    RIP Tommy Morrison

    Former HW Champ and Jay, Oklahoma native passed away yesterday at his home in Nebraska. Many are speculating it is from complications from HIV. Although Tommy claimed not to have it until even a few days ago. In any case, I have first hand knowlage of this guy and he was a class act. He had alot of the impulses and desires same as some of us on here. He was human and lived a full life nothing more, nothing less.

    I got to meet him & his Mom at a boxing gym in OKC and again in Dallas 20 yrs ago. I know for a fact he donated over a million dollars to Childrens Hospital in Dallas and again to OKC. (Thats more than Troy Aikman gave to either facility) The guy gave away his name and time just for the fans. It known around his home town, that if you know where his mom lives, (in a double wide trailer in Jay, OK) you can go by there and get all the autographed pics and posters of him you want for free. She was so proud of him, all you had to to is ask her. You wont be doing that at ARods Momas house.

    I wish the press had given him the credit he was due not just as a fighter but as a good person. Then stayed the **** out of his personal life. RIP Bro God bless you and your Mother.

    I remember watching him when I was a kid. Hopefully he lived a good life. Died young.
