RIP Tommy Morrison, dead at 44.


Tommy Morrison, former WBO heavyweight champion and star of Rocky V passed away in Nebraska yesterday, so in honor of the late, great boxer, we choose not to mention his lifestyle and questionable decisions, and simply pay homage with a highlight and kind words from his close friend Tony Holden:

“If Tommy was fighting today, he no doubt would be a world champion,” Holden said. “You have to look at who he was fighting in the ’90s, the guys in that division were Tyson, Lennox Lewis, Riddick Bowe, Ray Mercer, George Foreman. There’s no one with that talent today. Tommy would absolutely dominate if he were in his prime boxing today.”
