Notice the lesions on his forearm and the rotting finger on his hand.
If you believe that's his most recent pic then you shouldn't be posting in this thread.

Damn, how in the hell did they convince Tommy those ab and chest implants were a good idea.

Anyways, I hope the guy is still alive and can get into some kind of treatment center for his addictions.

Tommy is alive. But some idiot radio broadcaster gave a 1 hour interview to a fake Tommy Morrison. So, that may of started some of these rumours. That don't even sound like Tommy. And Tommys Wife has since said that he hasnt given any interviews within the time that interview happend because he is very ill. The interview starts at about 12 minutes.

He tested negative reportedly 11 different times from December 2006 to February 2007, and it was one of these negative tests that was able to get him the license in West Virginia.

HOWEVER Morrison tested positive again for HIV and Hepatitis C after the John Castle Fight and right before he fought that MMA guy out on the indian reservation. His former lawyer, Randy Lang, was getting him fights based on the fact that Tommy was suffering HIV discrimination, and being properly medicated should not prevent him from earning a living in the ring.

He had the Castle Fight, then his next fight was supposed to be against Dale Ortiz in Houston, TX, but that was cancelled when Morrison himself withdrew the license application. Randy Lang told USA Today that he distanced himself from Morrison when Morrison began to tell the public that he had never been infected with HIV, nor did he ever take medication for the virus. Lang says Morrison was fit and strong in 2007 due to being on HIV antiretrovirals and also perscription anabolic steroids to cope with the weight loss. Lang said Morrison was a chain-smoking, 160 pound shell of a heavyweight when he first met him in 2005....

We need a good investigative journalist to dig into this one.
It's never gonna happen. Wherever Tommy was last staying, I believe Pigeon Forge TN, his wife claimed they don't have any internet access, hence the "lack of updates" on her part. Consider that until about December of 2011, Tommy was on the internet constantley emailing fans, visiting message boards, etc. Tommy was always friendly to all of his fans and answered every email, until all of a sudden when he went totally quiet.

There is a poster on here, Russ010, who has done a series of interviews with Morrison and his wife, and he got to know them closely, and he has not heard from them in some time. Their phone number is evidently disconnected.

Over the summer there was some drama on Tommy's official facebook, someone claiming to be his niece stated that Tommy was in fact dying, and that Trisha (his wife) would not let any of the family or his own kids come and see him. She accused her of letting Tommy get very sick by telling Tommy not to take his medicine because he was fine. Very sad that she would publicly put that out there.

I am a huge fan of the Duke, and i have followed his story very closely, until news on him went TOTALLY QUIET earlier this year. It is very unsettling because on many boxing boards, the opinion is that Tommy has been dead for several months, and his wife is allegedly still cashing his disability checks. Consider that this thing happens in towns all over the USA at any given point, and it isn't so far fetched. I've searched google and came up with dozens of stories where people have continued cashing Disability checks for years after a relative's death. The person getting disability evidently has to check in in person every year, few years, etc. and that is when they get busted when the dead person never shows up....

Thanks for the info ironmark.

Found this on another forum.....


I received this email from Morrison's former trainer, Tom Virgets... but have been unable to get an update since. This was on July 24th, 2012:

Jonny,

Tommy is in the last stages of HIV/AIDS. He is weighing approximately 150 lbs. He has lost most of his mental faculties ( may or may not remember people from day to day)) and spends most of his days in bed. I am afraid that he will not last more than a month or two. Tommy continues to believe that he does not have aids. He is convinced that this most recent set back in his health is due to a spider bite.

Tom

When was the last confirmed contact with Tommy or Trish ? How accurate is this info given ?

Hooked on this shit, what the **** is going on with this guy.

EDIT - Posted that before your second post ironmark

So that "recent" pic of him at the gym is probably from a couple years back as there are no scars on his chest. Also, he definitely looks younger there than he does in his mugshot and in the Fight Night Champion video. The situation is bizarre - a real mystery. I have no real insight on the matter, but if I had to guess just from everything I've seen and read on Facebook and various message boards today as well as over the past few months, I'd say Tommy's either in horrendous shape, actively dying, or dead.
He has HIV but denies it exists.

In regards to the radio interview I can confirm that I have spoken to Trisha and it was NOT Tommy being interviewed. She had no idea of it and had never heard it before. She also confirmed that Tommy had not done any interviews at all during the time stated. The pic being shown on this thread is quite old (maybe early 2010)

it is my understanding that hep c is passed through needles and blood as opposed to ***ual contact. i know someone that allegedly contracted this virus from a tattoo artist who apparantly had a cut on his finger when he was admistering a tat on said person. tatto artist died and my friend didnt know he had hep until seven years later. one of his symptoms was an enlarged stomach that he had to have periodically drained, similar to what the photo of morrison shows.

what was the theory of how morrison contracted hiv?

appreciate your insight on morrison by the way.
