Tommy Morrison’s sons share a bill this weekend in Oklahoma

Phil Jay 06/10/2014

Trey Lippe, son of former WBO heavyweight champion Tommy Morrison, will continue his career on Saturday night when the rugged prospect fights Matt Foster over four rounds at Buffalo Run Casino in Miami, Oklahoma.

The 25 year-old, who has knocked out all four of his opponents since entering the paid ranks in February, will join brother Kenzie Witt, 24, on the bill as Lippe’s younger sibling moves up from the amateurs.

Both Lippe and Witt possess their famous father’s trademark blonde locks and have seemingly inherited Morrison’s punching power into the bargain as the pair have already built a reputation from scoring concussion victories in the sport.

Witt scored a stoppage in his maiden amateur fight last July in Dewey, prompting him to join Lippe and take the plunge as a professional. His opponent is yet to be announced.

Their Dad, who lit up the sport in the 1990’s by bulldozing his way to world title glory via his damaging left hook, tragically lost his fight for survival in 2013 following a long battle with illness. Morrison’s legacy is certainly living on through his distinct offspring – who are already making headlines of their own in just a short space of time.

Topping the bill this weekend is a six-rounder between Jesse Cook and Jay Krupp at welterweight, although all eyes will be on the Morrison boys come fight night.
