Welcome to Season 26 of the Bad Left Hook Pick'em Game! Five years of Pick'em Game have come before us, and many more lie ahead.

Nothing looms as large as this season as THE FIGHT, and I'm sure you're all as excited as I am for the picks that week in particular.

But let's not get ahead of ourselves. This weekend we have a couple good fights including Kell Brook's return after that weird stabbing incident and an intriguing matchup between veteran banger Jhonny Gonzalez and Gary Russell Jr.

Note: The ESPN2 fights are on Thursday night, so get your picks in on time.

Congratulations again to Season 25 winner johnny_o! Can he make it two in a row and 3 of the last 4? Or will a hungry young lion step up and assume the mantle?

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).
