    Default Did Tommy Morrison NOT have HIV?

    I heard someone say that back when Tommy Morrison was tested positive for HIV, the results were later found to be false. Is this true? (I just heard this, so if I'm wrong, please forgive )

    People with HIV, who are taking good care of themselves and who take the right drugs, can have their HIV go into remission and it will not show up on a test. However, they still have HIV, and will always have HIV.

    A couple years ago Tommy passed an HIV test and has since claimed that he no longer has it. However, he has been reluctant to retake another test. Considering that he failed several tests in the mid 90's, most people think his HIV has just become undetectable.

    Morrison however, is looking for one last payday and is trying to convince the world that he never had HIV to begin with.

    I didn't know HIV would go into remission. I'm happy for him. But he could still easily spread it through blood or sex, couldn't he?

    He is still contagious. It is just not detectible through modern testing.

    A couple of months ago, Bob Arum announced he was going to put Tommy on a latin furey PPV which took place in Mexico, which doesn't require an HIV test. Arum got so much bad publicity, that at the last minute he decided not to televise tommy's fight and terminated their pre-existing contract.

    Oh. Well I don't know about today, but back during his prime he was supposed to have been a very good fighter, much like Tyson.

    Where the hell have you been Clubber? And no Tommy Morrison was never a great fighter. He was a great white fuck up.

    Morrison was told he had HIV , so it ended his career.

    Then last year he got a second opinion from Dr. Nick Riviera , who said he hadnt got it anymore , however he oviously is still HIV positive.
    Remember reality is an illusion caused by a lack of alcohol .

    Sorry but I beg the Differ, Tommy took a total of eleven test from 2006 until now in which all came back negative, I believe he is negative, But he is nothing what he used to be and will get hurt if he steps up.

    Remember when Morrison first came back; he said he would take a public HIV test in Nevada that was monitored by NAC officials. For some reason he just hasn't got around to it.

    An why were his last two fights in West Virginia and Mexico: two places that do not require an AIDS test. Doesn't seem like he is very confident that he can pass a test.

    And in his prime, Morrison was like Tyson, without the chin and stamina. But very exciting.

    Somebody I know told me there are instances of false positives. Depends on the test and what other substances a person might have in his system. It's a shame if that's Tommy's case because that's a stigma that will stick to him for the rest of his life.

    I suspect that Tommy Morrison STILL has HIV and has since he was tested positive way back when.

    He just tried to come back and make some money, at the expense of infecting others, so eff that, thats pretty low IMO.

    Tommy was great in his prime. Now it's time to move on.
