The Arguello / Pryor matches were epics (good enough for me and my room mates to spring for pay-per-view). The gentleman had a ton of talent and a lot of class. Sad to see him check out this way.

Wow, that's really too bad. He was one of my favorite boxers. I remember the fight with Pryor very well.

2 great fights with Pryor! A great champion and became a mayor of some city after he retired.
I wonder what went wrong? Hate to see this stuff.
