He was my hero in High School. Now I don't know what to feel about what he did with his life.

Back in my Top Rank days, Tommy Morrison was the first fighter camp that I worked with when he was training for the George Foreman fight. Spent 4 weeks at VMI handling his PR.

I have a picture with his mom and his whole crew in the locker room after he won the belt.

The article makes it sound like he has aids....His mom said this



"She says he has full-blown AIDS. She believes he's in his final days. His skin is jaundiced; his liver is failing. "He's too far gone,"

Yeah I think he has AIDS, but had delusions that it's a conspiracy against him... At least that's how I took it? Phone Post 3.0

I knew things weren't going to well for him for a long time but that didn't make it any easier to read that story, really sad.

May God be with him. Phone Post 3.0

That must have been glorious. Foreman bitched and moaned about how Tommy fought that fight - but that was Tommy's night.

He was young and didn't have the discipline. I remember he was set to fight Lennox Lewis and we even had the media tour mapped out for Europe and US.

Someone from outside Top Rank (I won't mention names) convinced him to take a "tune-up" fight on HBO against Michael Bendt in OKC.

His training camp before that fight was AWFUL. He got busted at the hotel pool at 2 am with girls.

His trainer wanted to call the fight off but they went through with it and he got knocked down 3 times in the first round and lost the fight due to the 3 knockdown rule in the WBO. That was pretty much the beginning of the end.
