Morrison had great offensive abilities- massive power, put nice combos together with decent speed.

His biggest problem was that he was overly tight and tense, which I believe were the real culprits with his chin and stamina.

I agree and like I believe it was TBear that said it, he sure was always exciting to watch.

Just meh.

You can't be an attacking fighter if you can't take a shot.

Good enough offensive fighter, but never world champion material.

Plus, Sylvester Stallone whupped him in an alley fight.

I'd rather have more Tommy Morrisons in the sport than Chad Dawsons.

I always remember when Michael bent sparked him. That was a pretty brutal KO.

I know Larry Holmes used to knock him and say he was overrated. He was a dynamite puncher, though. He had an awesome left hook that kinda rivals prime Cooney's. I always wondered what kind of fight he and Gerry would have had. Tommy's only problem was his chin seemed to be a bit suspect. If he had a Tyson or Holyfield chin he may've had more success. I thought he should have worked on his defense a bit moreso, as well. He put punches together beautifully especially toward the end of the Ruddock fight. God bless him. Let's pray we don't lose him to illness.

Tommy's fight either he got KOed or he KOed somebody. Either way would come in spectacular manner no matter which way the KO came

He did party a lot and with his weak chin it wasn't a good recipe. That dude had one of the best left hooks that Ive ever seen

I'll always remember Morrison for being totally exposed by Lennox Lewis. But he sure did have a sweet left hook.

Exposed by Lennox Lewis??!!! I don't see how he can seriously be faulted for that. Lewis exposed practically everyone he's ever been in the ring with.

Huge power, some speed, good size but a weak chin. A good contender but he wouldn't beat the 90's best heavys.
