    LOS ANGELES: Boxing Hall of Famer Aaron Pryor, remembered for scintillating duels with Nicaraguan Alexis Arguello, died Sunday (Monday in Manila) at the age of 60 after a long battle with heart disease. “We are heartbroken and sad to announce that our beloved Aaron passed away at home surrounded by his family at 5:57 a.m.” Frankie Pryor, his widow, said in a statement from the family home near Cincinnati, Ohio. Pryor built a 39-1 record with 35 knockouts during a career that was interrupted by drug addiction. His biggest moments in the ring were his two junior welterweight victories over Arguello.
