Morrison Has Many Offers

Compiled From Wire Services

Heavyweight Tommy Morrison has had no shortage of offers in his bid for a comeback fight after testing positive for HIV, his promoter says.

George Foreman, who faces Crawford Grimsley on Nov. 2 in Tokyo, has formally issued Morrison an invitation to fight on that undercard and repeated his desire to meet Morrison in 1997.

Morrison will not fight in November, but a Foreman-Morrison rematch may eventually take place, Morrison’s longtime promoter Tony Holden said.

Morrison, who announced his retirement in February after testing positive for HIV, said last month that he would fight again to raise money for his Knockout AIDS foundation.
