Ladies and gentlemen, it's big fight week!

Of course, action is headlined this weekend by the Cotto/Canelo PPV. We pick up two title fights on the undercard, as well as a couple of good scraps across the pond.

Check the standings and see how many doubles and triples you have left here.

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.
