    There's no few. All or nothing. You can't really win doing a few against the better Contenders.

    The rules are under the Sherdog Prediction Contest sticky. You need to pick how the fights ends or you will only receive partial credit.

    So much for us picking this one.....

    Froch-Inkin off again!
    WBC appoints Froch as Calzaghe mandatory
    The WBC super middleweight clash between Carl Froch and Dennis Inkin is off again. Froch was originally set to face Inkin on March 29, but Inkin pulled out due to illness. The fight was then rescheduled for May 10, however Inkin has now pulled out of date as well, apparently due to a back injury. The WBC Board of Governors has reviewed the two cancellations and voted unanimously to appoint Froch as new mandatory challenger in the division.

    Your on boss. No better way than this to back up my pick. I can see Zabdiel taking seven rounds with "the content with counter punching" Mosley. But if "Sugar" shows up, it looks like Ill be sportin a new sig.

    I don't see Mosley doing a lot of counter punching in this fight.

    I was basing it off of his last couple performances with the exception of the last two-three rounds of the Cotto fight.

    He had some trouble in the first fight with Vargas even tho Nando was woefully over the hill.

    Plus, Shane has had some trouble with Southpaws in the past (Winky, Collazo).
