TQBR Prediction Game 5.0, Update #2

In a weekend with two very difficult winners to predict, three amigos — TJChim, Apemantus and Bundy Bears AKA ALEXMAC — got all of them right. And because of this, one of those three, Bundy Bears, is now in the lead for TQBR Prediction Game 5.0.

Andre Ward-Sakio Bika was the gimme, with only one person, Manila Ice, going with Bika (d’oh). But Carl Froch-Arthur Abraham was a harder call, with 10 people picking the Froch upset correctly, and five going with a unanimous decision, although one of those didn’t count because it was a late prediction, from Baron (d’oh).

And Juan Manuel Marquez-Michael Katsidis divided us most, with 14 picking Katsidis for the upset incorrectly, and two people, Miggs 88 and Baron, calling the correct 9th round for Marquez’ knockout (but Baron’s was late, so, d’oh). Miggs 88 gets the call of the week by default.
