“I know how Tommy Morrison got AIDS,” says Stanford & Sons main man Craig Glazer. “He said he got the virus – or whatever he thought he had – from a stripper he was dating in Texas. A girl that he was just banging and she supposedly had a boyfriend that was gay.
“Anyway, she apparently got the virus from her roommate that was gay – according to Morrison – and he made love to her when she was on her period and got her blood into his blood and Tommy didn’t know she was infected.
“Here’s the deal; Tommy had a big tool,” Glazer continues. “I know, because he used to run into those adult stores and get lube or whatever, and I said, ‘Why do you get that?’ And he said, ‘Because I have a big one and I like to stick it into (the back door).”
As for word from a source close to Morrison that he knew that he was HIV positive in 1989, “It’s possible,” Glazer says. “But he mainly didn’t want anybody to think he was gay. That’s what all the denial stuff was about.”
Glazer’s ticket to Team Tommy involved an HBO movie about the fallen boxer’s life that Glazer was negotiating for on Morrison’s behalf.
“I was negotiating for an HBO movie about Tommy’s life,” says Glazer, who also produced a series of Champions Forever boxing videos. “And he would have made between $100,000 and $150,000, but the big thing was he wanted to play himself in the movie. And the answer to that was they didn’t think he was a good enough actor.”
