Tommy Morrison, a former heavyweight boxing champion, has died after a long battle with AIDS. He passed away in a Nebraska hospital at the age of 44.
He reportedly died peacefully, with his wife by his side.
Morrion's longtime boxing promoter, Tony Holden, confirmed the death, adding that he had been in and out of the hospital for months battling an illness.
Holden and his family wouldn't specify what ailment.
In 1996, Morrison famously tested positive for HIV, essentially ending his boxing career. He later denied that he had the disease or that it even existed.
