Boxinghead Battle

I have started a prediction game featuring many of the boxing experts in the United States and a few sprinkled in from around the world. I call it the Boxinghead Battle. Predictions will be tabulated throughout the year for major fights.

The rules are as follows: One point (+1) for correctly picking the winning fighter, minus one point (-1) for picking the losing fighter and five points (+5) for correctly picking a draw. No points are awarded for fights that are declared a "No Contest."

Below you will see the current standings through the first three fights of the Battle (Pacquiao-Bradley, Chavez-Lee and Adamek-Chambers). Each expert is identified along with his publication. Some names are prominent boxing figures on Twitter and do not have an affiliation. I will provide periodic updates as the year progresses. The current leaders are in bold; they are Scott Kraus, Mark Ortega, Joel Stern and Two Piece Boxing. 

Check for updates to the Boxinghead Battle. There will be a dedicated page on the upper right hand side of the website.
