(NECN) - It looks like Paul the Octopus has some competition. He's the German octopus who correctly predicted eight World Cup matches, including Spain's win over the Netherlands.

Well, meet Oscar the Octopus.

He's trying his arms at picking a winner in this weekend's WBA Super World and WBO Lightweight titles being held at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas.

Oscar has picked Juan Manuel Marquez to beat Juan Diaz this Saturday.
