Aaron Pryor, the relentless junior welterweight who fought two memorable bouts with Alexis Arguello, has died. He was 60. Pryor’s family issued a statement saying the boxer died at his home in Cincinnati after a long battle with heart disease. Pryor was named the greatest junior welterweight of the century by the Associated Press, and was inducted into the International Boxing Hall of Fame in 1996. He would later travel the world making personal appearances and spreading his anti-drug message.
