Buffalo Rumble

Lippe Morrison wins 2nd pro bout in 52 seconds

MIAMI, OK — Trey Lippe Morrison needed just 52 seconds Saturday at Buffalo Run Casino to floor Oklahoma City's Ronald Burchfield and improve his career record to 2-0.

Lippe Morrison, 24, had no ring experience seven months ago. Now, the son of heavyweight champion Tommy Morrison has a perfect career record after two fights.

Lippe Morrison, a heavyweight, put Burchfield on his back with an overhand right, prompting referee Gerald Ritter to call the four-round fight after less than a minute.

Lippe Morrison defeated Oklahoma City's Kris Renty in the second round of his debut in February, also at Buffalo Run.

In what was billed as The Night of The Future Champions 2, Lippe Morrison said he was calmer than in his debut.

Burchfield made his own pro debut Saturday, though he had fought in over 30 bouts as an amateur.

Though Lippe Morrison lives in Tulsa, he is introduced before matches as hailing from Vinita, where he played high school football. He also played at Central Arkansas.

Lippe Morrison is the adopted son of Adair head football coach Mark Lippe.

Lippe expects to fight again in about a month after taking nearly three months between his debut and sophomore bouts to correct his technique.
