Pryor has some of the neccessary attributes to win against Pea, namely workrate, good combinations, and the absolute willingness to force the fight. Sadly, he was open a lot of the time and for a keen observer his shots could be predicted.

Close, clear, uncomfortable UD for Pea who turns, slides and sharpshoots.

Pryor would be fighting at a pace too high for Sweet Pea, who'd be making Aaron miss a lot but wouldn't be able to do enough for the judges. I believe that it takes a puncher who doesn't do much thinking in the ring to stop Pryor. Aaron doesn't let you any time to think.

Whitaker shines against a fighter who gives him breathing room. Chavez, for all his rep as a pressure fighter, played right into Whitaker's hands by allowing Whitaker space, which Whitaker exploited to the max with his angles. This is a lot like Hopkins who thrives on slowing a fight down to a snail's pace. The fighter's that had success against him (Taylor and Calzaghe) threw a bazillion punches at him. Whitaker, whose forte was his defensive angles against a fighter open to the counter, would not enjoy one moment of relaxation against Pryor. This is not to say he wouldn't land the counter on Pryor, but Whitaker never had the kind of punch that would make Pryor sit up and take notice. I see Pryor blazing away for a one-sided win.

Whitaker gets on his back foot and makes Pryor chase him. Whitaker lands pot shots from a distance. Pryor will try to close the distance, and will have limited secuess, but not enough to sway the judges.

Whitaker is vastly better in the skill departament, Pryor could steal some rounds because of his agression but I simply canīt see a guy like Pryor winning more rounds against a defensive genius like Whitaker.

Whitaker dose a lot to make that breathing room for himself, than he is given it. I will agree that Pryor has a better chance than Chavez at closing the gap. However I think Whitaker will be able to use his speed to control the distance.

I think Pernell wins this by UD but a close one. I think Aaron vs. Meldrick ends up Pryor KO 10 or 11 over Meldrick.

Pete just did not allow himself to be walked down. This would be a bad style match-up for Pryor. I genuinely believe Buddy McGirt was just as hard an opponent as Pryor would've been from a stylistic POV.

I actually think Pryor would be very difficult for Whitaker.

Tough fight, both can win, but I think Pryor would overwhelm Pea. Pryor could also box really well when he wanted to and punched from all angles.

The Original "Hawk Time".

Pryor by decision at 140.
