How so? All we know is that he was hospitalized and he passed away. We don't know his symptoms or why he was in the hospital.
The guy was a boxer. Given the propensity for brain damage or potential side effects from steroid use, there could be a lot of explanations to his passing that have nothing to do with his alleged HIV.
It's certainly possible he did have AIDS. And that might indeed be the reason he died. But at this point, that's nothing more than a big assumption.
