    THE RULES OF THE GAME


    If you lose your JOKER to a cancelled/voided fight you will get 3 points for the value of your JOKER.

    Scoring
    Should your fighter of choice go down in flames no points you will be awarded.
    If your fighter of choice wins but not as you called it you will be awarded 3 points
    If you just type the name of the winning fighter you will score 1 point.

    If you call a points win you will score 6 points.

    If you call a Unanimous Decision you will score 8 points.

    If you call a Split Decision you will score 10 points.

    If you call a Majority Decision you will score 15 points.

    If you call a Draw you will score 20 points.

    In fights where the referee is the only judge a decision win will be worth 6 points, regardless of whether you pick points, UD, SD, etc. We will try to avoid those when we can.

    If you call a Technical Decision you will score 25 points. (If a fight ends in a TD you will get six points if you called a pts win, but you will just get three if you called a UD, SD, MD, or a TKO)

    If you call a DQ you will score 30 points. A ruling must be made within 24 hours.

    If you call a KO/TKO you will score 8 points.

    If you call a KO/TKO and the correct round you will score 20 points. If are off by one round (plus or minus) you will score 4 points. If you are off by more than one round you will score 3 points.
    If I predict a KO1 and Saddo predicts a KO11 , should I get the same 4 points that he gets if it ends KO12? No. This will award the "close" prediction and keep us from just throwing out a random number to try and get 15 points.

    A STAR fight is worth double points and is pre-selected.
    A JOKER fight is worth double points and is selected by the individual.
    You cannot play your JOKER on the STAR fight.

    If there is a change of opponent in a STAR fight the scoring will not change and you may pick the new fighter to win. It is up to the player to keep track of the goings on in the boxing world.

    If there is a change of opponent in a non-star fight the fight will be VOID.

    Everybody gets one. One week off per competition. During this week, you will be awarded the average points of the field for that week. If you miss out the first week and play the second week, we will calculate the average of the first week and that will be your week off. If you only get in during the third week or following, you will get the average of the previous week only. And more to the point, where the hell have you been? Once your holiday week has been played, you will get a star next to your name on the leaderboard, and no further holiday weeks are allowed.

    Don't bother us with your boring, pointless shtick every single fucking week or you will be deducted 45 points.

    All predictions must be posted in this thread or Private Messaged to Silkeyjoe before the fight begins.

    OumaFan, superheavyrhun, Silkeyjoe and Saddo can change any rule in regards to this contest. There will be 72 hours notice before changes take effect. If you do not log on within three days then the change will occur without your knowledge.

    Anyone caught cheating will be banned from the contest. Oh, we know things. We're watchin', bub.

    Saddo can veto anything and everything in regards to this contest.

    Leaderboard will be updated on a Monday or a Tuesday. Any point queries DM Silkeyjoe.

    All picks must be entered at the same time on the one post. If you enter multiple posts you will get awarded no points for that week

    Im only human and am bound to make a few mistakes when doing the scores. If something is wrong let me know and I'll fix it. Just dont be a dick about it!

    No berating of other peoples picks in this thread. Take it to another thread!

    As I said in the other thread, I wouldn’t mind taking part but there are too many fights where they would be complete guesses which kind of loses the fun and competitiveness of it. It should only be fights at least scheduled for 10 rounds or something of the sort. It doesn’t hurt my feelings either way but just FYI, that’s why I’m not doing it.

    I get you haven't got the interest if you don't know the fighters but they're actually all 12 round title fights (with the womens world title. obviously)
    3-Time REIGNING and DEFENDING SADDO PREDICTION COMP CHAMPION. First Ballot Hall of Famer. Fact.

    Interesting. Basically they would just about all be guesses because I either only know one fighter in the fights or neither. Other than the main event

    I purposely left a few of the lower grade fights out with you in mind. Feigenbutz, Mittag, Meng etc. As fenster said these are all live on sky PPV and 10 or 12 round fights 4 are world titles, a British title fight and a WBC Silver title fight (Allen fight is off and will not be included as he will likely be facing a pudding).

    If we went with only big fights there would only be one or 2 a week and wouldnt be much of a competition.

    Thanks for keeping me in mind 😁

    I’m not British so I don’t know many random British fighters. I would have a good guess with AJ bs Takam and Chisora vs Helenius but the other fights would be complete guesses because I haven’t seen any other person fight.
