealander Joseph Parker going up against veteran Brian Minto. Also on the show is a battle of undefeated local light-heavyweights with Nikolas Charalampous taking on Aaron Lai.
From there we head to Mexico with Adrian Estrella putting his perfect record (17 stoppages in 17 fights) on the line against Dante Jardon. And finally on Sunday, we have heavyweight action from Russia with Ruslan Chagaev taking on last minute substitute Alexander Petkovic.
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.
