Trey Lippe-Morrison Back in Training With Roach at Wild Card

By Steve Kim

Heavyweight hopeful Trey Lippe-Morrison, the son of former WBO heavyweight belt-holder Tommy Morrison, is back at the Wild Card Boxing Club in Hollywood, California, working once again under the guidance of trainer Freddie Roach.

"It feels great, feels good to be back. I've been trying to come back out there for awhile and I finally made it," said Lippe on Tuesday morning to

Lippe, who has a record of 15-0 (15 KO's) explained to BoxingScene - "I left here because (Manny) Pacquiao and (Miguel)Cotto  were having two big fights coming up and I was really wanting some more one-on-one attention from Freddie at the time and my dads real trainer, Tommy Virgets, said he would train me. So that was always my dream and so I went out there.

"Tommy trained me for one fight and then after my fight, Tommy got offered to become the head of AIBA and so he had to go to Switzerland. He had to take that job and that left me trainerless. So I went back to Oklahoma and I picked up a fight there with one of my toughman trainers, so we just did one to stay busy and I told (my promoter) Tony Holden I wanted to come back out here with Freddie again and Freddie said he'd donate some one-on-one time to me this time."

Lippe, who last fought on June 30th, scoring a 3rd round stoppage of Byron Polley, says he will be returning to the ring on November 16th in Oklahoma City on the Maurice Hooker-Alex Saucedo undercard.

His father & Wilder were both brought along the same way. Smashing cans & building a very padded record before stepping up. Wlad Klitschko did the same. He has only 15 fights. He needs to be way busier if he…

If he can get signed to a promoter who would use as a draw for ring side seats and market him accordingly the kid will be ok. He needs a home arena and he needs to sell seats. If not…

"scoring a 3rd round stoppage of Byron Polley " Was at the fight and Brian Polley looked like a poor man's version of Butterbean. Remember him!! How someone like a Byron Polley can get a boxing license to step into…
