Tommy "The Duke" Morrison fights on
In 1996, Tommy "The Duke" Morrison was one victory away from a showdown with Mike Tyson when a routine pre-fight blood test purportedly determined that he was infected with the HIV virus. The diagnosis effectively ended Morrison's career.
Twenty-three years later, Morrison's widow, Trisha, continues to wage a courtroom battle to prove the diagnosis was bogus from the beginning, most recently by filing a request in a Nevada courtroom to reopen a case that has gone all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court.
Her argument to be reheard is that the defendants -- the Nevada State Athletic Commission (including Dr. Margaret Goodman and former director Marc Ratner) and Quest Laboratories) repeatedly lied and misrepresented facts in previous hearings.
Trisha Morrison returns to The Ringside Boxing Show to lay out the mountains of evidence she's gathered since her husband's 2013 death, including three subsequent tests that show that Tommy Morrison's blood was never tainted with the HIV virus.
This intriguing legal battle finally appears to be entering "the championship rounds," and Trisha is still throwing haymakers in her relentless effort to set the record straight on her late husband's legacy, which, she says, has been misrepresented by most of the mainstream media for more than two decades.
