AIDS Claims Life of Heavyweight Boxing Champ Tommy Morrison

September 2nd, 2013

Tommy Gun Dead From AIDS

Former world heavyweight champion Tommy Morrison, best known for his role in Rocky V and a very public HIV diagnosis, died last night in Nebraska of undisclosed causes, reports the Tulsa World. He was 44. “It’s true,” says his former promoter. “He was with his wife Trisha when he passed.” Morrison claimed the World Boxing Organization’s title in a victory over George Foreman in June 1993; he lost it four months later in a first-round knockout to a newcomer. “I zigged when I should have zagged,” he later said. “It’s one of those situations you have to live with and learn from it. I’ll be back.” His lifetime record was 48-3-1.

Morrison starred as Tommy “Machine” Gunn in Rocky V. But perhaps his most public moment came in 1996, when he admitted amid a media firestorm that he had tested positive for HIV and had been suspended by the Nevada Athletic Commission. Morrison tearfully apologized to “a number of sparring partners out there that I worked with, and more importantly, the young ladies that I’ve been involved with,” and urged them to get tested. Morrison later denied that he was HIV-positive, notes the AP, and attempted to resume his career. He fought as recently as 2008 in Mexico.

    Maybe a health professional could clarify, but outside of blood transfusions and needle usage isn’t it rare for a male to contract HIV through heterosexual relations?

    (TRILLIONS AND TRILLIONS of profit worldwide)

    Notice how Magic became damn near a billionaire AFTER the announcement?

    Magic Johnson can barely read, write and speak English . Do you really think he has the business acumen to do what he has done in the business world with a 7th grade reading comprehension?
    Im not saying you need a college degree to be a success in business, but you do need a very good grasp of reading, riting and rithmetic.

    I think it’s a bit of a stretch to say Serena is ill because of European Caucasians. Rather, it is likely that her absence of good judgment, which may be what is driving her to hook up with those same men, is also the failing which has caused her to develop medical problems. Of course it could simply ne that her number was punched after years of being the picture of health and fitness and she is no more immune to all illness than the rest of us.

    Just my opinion, but I think as Serena sees herself as no longer the young carefree girl, she has begun to engage in some panic driven acts which she will come to regret someday. I am specifically talking about her alleged lesbian trysts with Kelly Rowland and others. I do not think that Serena is a lesbian at all I just think she is starting to be a tad desperate, and that has lead to some bad decision making.
    I think in the end, she will come out of it the winner she is.

    SMH at some of the ignorant comments. It’s 2013 and there are still people who believe that HIV is a gay disease. That’s the main reason many straight men catch it. They think they can fuck as many women as possible without condome. It doesn’t work that way. Wrap it up

    [Reply]

    anonymous Reply:

    You are the idiot. You can catch every sexually transmitted disease from sexual contact, even with a condom(herpes is most often spread through genital area contact not covered by a rubber, but it is a goddam LIE that women pass hiv to men at the same rate which women pass it to males.
    Come on y’all! A man shoots his stuff INTO the woman’s insides. A man has to have open sores or cuts on his penis to become infected by a females secretions.
    If this were not the case, the entire population would be as beset by HIV infection as the gay and IV drug using people have been. AND after 30+ years, YOU KNOW THAT IS NOT THE CASE!
    There is a small but vocal group of men on this site who wish to proclaim loudly the HIV is a heterosexual problem as much as it is a gay one.
    THAT is their agenda. But it simply is not accurate. The National Institutes of Health developed a program in 2000 which was killed in ONE DAY after the NIH ran a full page ad in USA Today. Th slogan was, “It’s time to own it. HIV is a gay problem and the time has come to admit it.”
    It so inflamed the homosexual lobby and activists that the entire campaign was scrubbed. The sole reasons that gay men do not want to approach the pandemic from that perspective is that they fear that if the general public finally sees it as primarily a gay disease, the rest of the population will no longer care; and, therefore the funding for research will slow considerably. As long as the fly-over gullibles believe that their daughter and son could possibly be stricken, they are amenable to encouraging their state/Federal politicians to allotting funds for the cause.

