The Bad Left Hook Pick'em Game: Season 29 - Week 1

Tom Pennington/Getty Images

Welcome to Season 29! The slates have been wiped clean, and everyone is back in contention. Good luck all!

Congrats once again to our Season 28 winner BackScreenLob. Look out for updated Player of the Year standings in the next week or two.

Pretty light weekend here, but Terrence Crawford is generally good viewing. There's also a weak Sky card and a Shobox quadruple header with lower-level prospects.

Alrighty ... Let's get it get it get it!

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).

The numbers in your selections are binding, not the names which you can leave out. The numbers will suffice.

Please follow the instructions at the bottom of this post - it makes it easier for me to tabulate the results each week.

**** Remember you do not need to make a selection on every fight; you are free to PASS on any pick. But you must make at least one selection to receive the 10 point participation bonus****

Please fill out your selections as follows:

Enter the LETTER of the fight first, then whether it’s a single (1), double (2) or triple (3) followed by the NUMBER of your pick. (The name of the fighter and method of victory are optional).

**** You have 10 doubles and 5 triples to use over the 10 week season ****

For Selection A, if you want Rose without using a double or triple...

A. (1) – 2

For Selection B, if you want a double on the Over...

B. (2) – 1

For Selection C, if you want a triple on McDonnell by KO...

C. (3) – 2

For Selection D, if you wish to pass...
