We’re staring down the barrel of a major fight week in New York City that is sure to dominate all the boxing headlines in the week ahead. On Saturday night, Puerto Rican icon and surefire future Hall of Famer Miguel Cotto will attempt to make history, challenging Sergio Martinez for the middleweight championship at Madison Square Garden.

Can Cotto become the first Puerto Rican-born fighter to capture world titles in four weight divisions? Can Martinez return from a year-ending injury for the second straight year and turn back a determined foe? Will the catchweight of 159 pounds come into play at all?

We'll take a look at that fight and also assess the past weekend’s action.

What the heck happened in Macau? And did Nonito Donaire do anything to prove he’s still operating near the top level of boxing? Additionally, what will the fallout be from Carl Froch’s big revenge knockout of George Groves?

We take a stab at answering all these questions in this week’s edition of the hottest storylines in boxing.
