RIP, He lived a reckless lifestyle before and after the alleged HIV diagnosis. He had the talent to become a great champion but it seemed the discipline was not there and he lived wildly. Gone too young and sucks to hear the news.

Default Tragic news

Yes, it does suck to hear the news of Morrison's passing. So young, far too young. The news of his HIV status was shocking when I first heard it. He must've really lived it up. Damn shame. He had such a promising career. May be rest in peace.

R.I.P. to Tommy Morrison. Kinda interesting that I was bored late Friday or Saturday and I watched Rocky 5 then he dies on Sunday. I'd read that he continue having unprotected sex with his wife/wives even after his HIV diagnosis and refused to take HIV/AIDS medication. So yeah, I guess he may have been a bit reckless, but was fun to watch in the ring.

So he did have AIDS? He claimed he was testing negative.

Tommy Morrison suffered one of the most brutal knockouts I've ever seen (against Ray Mercer) and still want on to win the next 10 or so fights, mostly by KO, and claim a share of the heavyweight championship. Tough guy. That Mercer knockout would have made me quit boxing in a second. RIP.
