Former Heavyweight boxer Tommy Morrison has passed away.
He died late Sunday at an Omaha, Nebraska hospital. He was 44-years-old.
After he was diagnosed with HIV, Morrison had his personal doctor do a test and indeed it came out that he was HIV positive.
Morrison had admitted that he contracted the disease from a “promiscuous lifestyle.” He also said:
“I lived a permissive, fast and reckless lifestyle. I hope I can serve as a warning that living this lifestyle can really lead to only one thing and that’s misery. The only sure prevention of this disease is abstinence. This disease does not discriminate, and that is very, very clear to me now.”
In a recent ESPN story, it was said that Morrison was kept alive through a feeding tube and ventilator.
We here at Fit With Fallon give our condolences to the family of Tommy Morrison.
