The Bad Left Hook Pick'em Game: Season 27 - Week 1

New, comments
Noah K. Murray-USA TODAY Sports

Welcome one, welcome all to Season 27 of the BLH Pick'em Game. Glory awaits you, boxing friends.

Very excited to see so many new players join the fray, and a couple even cracked the top 10 in their rookie season.

The slate is clean and—as of this moment—everyone is in the hunt for the title. Let's do this, pickers!

Note: If Geale flames out and that fight is canceled, all picks and multiples used are null and void. Same with any cancelation or last-second substitution.

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 us 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****
