Blind Boxer Can't Be Discriminated Against

from the Milwuakee Journal/Sentinal

Aaron Pryor, former junior welterweight champion from Cincinnati, was granted a license to box in Madison in 1990, despite being legally blind in one eye.

He was approved because of Wisconsin's strict laws against discrimination against anyone with a disability.

Pryor scored a third-round knockout before a crowd of 400 at Madison's Masonic Temple.
