Funeral plans are being made for former heavyweight champion Tommy Morrison, who passed away on Sunday.

Morrison, who played Tommy "The Machine" Gunn in the film "Rocky V," tested positive for HIV back in 1996.

He had denied having the disease, and his family has not disclosed the cause of death.

In 1993, Morrison beat George Foreman to win the World Boxing Organization heavyweight title.

He was 44 years old.