    This will be decried by the gay men who will scream and yell that it is utter bullshit. And they will likely proffer the absurd argument that because AIDS is a heterosexual problem in third world countries, we should view it as such in the West. But AIDS in Africa and parts of Asia is NOT the same disease which is seen in the US and other developed nations. The immune suppression suffered by nearly all the folks who drink tainted water on a daily basis is the reason which “AIDS” kills easily in those underdeveloped countries. The folks in those areas average a life expectancy of approximately 40 years even if they never HAVE AIDS.
    So pound away boys. Tell all your anecdotal tales and spew your fallacious data. You do it so very well. But at the end of the day, women are not dying from having sexual intercourse with a man who has never been with a man. PERIOD. END OF STORY.

    I agree with you, but if a man sleeps with enough women, he gonna catch something, even if it ain’t AIDS.

    I think AIDS is AN ANAL SEX DISEASE. The anus is a dirty place. The penis is porous so not only do receivers get it but inserters can get it from back there too. If the anus tears, shit and semen can get into your system.

    [Reply]

    anonymous Reply:

    You’ll get no argument from me as to what you just stated. If gay men did not have anal sex, THEY wouldn’t b transferring a blood borne disease either. In that sense, it is not a “gay” problem, it is a butt sex problem. Sorry to be so crude, but that’s the truth. Gay men could have oral all day long and never transmit the virus.

    [Reply]

    Sick of bein nice Reply:

    You can both transmit and receive HIV through oral sex. If you’re positive & your gums are bleeding (just brushed teeth before date), you can infect your partner with open contact to your secretions. It is possible to contract the virus that way.

    Damn, real sad. Heard him and his wife speak at Al Sharpton’s NAN in Harlem about 3 years ago. It was a symposium about whether or not AIDS was a hoax.

    I asked him directly if he thought folks were after him and put that lie out about him having AIDS and he said probably. His wife was there and she said they have unprotected sex and she always tests negative every six months. Tommy said that he tested positive on the ELISA test, but negative on the test they use in Africa and in Europe.

    This AIDS thing is a mystery. That’s all I can say.

    He was passionate about his beliefs on AIDS and cool guy. RIP Mr. Morrison.

    Boxing is one dirty sport. RIP Tommy.

    Tell that to Ryan White and Elizabeth Glaser. You AIDS denial people are hilarious. OF COURSE AIDS is not a disease in the sense that smallpox and polio are diseases. It is a syndrome where a number of maladies are present, combined with a dearth of T-cells to fight true diseases. Cancer, wasting disease and toxoplasmosis are just a short list of the diseases which must be present in order to declare that one has “AIDS”.

    Why in the world do people dwell on the definition of AIDS in order to deny it?

    You can catch a bad cold and lower your T-cells.

    Your T-cells will rise again as soon do what you can to get healthier and the symptoms of your cold subsides.

    Many pregnant women test positive for HIV because the child is a burden on the immune system during the early stages of pregnany.

    Read the insert of any HIV testing Kit and it will tell you that the “test” should not be used as a determining factor alone as to the diagnosis of HIV and they cover themselves legally from that responsibility.

    An HIV test is no more reliable or scientific than a lie detector test.

    anonymous Reply:

    Dammit, that is why you are NOT diagnosed with AIDS based on any one single malady or illness or your T cell count. For the love of gawd.
    There must be several conditions present to diagnose a patient with AIDS. NO, T cell count is NOT the determining factor. It is A factor. Cancer is another factor. PCP is another factor and wasting disease is yet another. You do not have to have ALL the conditions, but you must have a preponderance of associated conditions to be given the final diagnosis of full blown AIDS.

    The people who CREATED THE DEFINITION for the SYNDROME called AIDS, decided to include over 50 Diseases to create this new SYMDROME.

    By there definition pretty much everybody has AIDS, because at one time or another in our lives who hasn’t had a cold,or been pregnant, or ha=d some form of cancer or one of the other 47 diseases?

    You cant cure a person unless you cure a SPECIfIC disease. You can cure or apply pharmeceuticals or vaccines towards a created SYNDROME.

    AIDS is nothing more than a population control method to prevent the births of non-white people.

