Former boxing champ Tommy Morrison dies at 44
Former heavyweight champion of the world Tommy Morrison has died at the age of 44.
Former heavyweight champion of the world and Rocky V actor Tommy Morrison has died at the age of 44.
Morrison's former promoter and longtime friend Tony Holden confirmed his death, CBSNews reported. He died in a Nebraska hospital.
"It's true," Holden told the Tulsa World. "He was with his wife Trisha when he passed."
A cause of death has not been officially determined, though Morrison's health has been steadily deteriorating in recent years. In 1996, Morrison twice tested positive for HIV, though he denied having the disease.
An ESPN.com profile of Morrison published last month discussed just how dire the ex-fighter's situation was, as he was on a ventilator and employed a feeding tube.
Morrison finished his career at 48-3-1, with his biggest victory coming in 1993 when he defeated George Foreman in a 12-round bout.
