Tommy Morrison, AKA ‘The Duke’ and ‘Tommy Gunn’ has died. He succumbed to Miller Fisher syndrome having been bed ridden for over a year. This is likely a result of his long running HIV problems, which he incurred in 1995/1996, something he put down to a ‘reckless lifestyle’. Morrison, who claimed to be the grandnephew of John Wayne, was actually a pretty good fighter have gone 52:3:1. Morrison was due to fight Tyson before his career was derailed in what was sure to be one of the more popular (but admittedly probably shorter) 1990’s fights.
RIP Tommy Morrison.
