ABSTRACT
The article focuses on Aaron Pryor Jr., son of boxing champion Aaron Pryor and a boxer himself. It's a name that carries both expectations and opportunities. He knows he's expected to talk about his father, a former junior welterweight champion and perhaps the greatest fighter of his day. He even knows there are some out there who want to see him get knocked out for the simple reason that nobody ever did that kind of thing to the Champion. And of course there's the occasional reporter who has the guts to ask him during a workout if he hopes he can match the Champion's career.
