Tommy Morrison RIP
Wow, just read this on line. Bummer deal. I remember this guy when he was a fighter and from Rocky. Thanks for the memories bro!
That's an interesting life he led...
Sad to hear but damn what a left hook!
Never the sharpest tool in the shed, but yeah....... That guy had a powerful left!
rest in peace Tommy Morrison.

I grew up not far from where Tommy was from (about 13 miles) up in NE Oklahoma...he was younger than me, so I wasn't around him, but Tommy did not have a reputation of being a very nice guy. He liked to slap much smaller people around, and was a huge bully when he was younger...but hey, sorry to hear he passed so young.
