The Bad Left Hook Pick'em Game: Season 23 - Week 6

New, comments
Scott Heavey

Apologies everyone - I thought Gonzalez vs Yaegashi was on Saturday and not today, and there just isn't enough time to get everyone a fair chance to make a pick.  So it will be left off the game sheet.

There's still plenty of action to choose from this weekend, including Saturday's 122lb rematch between Carl Frampton and Kiko Martinez.  We've added an over/under for this one.  Another good looking bout has Juan Francisco Estrada taking on Giovani Segura in Mexico.  We've got an over/under for that too.

Rounding out the line-up is a Showtime triple-header, with Lucas Mattyhsse, Adrien Broner and Andre Berto all in action.  The opponents are Roberto Ortiz, Emmanuel Taylor and Steve Upsher Chambers.

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.
