AAPRP wants fight postponed!

The American Association of Professional Ringside Physicians (AAPRP) is strongly recommending that that proposed contest between Tommy Morrison and Corey Williams scheduled for this Saturday at the Albany Fair Grounds, Laramie, Wyoming, be postponed. A statement from the AAPRP says:
“As referenced in multiple reports over the past twelve years, Mr. Morrison has not been able to document negative HIV status thereby not meeting the minimum medical requirements to insure the safety and protection of himself, his opponent or ring officials. As such, the AAPRP is concerned about the potential of transmission of infectious diseases should bleeding occur. Currently, the State of Wyoming does not have a boxing commission. Thus, we recommend that this fight be canceled until such time as an appropriate supervisory commission is appointed to oversee the medical aspects of this contest and blood test are performed by an AAPRP approved physician to document the health status of each competitor. Should this contest take place without proper regulatory oversight and experienced medical personnel, we believe there is a possibility that the health and safety of the competitors and ring officials may be compromised; an unnecessary risk which should not be permitted.”
