The Hottest Boxing Storylines for the Week of June 30
John Peterson/Associated Press

Terence Crawford took a big step toward becoming a boxing star Saturday night, knocking out Yuriorkis Gamboa to retain his WBO Lightweight Championship at the CenturyLink Center in Omaha, Nebraska. Was the win enough to put Crawford on the path to becoming a star? And can Gamboa, once a potential superstar himself, recover from his first career defeat?

Golden Boy Promotions has announced its next card at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, and it appears to be something of a dud. Is this a sign of things to come?

Also, Golden Boy's legal issues have begun in the wake of this month's bombshell resignation of its longtime CEO. What will this mean for the sport going forward?

Speaking of Barclays and duds, why is Danny Garcia taking a step back for his next fight? Have the powers that be lost some faith in him?

Finally, do the lackluster Cotto vs. Martinez pay-per-view numbers show that boxing needs to re-evaluate its PPV model? 

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