It was an interesting night at the fights this past Saturday, featuring the return of a legend who will one day find himself in the Hall of Fame and a venue that hopes to become a big-time player in the West Coast boxing scene.

Juan Manuel Marquez proved he still belongs near the top of the mythical pound-for-pound list, pounding out an exciting decision win over Mike Alvarado at the newly refurbished Forum in Inglewood, Calif.

How impressive was this performance against a younger, bigger man, and where does "Dinamita" go from here?

We'll also take a look at Adonis Stevenson's upcoming fight on Saturday night. It's supposed to pave the way for a unification bout with the ageless Bernard Hopkins, and it had better, given all the controversy that surrounds the Haitian-born Canadian fighter at this point.

What's happening with Julio Cesar Chavez Jr.? A potential pay-per-view fight with Gennady Golovkin is dead on arrival, and now his promoters and management team are at each other's throats. We’ll try to unpack as much as we know about this increasingly confusing affair.

So get ready.

All that and more in this week's edition of the top storylines in boxing.
