Throwdown Fantasy: Winner sets points record for Bradley v Rios game

Throwdown Fantasy 04/12/2015

A single game points record was set by the winner of the recent $2000 Throwdown Fantasy 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.”

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.

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.
