Following his death on Sunday, WBN has decided to re-publish this open letter Tommy Morrison sent to us when the former world champion was denied the chance to launch a comeback in 2011.
February 2011 – Former world heavyweight champion Tommy “The Duke” Morrison has been dealt another blow as he tries to resurrect his boxing career, with the news that his February 25th fight in Montreal, Canada against Erik Barrak has been postponed after the governing body in Quebec ask for a blood test sample.
Morrison, 42, then sent this to WBN in response…
I TOMMY “THE DUKE” MORRISON am offering a “REWARD” IN PUBLIC IN FRONT OF THE MEDIA for the first person that can provide me with the ACTUAL HIV VIRUS TEST that detects 100% the presence or the absence of the active HIV VIRUS in the human body.
The HIV VIRUS TEST would be performed Public and in front of the media.
A “VIRUS” is contageous BUT an “antibody” is NOT contageous
“MY GEORGE FOREMAN BELT”
(currently being held captive in the hands of Ronn Scalla) for
“THE ACTIVE HIV VIRUS TEST CONFIRMING 100% Presence or Absence of the HIV VIRUS” (currently being searched for by the World)
Once again for everbody, everywhere, – the media and to a handful of fans that believe I am in “denial”… I Tommy Morrison have NO problem taking a test that will detect the presence or absence of a VIRUS.
My loyal fans have been searching for weeks now and can only find”antibody” tests- (antibodies are NOT contageous)
IF the HIV VIRUS EXISTS then there should be an HIV VIRUS TEST
and one that is approved by the CDC and FDA and where the manufacturers of the test CONFIRM the presence or absence of the HIV VIRUS itself-100%.
Why can no-one provide me with it so that I can get back my livelihood?
I have even contacted Dr.Gallo…if he discovered “HIV”..then why cannot I use the same test to discover if I have or have not this “HIV VIRUS” stigma in my body?
If “HIV” does not exist ( and by the way it is called an “HYPOTHESIS”..= “educated GUESS””OPINION” ) then the “antibody” tests being used out there are meaningless.
I enjoyed my fight against George Foreman – but this fight that I have right now – is BIGGER than the Foreman fight.
FANS – ALL OVER THE WORLD – PLACE THIS ON YOUR FACEBOOK – I NEED YOUR HELP – I AM IN THE BEST SHAPE OF MY LIFE – HEALTHY- DIDN’T DIE 15 YEARS AGO –
WHAT’S GOING ON HERE?
