Can Abner Mares recover from his stunning defeat?

Well, how's that for a weekend of excitement? 

This past weekend's fights produced memorable knockouts, stunning upsets and more than their fair share of drama. We have two new world champions and a ton of things to talk about. 

This is going to be a bit of a slow week for the sport of boxing, but the good news is we now sit just under three weeks away from one of the biggest cards in memory. Floyd Mayweather vs. Saul "Canelo" Alvarez will meet on Sept. 14, and the media storm will be intense. 

So enjoy these last few days of peace and quiet. These are the hottest storylines you'll need to watch for the week of Aug. 26.
