Thirty-eight year old Tommy Morrison announced Tuesday that he will be returning to the ring this year, signing with Top Ranked promoters for at least 8 fights this year.
Morrison who held the WBO Title in 93 after beating George Foreman, announced his retirement in February 1996 after testing positive for HIV.
Morrison told the press,
