Both Mayweather and Alvarez are winding down their camps in anticipation of "The One."

This past week was the calm before the storm in the boxing world, with little going on, but a palpable sense that we are finally nearing the end of the road before the biggest fight in years.

Floyd Mayweather and Saul "Canelo" Alvarez are now less than two weeks away from stepping into the ring, and there will be plenty written and said about that fight in the next 13 days. It's obviously the biggest story in boxing, and one of the biggest in all of sports, but it's not the only thing going on.

This week in boxing will feature a crossroads heavyweight fight, the return of a Mexican warrior we thought done, a lightweight title defense across the pond and of course some additional hype for "The One," as if it needs it.

So then, fans, these are the hottest boxing storylines you'll need to watch for the week of Sept. 2.
