"Legendary Nights" Alexis Arguello vs. Aaron Pryor

In tribute to the late Alexis Arguello, (one of the finest warriors the boxing world ever had) Let's take a look at one of the most memorable fights in boxing history. Dubbed "Fight of the Year" in 1982 and "Fight of the Decade" of the 1980's.

Pryor started off very strong and won the first half of the fight, but Arguello came back and dominated the middle rounds and had Pryor ready to go in the 12th round after landing a series of explosive right hands. . In the 14th round, Pryor pounded Arguello at will and had him helpless against the ropes when the referee Stanley Christodoulou stopped the fight. However, after the 12th round, rumors circulated that Pryor was given an illegal substance in a water bottle that led to him coming out like a rocket for the beginning of the 13th round. Arguello was later taken to the hospital after the bout due to the beating he had sustained.
