Williams, Pryor Jr. in action!

Hall of Fame boxing trainer Emanuel Steward will return to Cincinnati with super middleweight prospect Aaron Pryor Jr. on Saturday night at the U.S. Bank Arena. Pryor Jr., 11-1-0 (8 KOs), son of legendary world champion Aaron “The Hawk” Pryor Sr., will battle in the eight round co-main event against southpaw William Prieto, 5-3-1 (2 KOs). “Aaron was upset in his last bout, but I’m glad to see him getting back in the ring just five weeks later. It’s better to get back in than to let it linger after a first loss with a prospect” said Steward. ‘He’s been training hard here at Kronk, sparring with Andy Lee who’s a southpaw like Prieto. I’ve liked what I’ve see of Aaron in the gym these last few weeks and I’m looking for a great performance from him on Saturday.” The card is headlined by the return of 2000 U.S. Olympian Ricardo Williams who returns to his hometown of Cincinnati for the first time in almost five years. Williams, 13-2 (7 KOs), will face Puerto Rican native Doel Carrasquillo, 12-9-1 (10 KOs) in the eight round main event. For tickets ($79.75, $40.75 and $23.75) call 513-462-4949.
