Trey Lippe, AKA son of Tommy Morrison, turned pro to the tune of 11-0, 11 KO, goes against fellow prospect Ed Black Magic Latimore, 13-0, 7 KO on a big ShoBox card from Buffalo Run Casino, Miami, Oklahoma this Friday, September 23.
Good prospect step up fight for both where perhaps the slightly more accomplished 31 year old Latimore, ranked 91st on Boxrec and fighting out of West Virginia, ventures into the 26 year old Lippe’s home turf at the Buffalo Run. Can’t say I know much about either other than I’ve seen a few clips of Lippe, ranked 111st on Boxrec, and know he’s trained by Freddie Roach. Thus far he shows great power, natural ability, and instincts against the usual suspects, but now crunch time comes. Latimore runs about 6-1, 230 lbs to Lippe’s 6-2, 230 lbs, so size wise they’re evenly matched though judging by his record, Latimore is more boxer than slugger.
The winner makes a big splash in the boxing headlines thanks to the late, sometimes great Tommy Morrison connection, so I’m thinking both will be all in for this little doohickey.
