Thursday Night Plans?

I think I need to ask Angelina if I can have the car on Thursday night because just under an hour away from my humble abode in Pittsburgh there will be an interesting spectacle I'd like to see. The guy who played Tommy Gunn in Rocky V, real life boxer Tommy Morrison, will be fighting for the first time in 11 years or so . Some of you might wonder why this is a spectacle, well, our good friend Tommy Gunn (Morrison) hasn't fought in 11 years because he tested positive for HIV back in 1996 on the eve of one of his fights.
This is either going to be a testament to one man beating HIV (not likely) or in the worst case scenario, another nail in the coffin of boxing (probably).

The only question left now is how long it will be before some boxing promoter takes this situation to its logical end and gets Morrison and Tyson in a ring together for what would be the single most bizarre and uncomfortable sporting event ever.
