Tommy Morrison’s sons record first round KO’s, stay undefeated
Trey Lippe Morrison and James ‘Kenzie Morrison’ Witt put on another big show in Miami, Oklahoma on Saturday night as the offspring of former world heavyweight champion Tommy Morrison kept their unbeaten runs intact.
Both campaigning at their famous father’s weight class and sporting one hundred percent knockout records, Lippe Morrison, 25, and Morrison Witt 24, made is seven and four straight victories respectively by halting their foes in the very first round.
Lippe defeated Richard Dawson, whilst Witt out-gunned Brian Imes to the delight of the crowd at the Buffalo Run Casino where all but two of their combined wins have been played out since they entered the paid ranks in 2014.
Some may remember Lippe’s opponent from his encounter with cricketer Freddie Flintoff in November 2012 which Dawson lost controversially 39-38 over four rounds despite putting the ex-England star on the canvas and seemingly doing enough to win.
Witt, who is almost a mirror image of his late dad when both were at the same age, battered hapless Imes into submission meaning the young puncher is still yet to go past the first round since taking out Marvin Babe on his debut five months ago.
The Morrison brothers are currently riding the crest of a wave and creating quite a stir in Oklahoma and beyond due to their likeable father’s achievements in the sport and will be ready to go again possibly within the next few weeks.
Also on the bill, Jesse Cook suffered his first loss in the main event against Patrick Boozer, whilst Jarrett Rouse scored a win over Steven Kollin.