    Its also a huge money scam that has tricked off TRILLIONS of dollars to Drug Manufacturers.

    Do you think Jerry Lewis and those clowns will ever collect enough money to cure MS?
    Theres no money in a cure. The money is in collecting donations.

    Of course they have had the cure for cancer for years, but do you think they will ever share it with the public unless there was more profit in dealing with healthy people?
    There is more profit in selling and manufacturing drugs, in cutting and chemo treatments. In making the machines for chemo etc.

    The virus is real. Anyone ever read” behold a pale white horse” by william cooper? The book gives the name of the man who created the virus.why was the virus created? To get of the undesirables( homosexuals,blacks,and browns) a form of eugenics. The virus was given 2 homosexual men unknowingly as a vaccine for a form of hepatitus(reason why I don’t do vaccinations u never know what they are putting in there and are goverment has a long history of experimenting on the people). I guess they didn’t consider down low men and bisexual men sleeping with white woman in the equation,prob don’t care though cause the end goal is population control by any means………………

    And back in the day condoms were not safe, anyone recall when all those condoms were thrown out of the aircraft to the africans? Those condoms were infected,they sure were,combine infected condoms and bogus vaccinations and you got the answer to why the hiv and aids rate is so high in africa.

    But since the doctor made the virus he also made a cure,common folks will never get there hands on it because it would not be profitable for the big pharmacutical companies and it would defeat the purpose of population control, bone marrow transplants cure victims of the virus I’ve read,but heck who has money or health insurance for that? Not many people………………what the powers that be don’t want you to know is you can cure any disease or virus without the help of a magic pill made by big pharma or a doctor. Simply get your ph balance in check make your body more akaline then acidic, which can be done through healthy diet and vitamins.no disease or virus can live in a body that has the proper akaline rate. Heck 98 percent of doctors wouldn’t recomend chemo to their friends or family,they recomend a clean eating( no gmo,no gluten,no steriods in food,no antibiotics in food,)basically fruit vegtables and meat and not fruit and vegtables in a can or freezer section.

    ThIs is why the African American community will always have to deal with this disease. You can get HIV from oral,vaginal and anal sex. There Are straight people who get the disease from heterosexual intercourse who aren’t sleeping with DL men. Every male who contracts the disease isn’t DL.If you’re nasty and sleep around unprotected more than likely you will get the disease. Some of you all are spreading misinformation about this disease, so it’s no wonder you know people who have it, listening to you they would think they are immune to it. This whole theory bs can be debunked by stop listening to people with no medical background and simply going to a class or talking to a doctor about it.if you think gay guys are the only ones getting it, you’re saddly mistaken and you need to talk to all the straight females in Africa where they kill gay men, who have the disease.

    Pray tell why it is more of a problem in the Black hetero community than it is in the white hetero community??

    If being nasty is the criterion for seroconverting to HIV+, then my white gf’s should all be positive. They engage in threesomes and sleep with nearly every good looking, wealthy man they meet. Yet my only gf who is HIV+ is a sista. Her husband infected her after a 5 year bid.
    The white chicks could not be bigger freaks sexually acting out, yet the worst thing they have contracted is herpes. You see, they don’t have a big DL problem in their community. When a white boy is gay, he ain’t afraid of the church folk shunning him or his momma disinviting him from Sunday dinner. He just come on out with it and the parents best accept it or say goodbye. Black men don’t have that freedom and you know it. So they stay hiding and trying to pass as straight.
    I am about done with arguing with you. You think you are the smartest most gotdammed informed person on this site but you just a MARY trying to justify your own feelings. So go on and spread your bullshit. Most women know the real deal Holyfield already thank Jesus.

    Anyone notice in the advertisement on HSK “VIEW ANYONES CRIMINAL RECORD ONLINE”, noticed the racial and aesthetic differences between the white woman and the black man?

    They have a white woman who looks like they could be a cheerleader and an obese black man who looks like a Jabba the Hut monster.

    They had the choice of 1000′s of convicted felons photos and Im sure plenty of those photos included white women who look like the “after” picture in the changing faces of meth diary.

    Im also sure they have picture of black convicted felons who look like Denzel.
