Week 1 of 3! Well after a massive failure of a February on my part, I promise we're back on track. I just got a new job and had a crazy training schedule. Things are completely normalized now though and I promise: No more glitches.
(Also a pretty big failure for the first week of March, There was a pick'em planned and ready, but it just never got posted. I now have publishing rights, so this whole thing should be streamlined going forward. Sorry about that.
February's truncated results will be posted and the winner announced on Sunday. Once again I apologize, but sometimes life just gets in the way. I will actually have a lot more time to put back into this starting this upcoming week and we should really be back on track.
This week's action includes: A lot of interesting international fights and a big showdown of top 20 middleweight bangers!
All Multipliers are reset! 5 doubles, 3 triples. Use them wisely.
Not the biggest weekend for name fighters, but a ton of points with the right multipliers!
Week 1 of 3! "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).
