Tommy Morrison, a former WBO boxing heavyweight champion, will make his mixed martial arts debut Saturday at World Fighting Championship in Camp Verde, Arizona.

He is scheduled to face the 340-pound John Stover, who is being billed as having 8 professional MMA fights.

Morrison, who has zero mixed martial arts training, is calling this fight a one-time thing to help out his advisor Peter McKinn and to earn some extra money along the way.

Morrison left boxing in 1995 after receiving a positive HIV test. Earlier this year, Morrison was able to prove that the positive test was false and was approved of a boxing license by the West Virginia Athletic Commission. He officially returned to the boxing ring on February 22 by scoring a second-round knockout over John Castle.
