Throwdown Fantasy: First-time winners claim Wilder-Duhaupas prize

Throwdown Fantasy 05/10/2015
For the third consecutive week, the $2000 Throwdown Fantasy Boxing Game produced first-time winners, Damon Holman and Esiah Camarena, who shared the $300.00 first-place prize for the most recent Wilder/Duhaupas group.
The remaining $700 was won by the top 34 players. Usually between 20-30% of players who enter any given game will win money. The $250 Fantasy Free roll game was filled up over a week in advance.
 
Holman, who is a longtime Throwdown Fantasy player, enjoys undercards because, “It gives me a reason to watch some of these non-championship cards on TV now.”
Camarena is a fairly new player who feels Throwdown Fantasy, “Adds more to fights that would not mean as much. Having a dog in the fight, so to speak, adds more to the result.”
There was a key fight change due to an injury, which made playing even more challenging than normal.  In fact, Holman felt he had the correct picks but, left with only 12 fighters in the pool after injuries, he decided to protect his selections by entering twice. Here is a look at the original field:
 
  
 
Fred Kassi vs. Robert Breazeale was a late replacement for Jamal Jones vs. Juan Carlos Abreau.  Players are advised to check for changes because they are allowed to change picks prior to games beginning.  Below is a breakdown of the winners’ picks.
 
 
The number of players continue to dramatically increase with each grouping.  The quality of players has improved because none of the top six finishers from last week were listed among the All-Time, Top 15 Winners’ List.
