Aaron Pryor, a true super-lightweight great, died earlier today (October 9) at the age of 60.

The former WBA and IBF super-lightweight champion passed away after a long battle with heart disease.

“Aaron was known around the world as ‘The Hawk’ and delighted millions of fans with his aggressive and crowd-pleasing boxing style,” widow Frankie Pryor said. “But to our family, he was a beloved husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle and friend.”
