The Bad Left Hook Pick'em Game: Season 23 - Week 9

New, comments
Karina Hessland

We've got 4 fights on the line-up for you this weekend, with action from Germany, Russia and the USA.

The German card features Arthur Abraham going up against Paul Smith in a super-middleweight clash.  There's cruiserweight action over in Moscow, with Krzysztof Wlodarczyk taking on Grigory Drozd in what the odds say is almost a 50/50 match-up.  That show also has the return of Denis Lebedev, with the heavy handed southpaw taking on unbeaten Pawel Kolodziej.

Rounding out the game-sheet is a Friday night bantamweight match-up from Texas between Anselmo Moreno and undefeated Juan Carlos Payano.

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).
