The Hottest Boxing Storylines for the Week of May 26
SHOWTIME/Stephanie Trapp

We have a lot to unpack from last week before jumping into the big week of boxing ahead.

Adonis Stevenson successfully defended his light heavyweight championship on Saturday night, but it was much harder than anticipated. Was he overlooking his foe? Or was this struggle a sign of rough seas ahead for the power-punching 175-pound champion?

HBO will televise two big world championship fights from around the world on Satuday night, and we'll take a look at Froch vs. Groves II and Nonito Donaire's attempt to capture a world title in a fourth weight division. 

Finally, what's a week in boxing without more debate about whether or not a superfight between Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao will ever happen. We assess the latest on Pacquiao's new promotional deal and Mayweather's future fight plans.

All that and more in the hottest boxing storylines for the week of May 26.
