Too bad his chin wasn't as good as his punch. RIP Tommy.

He admitted to steroids use.

His HIV issue hurt him badly too.

He sure went out hard. At 44. Bedridden for the last year of his life.


Every day on this side of the ground is a win.

Yep. A sad ending for the young man.

Youtube has a series of 'The legendary power of xxxxxxxxx' videos. I like the Butterbean ones. That guy could HIT. Too bad his size and health wouldn't let him go beyond 4 rounds. I don't think he ever fought Morrison.

Tommy "The Fluke" Morrison was just a juiced up moron with no skills.

But, he was white, and a heavyweight.

He beat the shat outta tomato cans, until he became the tomato can.

Bet that homage don't contain the fight against "Merciful" Ray Mercer.

The Fluke got the shat beat outta him by a guy that couldn't find his own corner, after four tries.

I don’t know or follow boxing, but he has two sons that are members of “The Four State Franchise” Trey and Kenzie. They’re somewhat local and have promos in local radio. Trey is ranked sinething like 29th of 455 right now, for what it’s worth.

Dude let fame go to his head. No matter what though, many had a tough time with his left hook right uppercut combo. Not Tyson power, but more than most.

I knew Tommy Morrison. Saw his first professional fight in person ringside. Always fun to hear from people who know nothing.

I met TM and had a couple drinks with him and his bombshell GF in my boy's place in the Boston Fens neighborhood less than 2 weeks after his 'bout' with Razor Rudduck. The kid could punch for sure and had a monster left hand but he sucked at pool. I got him for $400 playing 9 ball before I had to bounce. He was a good sport though, and a nice guy. When he opened his attache to break me off I saw what was easily $75k stacked up. That was in '95 or so. Not for nothing but Tommy wasn't visiting to buy Tupperware... wink

Pass on what you know about Tommy. I’d like to hear it.

I always enjoyed watching him and hoped the best for him.

As stated earlier, lifestyle choices have some serious consequences. frown

Nino Rodriguez managed to escape drug and alcohol addiction and is now doing some good videos on BitChute. Fame is a lot of people's worst opponent.

Were it not for HIV (which, I assume, came from his lifestyle), he'd have been heavyweight champ.
