On Saturday night, Kell Brook traveled across the pond and lifted Shawn Porter's IBF Welterweight Championship with a clear decision victory (114-114, 117-111, 116-112) at the StubHub Center in Carson, California.

The 28-year-old Brook proved many of his naysayers wrong, outboxing the aggressive Porter and demonstrating that he belongs in the conversation among the best young welterweights in the world. 

With his big win, we ponder how far "The Special One" can go and assess how Porter can recover from his first loss.

Then we move on to action coming in the weeks ahead, looking at the Floyd Mayweather vs. Marcos Maidana 2 undercard and whether it will generate any additional pay-per-view sales.

Rumor has it that Gennady Golovkin's next fight is nearly finalized, but should fans be excited?

Finally, is a return to the friendly confines of Cincinnati just what Adrien Broner needs to get his career back on firm footing?

These are the hottest boxing storylines for the upcoming week.
