We’ve teamed up with The Mail’s new The Hook podcast to take a look at the biggest and best bouts on the planet each week.
Hosts Charlotte Daly and Alex McCarthy dissect all the top talking points from the Boxing and MMA worlds, and chat with leading figures in the sport such as Eddie Hearn, Tyson Fury and Anthony Joshua.
Then they get down to business and put their necks on the line in a weekly head-to-head tipping battle.
Each week we challenge the podcast pair to give us their best bet for the weekend using a free £10 stake with all winnings going to charity.
Alex is racing clear in the head-to-head battle after bagging £55 for correctly calling Tyson Fury to win on points against Francis Ngannou in week one, and £21 from backing Joe Cordina to beat Edward Vazquez via the same method in week two of the competition.

The less said about last week the better! After firing blanks in Tom Aspinall’s quickfire UFC 295 win over Sergei Pavlovich it’s back to Queensbury Rules as Nick Ball takes on Isaac Dogboe on Saturday evening.
Alex: Nick Ball is like a mini Mike Tyson.
I think he’s got a knockout in his locker and, while Isaac Dogboe is a sturdy guy, he won’t be able to withstand it all fight.
I fancy Ball to Win by KO/TKO in Rounds 7-9.
Charlotte: I think I’m onto a winner here.
I also believe that Nick Ball will win but I think it will be a Knockout between Rounds 5-8.
All prices are bang up to date with our snazzy widgets, while odds in copy are accurate at time of publishing but subject to change.
Alex: Ball to Win in Rounds 7-9
Charlotte: Ball to Win in Rounds 5-8
