Aaron Pryor, the International Boxing Federation’s world junior-middleweight boxing champion, worked out at a Cincinnati community center for the second straight day and denied he had been hospitalized for drug use in Miami.
Pryor arrived at the workout, scheduled to begin at 3 p.m., 2 hours 15 minutes late. He spent several minutes shadow boxing and working the speed bag. He did not spar.
Pryor’s appearance in Cincinnati, his hometown, ended speculation concerning his whereabouts. Efforts to locate him in Miami, where he was living, were unsuccessful.
This summer, Pryor told Miami police that he was abducted at gunpoint by drug dealers and had his van, a car and other property stolen. Police discounted the abduction but said they had observed Pryor visiting a house where drugs are sold.
