Prediction champion of the month

A while ago, I had an idea for a prediction competition, where the scorer with the highest amount of points, is the prediction champion of the month.
Not many people were involved, and it wasn't worth the work, so I stopped doing PCOM, but there are more active Eye on the ring judges now than then, so I thought reinventing the idea was worth a shot.

Here's how the points work.

- If I predict Joshua to stop Parker inside 4 rounds, and he does that, I get 5 points.
- If I predict Joshua to stop Parker in rounds 5-8, and he does it in 9-12, I get 4 points.
- If I predict Joshua to stop Parker in rounds 9-12, and he does it in 1-4, I get 3 points.
- If I say Joshua outpoints Parker, but he stops him, I get 2 points.
- If I say Joshua beats Parker by UD, and he does, I get 5 points.
- If I say Joshua beats Parker by MD or SD, and he does, I win 6 points.
- If I say Joshua beats Parker by UD, and he beats him by MD or SD, I get 4 points.
- If I predict Joshua vs Parker will be a draw, and it is, I get 7 points.
- If I say Joshua beats Parker anyhow, but Parker proves me wrong, I don't win any points.

I think to keep things simple, and stop it getting too complicated, predictions for stoppage wins should be either early (1-4), mid (5-8), and late (9-12), so that it fits into the points system.

To keep the competition competitive, I think it is best to have a vault full of upcoming fights.

I will not do this if there are not at least 5 competitiors.

Sounds interesting. It's good to have initiatives to keep this growing community involved. I am willing to take part but I have to admit I don't follow today's fighters as closely as most other users here seem to do.

Re: Prediction champion of the month

Well your intelligent, you might do very well, great that your willing to participate!

I'm in. May need some prompts at times to submit, as I am working on my Thesis or graduation and am a bit scattered. But this seems fun!

Re: Prediction champion of the month

Awesome!
Well good luck with that as well.
http://eyeonthering.com/forum/fight-vault-pcom, here's the fight vault, whenever suits you, just post your predictions on here or on the Vault page (either is fine) the more predictions you make, the more points you can get, so you might want to check all the fights out if you want to and have time.

Re: Prediction champion of the month

I would like to join.

Re: Prediction champion of the month

Awesome!
http://eyeonthering.com/forum/fight-vault-pcom, here's the vault, as many of the predictions included in the vault (predictions for fights that aren't in the vault won't be counted, but all the big fights are there, and not just main events) as you would like, and we'll see how many points you win with the kick off for the Competition on Saturday.

Re: Prediction champion of the month

Sounds like an excellent Idea! Count me in!

Re: Prediction champion of the month

Awesome man!
I explained it all in my first post on this page so that should answer any questions you might have about points and everything, but yeah all you have to do to be involved is go to the fight vault, here http://eyeonthering.com/forum/fight-vault-pcom, and put down your predictions.

I'll add your name to the scoreboard now.

Re: Prediction champion of the month

Hi again. I have a question

What is the deadline for submitting the prediction for each fight?

Re: Prediction champion of the month

There isn't one, not really, just as long as you make your prediction before the fight starts.

Re: Prediction champion of the month

I'm in. Do I just make my predictions on that page for all the fights in post 1?

Re: Prediction champion of the month

Great!
Here is the fight vault page,
http://eyeonthering.com/forum/fight-vault-pcom
At the top, is a list of all the fights which you can win points for predicting (all the big fights are there), so whenever you want, just drop a comment on that page containing all your predictions, it is up to you of course, but my advice to anyone who wants to win, is to make a prediction for all of them, give yourself the best chance of winning, there basically isn't an aspect of losing points, worst that can happen is getting the outcome wrong and not getting any more points, but you can win up to 7 points by calling a result, if you get the outcome right, that in itself gets you 2 points.

I'll add your name to the scoreboard!

Re: Prediction champion of the month

That seems fun! But I don't know if I'm good enough for that. I've recently got into martial arts thanks to https://www.previousmagazine.com/mikhail-peleg-martial-arts-training-how...

Re: Prediction champion of the month

Hi Ben, welcome to Eye on the ring!
If you want to be in the prediction competition, I will add your name to the scorebaord, and all you have to do is give me your predictions for,

Ramirez vs Hart II
Fielding vs Alvarez
Farmer vs Fonseca
Lemieux vs Johnson
Whyte vs Chisora II
Rosales vs Edwards
Warrington vs Frampton
Jermall Charlo vs Monroe
Jermell Charlo vs Harrison
Nietes vs Ioka

And specify decision/stoppage, UD/SD if decision (or MD, SD and MD are worth the same thing in this competition), if stoppage, early/mid/late. You can predict a draw.
