Winner sets Throwdown Fantasy Points record for #BradleyRios game

NEW YORK (December 3, 2015, 2015) – A single game points record was set by the winner of the recent $2000 Throwdown Fanatasy Boxing Game as Ernesto Lopez(“Ring_King24”) racked up 474.5 total fantasy points to capture the $400.00 winner’s check.
“The reason why I play Throwdown Fantasy is because I am a hardcore boxing fan and I actually boxed as an amateur,” Lopez said.  “Plus, what’s better than getting paid for doing something I love and follow 24/7.  ThrowdownFantasy.com is the best!  I am on it all of the time and my wife thinks I’m addicted.  Hey, it’s paying off.”
Here’s a close look at Lopez’ winning team:

 

Lopez built his winning team around three solid favorites in Tim Bradley, Edwin Rodriguez ($5800) and Vasyl Lomachenko ($5800).  This trio cost him a total of $16,400 in camp money with only $8600 remaining for him to spend on his final two fighters.  The helping hand was provided by Karim Guerfi ($4300), the third cheapest fighter and decisive underdog versus Alejandro Gonzalez, Jr.  Jarrett Hurd was Lopez’ final pick.
By being the only player to pick five winners, Lopez was able to compile his 474.5 record-setting points.  The rest of the top 10 finishers were only able to select four winners in this game and that proved to be the difference.
Throwdown Fantasy’s all-time winningest player, “Yuggy,” shared second-place with 436.4 points for a $130.00 prize.  However, he entered his team three times to win almost as much as the game winner, $390.00.  The beauty of Throwdown Fantasy is that players may enter a contest as many times as he or she chooses, improving the chances of winning money.

$2000 Throwdown Fantasy Boxing Jacobs vs. Quillin headlines new game & Return of Head-to-Head games

For Immediate Release
NEW YORK (December 1, 2015) – Head-to-head games, allowing players to go 1-on-1 to either up the chances of winning or settling a score, returns for the next $2,000Throwdown Fantasy Boxing Game, online at www.ThrowdownFantasy.com, powered byCompuBox.
 

 
The much anticipated middleweight showdown between defending world champion Danny Jacobs and former 160-pound division titlist Peter “Kid Chocolate” Quillin headlines the new Throwdown Fantasy Boxing Game.  Jacobs ($5100) is favored over Quillin ($4700) because the former is younger, bigger and hits equally hard.  Both are dangerous punchers but Quillin has proven to have the superior whiskers.
The most prohibitive favorite in this game is Regis Prograis ($5800) versus underdogAbel Ramos ($4000).  Prograis is a rising star whose boxing skills are far superior to always tough Abel Ramos ($4000)
Another heavy favorite is Fedor Chudinov ($5600) over aging former world championFelix Sturm ($4300).  Not only has Chudinov already defeated Sturm, he’s also younger, quicker and fresher.
Crafty southpaw Jesus Cuellar ($5400) has size and power advantages againstJonathan Oquendo ($4300).  Cuellar figures to catch Oquendo after a few feeling-out rounds.
Former world champion Chris Algieri ($5000) may have lost his last two fights, but they were to Manny Pacquiao and Amir Khan.  Algieri’s aggressive style and experience should prove to be the difference against Erick Bone ($4300).
The best fight of the week may be between young, crowd-pleasing Omar Figueroa($5000) and veteran Antonio DeMarco ($4200).  The aggressive Figueroa must control the pace against DeMarco, whose best days appear to be behind him.
A heavyweight pick-em features a pair of potential future world title challengers in Dominic Breazeale ($4800) and Charles Martin ($4700).  The big punching, tough Breazeale has holes in his game that he’s been able to overcome against smaller opponents.  Martin, however, is a live ‘dog with the same size as Breazeale and equal power.  Plus, he’s a lefty.
Another heavyweight class finds a fading Chris Arreola ($4800) fighting Travis Kauffman($4500), who is moving up in clash in terms of quality of opponent.  Weight is always an issue with Arreola, which effects his ability to throw punches in bunches.  Kauffman wants to push the pace versus Arreola, taking him into deep water but winning rounds along the way.

Cotto vs. Canelo featured bout for new $2000 Throwdown Fantasy Boxing Game

Take #CottoCanelo quiz to win $250 Fantasy Freeroll
NEW YORK (November 13, 2015, 2015) – The final mega-fight of 2015 between world middleweight champion Miguel Cotto and challenger Saul “Canelo” Alvarez is the featured bout for the next $2,000 Throwdown Fantasy Boxing Game,online atwww.ThrowdownFantasy.com, powered by CompuBox.
 
Show Throwdown Fantasy your boxing IQ by taking its 15-question #CottoCanelo quiz (see below) and earn a $250 freeroll if you correctly selected 70-percent or more of the answers
 
Alvarez ($5100) is a slight favorite over Cotto ($4600), largely because of Alvarez’ physical advantages over Cotto in terms of height, reach and, of course, age. It breaks down as a case of youth (Alvarez) vs. experience (Cotto).  Who do you like?   Below find the CompuBox statistics for these two gifted warriors:
The #CottoCanelo game is loaded from top to bottom with an array of future Hall of Famers, past and present world champions, Olympians, and stars from virtually all around the world. Below find the complete line-up with corresponding fighter salaries:
 

Erroll Spence ($5900), Erislandy Lara ($5700) and Jermall Charlo ($5600) are prohibited favorites.  Spence averages 108.5 fantasy points, highest among all fighters in this game, but his high salary against Alejandro Barrera will cost a lot in terms of this game’s salary cap of $25,000.
Lara may be overpriced, based on his 59.7 average fantasy points, but his expected offensive output practically guarantees a win versus Jan Zaveck.  IBF super middleweight champion James DeGale ($4700) and former world titlist Lucian Bute ($4500) battle in a highly competitive game, on paper, in this game.
Yudel Jhonson and Daquan Arnett are in a pick ’em fight with both fighters listed at $4600.  Tyson Fury ($4600) is a live ‘dog in his world heavyweight fight against defending champion Wladimir Klitschko ($5400).
Other fights to choose from include Randy Caballero ($5100) vs. Lee Haskins ($4500) and Tahaski Miura ($4700) vs. Francisco Vargas ($5200).
