I have read several articles about morrison over the years and from what I have read he does have HIV. I don't remember the sources and you never know how accurate everything you read is but here is a synopsis. They stated that Morrison is on a slew of HIV medicine and apparently what happens is the HIV in your blood count goes down to undetectable levels. So this would explain why some tests come back negative and some positive, depending on how well the medicine is working. I guess in cases where maybe he misses a dose or other factors like maybe he has a cold or his body resistance is low, he shows a positive test. Other times when he is doing good the HIV becomes undetectable and the test comes out negative.
I also read an article from his lawyer during his whole legal debacle and the lawyer said that he was in really bad shape because he wasn't taking his HIV medicine. The lawyer said that Tommy was in denial trying to prove that he didn't have HIV and he was getting real sick.
I have recently heard on the news where one person who had HIV was apparently cured. The person had cancer and received a bone marrow transplant. And apparently the new immune system from the bone marrow not only fought of the Leukemia but also attacked and killed the HIV. But they said that this is very rare because it was some sort of genetic condition in the donors bone marrow that was different and made it destroy the HIV. I have also heard on the news of studies they are doing on prostitutes in Africa and there is a person who should have Aids and doesn't. They believe it is that her immune system is resistent to the Virus. So apparently her body fights it off and is able to destroy the Virus.
It seems like that is the way they will be working towards the cure is by finding out how certain people's immune system is able to attack and destroy the virus.
My question about Morrison would be is he on HIV medicine. If he is on medicine that will be the answer. Rather than asking him to take an HIV test, lets ask him if he is on HIV medicine, then we will have our answer.
Yeah I read the stuff about him being on the meds, but I believe he said he stopped taking the meds and was still testing clean. His problem though is he's had the chance to clear this up. He talked about some big thing in Vegas where he would be settling it once and for all, and then it never happened.
The fights he HAS had have all been at places that did not require him to get blood tests, or they didn't test for HIV. So I just figured that Quebec would obviously test for that type of thing, and by him fighting there, that would mean that he would get tested and his tests would be made public.
The lawyer that said that stuff, for what it's worth, has been beefing with Tommy for awhile over some money I believe. I know Tommy was pissed that he was talking shit about him and saying he was sick and whatnot.
I don't know, man. I used to LOVE this dude fighting, and thought he was the shit. I even loved Rocky 5. lol.
But now man...I look at him and he just looks different to me. Not meaning his condition, just his face. It looks all fucked up now for some reason, and not from taking punches I don't think. Maybe it's from the drug use, I dunno.
And he seems like more of a douchebag now too. I dunno what the deal is.
I will say this, and I've said it before. If he can PROVE that it was a false positive that got him blacklisted from the sport, ohhhhhhhhhhhhhh shit can you imagine the lawsuit? This motherfucker was about to fight Tyson for that BIG money. He was in line for some big fights, and that all went away.
If it was ME, and I honestly believed it was a false positive and I had been wrongfully kicked out, I'd be kicking in doors and making as much noise as possible. Fuck that. The fact that he DIDN'T do that, gives me pause as to whether or not he's just bullshitting.
