We’ve teamed up with The Mail’s 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 was 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.

Charlotte bounced back for the Chantelle Cameron v Katie Taylor thriller by tipping the latter to win, meaning her £10 stake returned £26.25.
Both backed Michael Conlan against Jordan Gill at the SSE Arena in Belfast last weekend, and, erm, the less said about that the better.
This week The Hook team are looking at Chris Billam-Smith’s WBO Cruiserweight title defence against Mateusz Masternak on Sunday night at the Bournemouth International in England.
CHARLOTTE: Chris Billam-Smith will get this one done by stoppage I reckon, in Rounds 7-8. I could overtake Alex with this one!
ALEX: You’re doing these sky-high bets just to catch me, think of the charity! I think you’re on a similar train of thought to me, we’re both Chris Billam-Smith fans. I reckon CBS will get the stoppage in Rounds 5-8.
Charlotte: Chris Billam-Smith to Win in Rounds 7-8
Alex: Chris Billam-Smith to Win in Rounds 5-8
